Reader’s Workshop: In Reader’s Workshop, students have been learning how to solve keywords using the context of the sentence and text features. Students are learning the importance of these keywords and how it impacts their understanding of nonfiction text.


Whole Page

Writer’s Workshop: In Writer’s Workshop, students are drafting nonfiction pieces. They are writing about topics they know a lot about. They are also setting goals for themselves as writers. As they continue to write, they are making sure their writing includes the goal they are working on.

Set Goals

Author’s Celebration: We want to extend our sincere gratitude to you for coming and supporting your child at the Author’s Celebration. The students were so proud to share their work as authors. The writing process can be a long one. Our students started their journey in late November and spent the next 6-7 weeks planning, drafting, revising, and publishing. All of this work is to be celebrated. Please look at our website for a slideshow of pictures from the celebration.


Math Workshop: In Math Workshop, students learned about polygons, quadrilaterals and vertices. They also took our Module 7 assessment. This week we start Module 8 and learn about two digit numbers with regrouping!


The 100th Day of School:  We celebrated the 100th day of school this week. Mrs. Tang had students string 100th day necklaces. In Rylan’s rotation, students used an app to age themselves and wrote about what they would like to do when they are 100. In Miss Winslow’s rotation, Mint (our garden docent) and other 2nd grade moms taught the students about popcorn and had students make some using an air popper. Students also got to make fresh lemonade. It was  a fun day!
