Standard Units of Measurement
Second Graders kicked off math with an exciting project on standard units of measurement. We began with a ruler which amounted to 12 inches or 1 foot. Second Graders partnered with another classmate for a measuring project in our classroom. They explored measuring classroom objects, like our board and desks, to see how many inches or feet they equaled.
Repetition and Endings
Our poetry studies continued this week as we looked for patterns of repetition in our poems, as well as focused on the ending lines of a poem. Scholars identified that poems have a way of repeating lines and words to convey a poet’s deeper meaning. Second Graders also noticed that the last line of a poem is usually one of the most important parts of the poem, because it can lead the reader straight to the deeper meaning.
On Wednesday Second Graders took a field trip to the Saint Andrews Parks and Playground Gymnasium and Annex. Scholars first started out by doing a group game of Pac Man. Third Graders joined us and scholars played a game of basketball, rode scooters, and played a hula hoop game. Ask your scholar what was their favorite part of the trip!
