This week our second grade students will be working on:
Reading: Students will learn how to compare and contrast the most important points presented by two texts on the same topic.
Math: Students will partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
Writing: Students will work on opinion writing. They will work on drafting, editing, revising and publishing.
Science: Students will learn about plants and insects. We will be investigating and discussing butterflies, mealworms/beetles, silkworm moths and brassica plants.
