Second grade has been working hard for the past month and we have a lot of things to look forward to this month. The whole class has been working hard on the Accelerated Reading and Accelerated Math programs. We have already earned many dog tags and the whole class has earned their first math medal and many have also received their second medal also!
We recently had a great field trip to Jefferson Patterson Park to learn about Native American and European Settler lives in Southern Maryland. The class enjoyed learning how to use colonial tools to make shingles, create fire, clay pots, and play a colonial game with hoops and sticks.
Students have been great with the weekly spelling words and reading stories. We completed the first chapter in Social Studies about different types of communities. Check out our Community posters in our hall! We are moving on to Science for the remainder of the first quarter. Students will be learning about plants and animals. We have been observing seeds and look forward to a special guest to show us all about different seeds.
