Monday, November 18

Here is what we are working on in 2nd grade:

Writing: Students are researching an animal anywhere in the world for a second writing piece.

ELAGSE2W2: Write informative/explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section.

ELAGSE2W5: With guidance and support from adults and peers, focus on a topic and strengthen writing as needed by revising and editing.

ELAGSE2L2: Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.

Reading: Students will use what they know about informational text to ask and answer questions such a who, what, when, why and how to demonstrate understanding of key details. Through shared and independent reading, students will explore the lives and contributions of James Oglethorpe, Tomohichi, Mary Musgrove and Sequoyah in Georgia history. Students will explore making connections and will discover how perspectives impact relationships. Students will:

ELAGSE2RI1: Ask and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text.

ELAGSERF3I: Describe the historical connections between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in text.

ELAGSERF3a/b: Identify the sounds for common vowel teams; can decode words with common vowel teams.

———————————————————————————————-

Math: Students will begin an inquiry into measurement. Over the next three weeks, students will:

MGSE2.MD.1 Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.

MGSE2.MD.2 Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.  Understand the relative size of units in different systems of measurement.  For example, an inch is longer than a centimeter. (Students are not expected to convert between systems of measurement.)

MGSE2.MD.3 Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.

MGSE2.MD.4 Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard-length unit.

———————————————————————————————-

Social Studies Inquiry: Students will continue to explore the lives and contributions of James Oglethorpe, Tomohichi, Mary Musgrove and Sequoyah in Georgia history and will make connections with the Central Idea, “Relationships impact outcomes.” This week, students begin working with the key concept perspective and the idea that perspective can impact relationships. Students will:
