Week of January 17, 2011

We had a very busy and exciting week in second grade even with another snow day. We continue working on reading strategies, and we are regrouping in subtraction (which we are doing very well at).
We finished our magnet projects and presented our plays with magnet puppets.
After reading Smelly Socks by Robert Munsch, we had a science inquiry where we had to build our own boats that would cross our "river" and carry "cargo" (pennies). Not one of the boats were even close to the same. All but one would float, and I think that one would have, but we ran out of time to make adjustments.

Another exciting thing in our room is the easiteach projector in our room. Here we are sharing Daniel's power point that his Flat Stanley emailed to us. What it does is make our white markerboard act like a touch screen computer. We have a lot to learn about them, but we hope to be using them more and more as the year progresses.
