In November we had an amazing performance for Veteran’s Day. In preparing for the program we discussed all the sacrifices soldiers make for us. As a class, we decided to write letters to Veterans to thank them for all they do for our country. We also learned our country is made up of 50 great states and we can name all of them in alphabetical order.
Second Grade also completed a unit on Narrative writing. We learned that a complete sentence must have a subject and a predicate. We practiced writing compound sentences too. In our writing, we trapped the readers by using our 5 sense. We wanted our readers to feel like they were there with us in the story. We look forward to sharing our stories with other students.
Every year we participate in an Hour of Code. This takes place during Computer Science Education Week which was December 3rd – 9th. Our class used a site called Tynker.com. We are learning so much about coding such as: patterns, sequencing, and following directions. Second grade loved it so much they want to continue this program throughout the school year.
Our annual school spelling bee was held on December 12th. Our class is sent two of our class spelling bee winners to compete. Ori and Eli did a wonderful job and we are so proud of them and proud of the winner 3rd grader, Liberty Lamb.
