Fundations: Second graders have continued to work on spelling words with bonus letters. Additionally we have worked on words with glued sounds: ang, ank, ing, ink, ong, onk, ung, unk
Science: Second graders have begun doing science experiments about trees. Our first experiment was to figure out the job of the roots. We proved that the roots “drink” water for the rest of the tree and bring water and nutrients to other parts of the tree like the branches and leaves. Another experiment was to figure out what would happen if leaves do not get air or water. We have collected data after one week and will collect data after another week to find out our results.
We’ve read three different books about bullying:
Howard B. Wiggle Bottom Learns about Bullies by Howard Binkow
Bully Blockers Club by Theresa Bateman
Say Something by Peggy Moss
