Second Grade Room 214

Just another CUIP Schools weblog site

Week of February 5th

Hi 214 Families!  We have started a class email with the help of Ned’s mom, Erin!  Thank you for your help!  If you have not been added to the list please let me know and we will add you right away.  I feel like this is a good way to have an extra line of communication for extra things going on.

What is happening this week…

Reading Workshop:  This past week we worked fluency.  We thought about dialogue tags, mood, and pacing and practiced rereading in our heads and reading with the characters voice in mind. This week we will work on reading at a just right pace and explore literary language.

Math:  We wrapped up Unit 5 last week and will begin Unit 6.  This week we will practice representing data, comparing number story, and interpreting number stories.

Writing Workshop: We have started our unit on Opinion writing.  This past week we started writing letters about our favorite books.  We included information about our favorite character, part, and big ideas.  This week we will work with partners to retell our books to make our letters better and include text evidence.  We will also write with our audience in mind and use a checklist.

Science:  This week we will study solid materials ad notice the behavior of solid materials in various settings.  We will combine and separate solid materials of different particle sizes.  We will also compare the behavior of solids and liquids in similar settings.

Social Studies:  Last week we started an Encyclopedia of the Civil Rights Movement.  We began by learning about  Ruby Bridges and this week will study Rosa Parks and Thurgood Marshall.
