We reached 36 days of second grade today. Wow!! This week we wrapped up our narrative writing unit by fancying up one star piece and sharing it with a small group of classmates. Then our classmates gave us a "glow" or compliment about our piece. We also had a Book Cafe in our class to celebrate all the great books we fell in love with during our first reading unit. Kids picked their favorite book, wrote a short summary about it, and then "dished" it up at our restaurant for other students to take a "taste". The kids had a lot of fun. In both reading and writing we then dived into the exciting world of nonfiction where we are reading to become experts and writing to teach others. In math we started our next math unit all about place value. This week we practiced building and writing 3-digit numbers, as well as learning new vocabulary words digit and value. Ask your child what the value is of the underlined digit in 427. Phew! It was a busy week.
Have a nice weekend!
