It’s the end of the third week in second grade. There is still a lot to do, but we are on our way. We started book groups this week; begun studying phonics rules like vowel combinations and consonant blends; and we’re well on our way in Math, learning how to tell time, differentiate between coins, and memorize basic addition and subtraction facts. We’ve also started Shared Space work! Only three weeks and so much is happening. School is in session!
Maybe the most fun “happening” is Hoboken Studies. Each day students consider a different aspect of Hoboken. On day one, they talked about what kind of people live in Hoboken. Another day we discussed businesses that thrive here. After that, foods and religions. Today we went on a walk to Pier C and drew what people do for fun in Hoboken. Then WE had fun!
We closed our Thursday playing at Pier C! Look out for next week’s blog on Math!
