We had such a great day in second grade today! In math, we continued to work on place value in the hundreds. We talked specifically about the value of each digit in a three digit number. In reading, we read the decodable took "A Plant that Acts Like an Animal" and did comprehension questions. We also read the story "I See Animals Hiding." In grammar, we discussed possessive adjectives. And in science we learned two awesome facts....
1- The first woman in space was named Valentina :) (Valentina Tereshkova)
2- The term solar system comes from the Latin word "sol" meaning sun...it is named after the sun because the sun is the most important thing in the solar system
I did tell the students to explain these two facts, hopefully they remembered!
In social studies we discussed national symbols - specifically the Liberty Bell, the Statue of Liberyt, the flag and the bald eagle. We also read a Scholastic News about bison snd how they were recently named the national mammal.
It was a very productive day!
