This week the second graders created models of the landforms they had been learning about. The requirement of the assignment was to include three water landforms and four land ones. We had several volcanoes, mountains, rivers, lakes and glaciers.

We finished up our first math unit this week with an assessment. Overal the students did a great job. This new math program has been an adjustment and the students are learning the expectations. For the first test, each question was read to them. I will not be doing that for each test, but I am trying to help them along to feel comfortable with the new program. Look for these to be sent home next week to be reviewed and signed and returned.
In reading, our focus was asking and answering question and finding the character, setting and events in a story. We read stories about pets and how we care for them.
Today was our first t-shirt day. We are celebrating "Being Determined" by wearing read shirts. Keep on the look out for information each month about what color shirt to wear for that month.
