2nd Grade

The second graders are off to a great start at GMS!

We continue to work daily on being a learner and good citizen both in and out of our classroom. Every day we are thinking of new ways to show that we are Respectful, Responsible and Ready to Learn.

We are reading many different genres of text. We are working on finding the central idea and
supporting details in all our texts. We have also been discussing our characters and the traits that define them.

In math, we continue to work on double-digit addition. This week are starting double-digit subtraction.
We have learned many different ways to solve our problems. We also have a thousand club. Our goal is that each friend will write to 1,000 by the end of second grade. Each of us will continue to work at our own pace to reach our goal.

Coding is one of our favorite subjects. We have been using our coding vocabulary to give our robots
commands. We used to get frustrated when our robot would not do what we wanted but get a little
better every time we practice. Next up-we will start to build our own codes on the computer!

We are “Mavericks On A Mission!”
