Second Graders were super excited to begin working on their Power Point Presentation this week! Students have already researched their information, written about their bird, and drawn their own pictures. Each student was assigned their own mini iPad that they will use to create their presentation. This week, students began typing up their research in Power Point by copying and pasting. These techno savvy students are even learning how to edit their own mistakes by using “spelling and grammar” check. Only a few more weeks until they present their final project of their Second Grade year.
Pass It On
Second Grade Scholars focused on preparing for our annual poetry reading, Pass It On.
These experts shared what could be expected and some tips to help each other be successful when reading their poems. Bold poets gave tips for reading loud, speaking confidently, and articulating each stanza clearly by pausing at line breaks. Second Graders are getting very excited about sharing their great work!
It was another successful Grandparent’s and Special Friends Day at TCS. To begin the morning, students welcomed grandparents into the classroom. Students shared a typical Morning Meeting with a fun greeting, activity, and morning message. Next students shared their favorite math game, Name That Number. Students also shared their favorite “Grandparent Parents and Special Friends Day” book by reading with their special guest. The day concluded with a trip to the book fair and a spectacular choir performance. What a delightful way to spend the day!
