Second graders have spent a lot of time creating poems and perfecting our poetry techniques. Here we are celebrating the end of our poetry unit and the creation of our books of poems. You can see us here sharing our books with our writing groups, painting pictures to match our poems, and holding up our finished work.
Second graders have been working hard on writing different types of poems and using different poetry techniques. To prepare for publishing a book of our favorite poems we chose a few of our favorites and then received our own computers to type them out. After we typed them we chose different sizes and types of fonts, we bolded and underlined words, and we chose where to put the poem on the page. We can’t wait to put our poetry books together, paint them, and share them with each other!
With our Smart Board second graders have been doing many things! We especially love using it during math. Every morning we use it for the “Number of the Day” where we do different addition, subtraction, and base ten activities with the same number. During math workshop we are using the Smart Board to interactively problem solve and show our different addition and subtraction strategies.
