Kiawah Indians

Determining Value

Second Graders challenged themselves to determine the greater value of two triple digit numbers this week.  They utilized base ten blocks to determine which value was greater! For example: 365 >262. Students exchanged base ten blocks when their value became greater than ten.

Book Club Buddies

Readers were paired with their book club buddy for an exciting new project in reading workshop. Second grade readers will compare their findings and predictions while reading the same fiction book.  This process will help build comprehension through accountability, as readers make discoveries together.

Kiawah Indians

This week Second Grade studied the Kiawah Indian tribes native to the Kiawah Island area. They learned about their culture, hunting and gathering practices, as well as language. Scholars also studied the transportation, housing, and food that the Indians ate. Students partnered together to illustrate what Indians life would look like in the past and in the present.
