This week we are continuing our look at double-digit addition and subtraction as well as strategies for adding 3 or more numbers together. We are also reviewing measuring in inches, centimeters and meters. We are continuing to practice our basic multiplication. In 2nd grade we try to master multiples of 0, 1, 2, 5, 10 and 11. Many students are already well on their way to accomplishing this and working on multiples of 3, 4 and 6.
In science we will be starting a unit on earth materials. This unit has a lot of hands on activities in which we will study and experiment on various rock types. Although this is a new unit, we will be building off of our last study of water and landforms.
We were lucky last week to have Dr. Mouchantat visit our classroom and help us conduct an experiment on germs. This week we will be concluding that by looking at what we were able to grow...I can only imagine!! :)
Even though this is a short week, it should be a lot of fun. If you have any questions, please let me know.
