Where do I begin? It was so nice to meet with all of you during conferences. We have been very busy in grade 2!
Second graders have been working very hard on persuasive writing. We completed a piece called Scarecrow For Hire. The children created a scarecrow and wrote to a farmer. They were very creative and I think they may have new jobs! They completed a graphic organizer, which helped them get their thoughts down before completing their writing.
Last week we had a great time learning about the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. We watched an old parade and their were LOTs of ooohhs and ahhhs! This was a 3 part project and another persuasive writing piece. I was impressed at their persistence and their final product! Here are so teasers:
We finally started a science unit on erosion and the earth's surface. It is fun to see their minds work and the hear the questions they ask. Her are some pictures of our first activity on rivers.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
