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:
Flicker Flash by: Joan Bransfield Graham
Honey I Love by: Eloise Greenfield
Where the Sidewalk Ends by: Shel Silverstein
As a celebration for Father’s Day, Bronx Delta invited dads into the classroom for donuts and an art activity. With our dads we made superhero characters, describing our dad’s best qualities and designing them in a superhero outfit. We had a great morning celebrating our dads!
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.
Bronx Delta first and second graders are engaged in diverse programs based on their interests. This video shows you an inside look at this round of clusters, and checks in with teachers and students on their experiences so far.
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!
