Dictionaries, Sharing, and Math Fluency!!
Great Tuesday Friends! Yuni started our morning with Rockin' Robin and the clothespin game! Our friends Danny and Juan shared today. Danny showed off his super cool derby car and the trophy he won for most creatively constructed car! A combination Dominos Sonic car! Well done Danny! Sounds like it was a very exciting event, and topped off with a trophy! You really piqued a lot of interest from your audience and they had some wonderful comments and questions! Soon after Juan shared one of the coolest Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat books... in Spanish! WOW! He even read some for us too! Outstanding Juan! Wee loved it! In word study we practiced our r-controlled vowel a (car, farm, star, smart) and sorted our words and looked them up in the dictionary! Great work! Work board was very focused and productive, and friends had a great morning of literacy! In the afternoon, after math warm up, we buddy read from our books on measurement. We talked about what we already know about measurement, and read together with our buddies! Right after we were off to computers to learn some new math fluency games from the blog! Practice makes perfect, and some of the games today presented quite a challenge! FUN! We ended the day in PE with Ms. Gebo and noodle hockey! Now that's what I call a fun, friend filled Tuesday in second grade! PE tomorrow... sneakers please.
