The KLD kids wrote poems about different holidays. They each wrote different lines and then put them together as a group poem. Each group read their poem to the class when finished. Wonderful collaboration and writing efforts!
Measurement with our stuffed animals
The children used unifix cubes to measure the length of their stuffed animal. They then took the cubes and found two items in the room that were the same length as their train of cubes. Last, we put them in a row from the smallest to the longest.
Avid Readers read everywhere!
Our last reading unit is to celebrate being an avid reader! Avid readers love books, read often and read everywhere! The children enjoyed “flashlight reading” by themselves or with others.
Science learnings about plants & animals
We toured the 2nd Grade hallway to see the environments created by the 2nd Grade students. We walked through a rainforest, past a desert, polar region and the ocean!
The KLD kids used laptops, ipads and the program Pebble Go to research an animal.They worked with a partner in the Innovation Hub to find QR codes that showed the food and habitat for their animal research project. Then the children worked together to draw and write the information on a graphic organizer. They will use this information to create a poster about their animal and what people can do to help protect its habitat. Posters will be displayed for our End of Year celebration next Friday morning!
