Second Grade


                             February Fun

The second grade is working hard.  The children learned many things about time and money.  They learned how to tell time to the hour, half hour, five minutes, quarter hour, and before the hour.  They also learned about A.M. and P.M. and elapsed time.  The children learned about pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars, and dollars.  They learned how to make change and how to add and subtract money. We have now started learning about Place Value to 1000.  In Superkids, the class has been enjoying the Superkids Book Club.  They read Breakout at the Bug Lab and Tornado.   The class has been writing  book reviews for the Book Club books and their library books.  The second graders are becoming accomplished authors.  They  published their personal stories.  They even wrote blurbs for their classmates stories. The class is now working on imaginary stories. In social studies the class  learned about the three branches of government.   They completed a Three Branches of Government project in STREAM class.  The class also learned about different symbols of our country.  They created their own bald eagles using their hands to make the wings.  The second grade travelled to Spain in February as a part of our Passport Project.  The children learned about the culture, history, and famous sights.  During our trip, the children enjoyed rice and beans, plantains, and flan.  They designed and made their own Melting Clocks in the style of Salvador Dali. cookies.   Next stop-Austraila!
