Science: In science we’ve been working on creating digital books using the app Book Creator. First, second graders chose a leaf to sketch and then identified that leaf using a tree guide book. We researched facts on our trees and also sketched the seed from each tree. We wrapped up our unit on Trees by thinking about why trees are so important and how we can take care of trees.
Second Step: We are working on building our self advocacy skills. When we need or want something, we need to be assertive. This means using a respectful voice, but clearly stating what we want or need.
Here are some photos from our time with our fifth grade buddies. We thought about things we are thankful for!
How can you tell the difference between a fiction and nonfiction book?
Why is it important to keep your audience in mind when you are writing non-ficition?
What does it mean to regroup or trade when you are adding or subtracting?
