Second Grade Room 214

Just another CUIP Schools weblog site

Week of October 30th

We will be leaving for our field trip on Tuesday! Please make sure to dress your child appropriately as it will be in the 40s and we will be outside. For those who are chaperoning I will email you tomorrow with further details.  We are in need of snack- graham crackers, goldfish, pretzels, apples are great options and will be greatly appreciated.  As a reminder, all birthdays are to be celebrated on the last Friday of the month.  Due to school policy, treats should be on the healthier side- fruit roll ups, juice boxes, fruit snacks are good alternatives.

This week…

Writing Workshop- we will publish our 2nd personal narratives this week.  Kids have been doing a great job trying different leads and including dialogue.

Reading Workshop- we are working to include evidence from the text in our predictions.   I predict ______ is going to happen because ____________ is a prompt we use often.  We are also talking about how we can “elaborate” when we talk to our reading partners about our books.

Math- we will finish up unit 2 this week and have a unit test on Thursday.

Social Studies-  we will continue learning about state and local government and also continue on our Dia de Los Muertos art activities- sugar skulls and paper picado.

Science-  Last week we read about geotechnical engineering which leads us into this weeks investigation called “Stick in the mud.”  It will relate to geotechnical engineering and understanding how structures need to be supported in the earth.
