Our essential question this week in reading was "How can a pet be an important friend?" We read a story about a boy who got his dog from the animal shelter and how he became his best friend. We also read a story about a boy whose pet was a goldfish. In the beginning, he wanted to trade his fish in for a different pet, but by the end of the story he appreciated and loved his pet goldfish.
We are finishing up our addition fact unit and moving on next week to subtraction facts. The students have been doing a lot of fact practice in class and are up for the challenge. Today we played some fun math games, including Prodigy math. Remember this is a great way to practice math at home while also having some fun.
To wrap up our balance investigation in science, we watched a video of some amazing acrobats balancing with their own bodies. Then we completed a worksheet to test what we have learned.
The most exciting news of the week is that we started reading a second grade tradition and favorite, The Witches by Roald Dahl.
Have a great weekend. Remember Monday is a Teacher's Inservice.
