Today we reviewed one half and represented the fraction with a fun ice cream cone project. After, we learned a new game called Roll, Slide, and Cover. Students practiced finding different fractions on a game board.
Yesterday we continued reading a Cam Jansen book as we worked on elements of a story. After break, students will work on reading their own mystery books and summarizing their books.
In CCT with Ms. P., we graduated from creative thinking and started focusing on critical thinking. We did an activity called busy bob where we learned how our brains critically adjust to situations. When we think critically, it has to make sense.
It's hard to believe 100 days have flown by us in second grade. We celebrated by showcasing our 100th Day projects and switching classrooms for super fun activities. Just to name a few:
Happy Friday! Even with only a three day week, we managed to squeeze in a lot of learning! We continued our study of motion and began reading Forces Make Things Move by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. We took some two-column notes and discussed friction and gravity. We will finish the book next week.
During CCT with Ms. P, we learned a lot about flexible thinking and what happens when we start with one planned idea and then other ideas change those plans. We used play-doh to create something. Then students added on one idea to their classmates idea. The results were awesome. 2C did a great job being flexible and encouraging towards each other.
We also started learning about fractions. We talked about ways to show one half. Next week we will talk about thirds and fourths. We have some great games to help practice fractions and a fun ice cream cone project coming up. In writing, we will continue writing opinions and finishing up our cinquaine poems!
Have a great (snowy) weekend!
