Math: We have added in some new math choices for after we are done with independent work- Xtra Math and Versatiles. We have also learned about all of the math resources around our classroom and where all math materials are located. This way, second graders can be independent and can try using a math material to help them solve a challenging problem and then if they’re still stuck, can ask a teacher for help. Here are some pictures of second graders making math choices:
Second Step: One important social emotional skill we discussed this week was whole body listening. The components of this are ears listening, eyes on the speaker, quiet mouth, calm body, and mind thinking. We also discussed what it means to be respectful and how we can show respect to others during the school day.
