Our 2nd graders have just begun a new and exciting writing unit-poetry!  We are learning to look at everyday objects through a poet’s eyes.

In our upcoming lessons, we will be learning how to use line breaks, comparisons and how to add mood to our poems.

Poetry book recommendations:

2-204D Visits The Museum of Natural History

Class 2-204D went to The Museum of Natural History to study animals.  First, we saw an IMAX movie where we learned all about Humpback Whales.  Next, we took a tour of the exhibits about marine life, including studying jellyfish inside a virtual sea cave.  Finally, we explored prehistoric animals by looking at all of the different fossil exhibits.

204D’S Measurement Masters!

In our current math unit we are learning all about measurement.  We are measuring with inch models and inch rulers and we made our own rulers too.  In this activity we measured different objects in our classroom to find the lengths and widths in inches and feet.  Here we are hard at work!
