We also made some portraits of what the students' felt like they would look at 100 years of age. With this they included a bucket list of things they would like to do 'Before they turn 100.'
We continued to study folktales...this week focusing on Fairy Tales. We discussed the elements of Fairy Tales. Thanks again to Mrs. Moran for providing the artwork on our poster!!
We read different versions of the classic Cinderella story. We compared their likes and dislikes and looked for the elements of Fairy Tales in each of the stories. To end our unit on Folktales/Fairy Tales we did a fun writing project...'If I Had a Fairy Godmother...'
In Math, the Unit 8 test was taken. This assessment focused on fractions. This test and the remaining throughout the school year focus on new skills for second graders. Look for this test to come home next week to be signed and returned.
On another note about math...we have been practicing subtraction a lot lately. This is a poem that we use in class to help the students remember what to do when subtracting. If you practice at home, you should use it too.
In Social Studies this week, we celebrated Black History month be reading about some famous African Americans. Some of them were Jackie Robinson, Wilma Rudolph and Harriet Tubman.
In Science, we continue to study liquids. Next week will be one of our most exciting lessons...drop races.
Have a great weekend. Stay dry!!
