Pick up your garbage!

The 2nd graders have been playing garbage with 10 frames.  A lot of them knew how to play with playing cards, but we are using 10 frames to help with improving our number sense.  Some of the students have brought home their own deck to play.  Please ask them about it and take some time to play.  It is a lot of fun!

The 2nd graders have been working on inferring the last couple of weeks.  The used clues from the books to infer what the author was thinking.

We started our mapping unit today and read Mapping Penny's World.  It is a great way to introduce some of our mapping vocabulary.  We talked about what a scale, key, symbols, title, labels, and compass rose are.  Please ask your child about what these words mean.  We also looked at a map of the elementary.  The students added a title, key, symbols, labels, and a compass rose.
