What’s up on this October Wednesday in 2nd grade?! Well, October is all about kindness at Webster Elementary! Each month our school celebrates a character trait so this month it’s all pink and all kindness. In 2nd grade we are taking on a kindness challenge. Each morning I draw a challenge card and the students have all day to the complete the challenge. It’s been so heart warming to watch the kindness flow in my room.
It’s also the end of October which means it’s the end of the first quarter which means assess, assess, assess and report. As in report cards. All of my reading assessments are done and I’m wrapping up the math so that I can have my report cards done on Friday.
We also have the Daily 5 up and running in 2nd grade! This is one of our favorite parts of the day. I’m able to meet with 3 reading groups a day while the kids are engaged in lots of their independent reading and writing. On the right side of this bulletin board is where the reading strategies will be posted. I just started introducing them this week.
We’ve studied bats and spiders which has been a lot of fun for October. I am also reading The Witches by Roald Dahl to the kids. They love it!
And that’s what’s up this month in grade 2! 🙂
