We had fun adding strings of numbers using dominoes. ...continue reading "Making Number Strings with Dominoes"
This week, in Social Studies, we have studied communities. What we learned was carried over to our visit to the STEAM lab. Each group built an item that might be in a community. They then had to identify if it would be found in an urban community, suburban community, or a rural community. The class improved their teamwork skills while completing the projects. We had great results!
Photo #1: This group built a water park which would mostly be found in an urban area. It includes a pool and a hotel.
Photo #2: This group built a chocolate factory which could be found in a rural or urban area. It includes a round area to mix the chocolate and tubes to carry the chocolate through the factory.
Photo #3: This group made a hotel with three diving boards at the pool. This would be found in rural, suburban, or urban communities.
Photo #4: This group made a school. The school has a class with children and a teacher. Flowers are on top of the school. The playground has spinning monkey bars.
The children enjoyed seeing you at Math Parenting Day. Magic Pot is a game that we play to help us learn our double facts. Try it at home.

Student Expectations in Mrs. L. Brown’s Class (Parents please review these with your child):
Never give up - Always try hard. You will learn from trying things that are a bit difficult.
Be willing to listen to others – You will not always agree with what others have to say, but be respectful and not rude to those with whom you disagree.
Be honest – We all make mistakes. Owning up to whatever you do will be very helpful in our classroom. There are consequences for good behavior and bad behavior. We like the good consequences better.
Be willing to learn - Learning new and different things will prepare you for the future.
Outstanding behavior – Everyone enjoys being around people that are peaceful and fun. You cannot do your best if you or others are disruptive in class. You will have time for play, only at the appropriate time.
I know it’s a lot to think about, don’t worry, you will have a great time in 2nd grade!!!
