A Busy Week in Second Grade!

Independence!

In SEL, students have been discussing what it means to be independent! These impressive second graders talked about all of the ways they are independent at home and at school! We loved watching them beam with pride as they shared how they can independently complete work, take care of the materials in the classroom, make their own breakfast and much more!

Book Awards!

Second graders nominated their favorite books to win awards in various categories. Young authors convinced their classmates why certain books should win by writing passages filled with compelling and strong evidence! Students then read each nomination and cast their votes! 

Here are our winning titles! Drumroll please…..

The Funniest Book – “Read the Book, Lemmings!”

The Most Interesting Book – “The Book with No Pictures”

The Most Adventurous Book – “Press Start”

The Book with the Best Lesson – Pig the Pug

Cooper Village News!

Our second grade city planners are learning about natural disasters in social studies. We are learning about hurricanes and earthquakes this week. They will keep this in mind when they are deciding where to build our village!

They are also researching the various jobs they would need for their businesses they previously chose. Luckily we have some experts in our Cooper School community who have visited our classroom. We have had presentations from Dr. Wildstein, Police Officer Moy, and Rob Fowler this week. We were impressed with all of the students’ thoughtful questions!
