Let's Get to the Core

That is the common core of course. This is our 2nd year to be using the Go Math Common Core series. The first year is a lot of learning but now we are starting to really understand and have fun with this new series. This year in Math our class has started "Math Workshop". It is a form of centers but really targets Math skills that 2nd graders need to be learning. The word MATH  stands for the following centers: Math Facts, At Your Seat, Teacher Choice, and Hands On. We rotate every 10 minutes so there is no time to be off task. The students absolutely LOVE this! Take a peak at "Math Workshop" in action.....

Also, speaking of core....we took a few minutes out of our day and enjoyed some "Johnny Appleseed" fun. Thanks to all the parents who sent in apples! We were apple do a taste test as well as graph our favorite color apple. This was a treat for the kids but it was a chance for me to take at peak at a few of their Math skills such as; Tally Marks and Graphing. Check out our class graph below

Last but certainly not least..... Personal Narratives: Published!!! I am so proud of how hard the student's worked through the Writing Procress. This week we are moving further into writing with Narrative Nonfiction.
