Martin's Big Words

Important Americans is a topic that is covered heavily in second grade social studies. Over the last two weeks, Room 16 has been learning about Martin Luther King Jr. We read books, engaged in classroom discussions, viewed MLK's story as told by Kid President and watched a clip of the I Have  Dream speech. The students were genuinely inspired by his story and learned so much about this influential leader. 

Students also created an MLK craft. Under their very own MLK, they wrote all about how he changed the world for the better and how he lived his life with the following words guiding him: LOVE, TOGETHER, FREEDOM and PEACE. Their writing was so touching and impressive. If you are at school in the coming days, please swing by to see what your child wrote. You will be so proud!

I know these second graders will grow up to be kind, respectful and knowledgable adults!

Room 16 Learning Update

Reading: Students will be learning more about non-fiction texts. We will focus on text features and their purposes. This month, students will begin a research project on Important Americans, which they will need this background to aid in their research. More to come about the research project!

Writing: With the start of a new year, comes the start of a new writing unit. The children will be learning more about information writing, specifically, about the kinds of information that scientists are apt to do. They will be conducting various experiments to create lab reports.

Spelling: There will not be a new spelling sort coming home this week. The students will be taking a couple of spelling assessments in class.

Math: We are starting a new math unit focusing on multiplication and division.
