Field Day

Second grade will have Field Day on Monday, May 20th.  You need to bring a sack lunch, refillable water bottle, and beach towel.  Please make sure your name is on your water bottle.  We will be outside the ENTIRE day.  We are asking each class to wear the same color of t-shirt.  Our class is wearing green.  Make sure to put sunscreen on before school, wear tennis shoes, dress in our class color, and bring a $1 donation for Make-A-Wish.  Have a wonderful weekend!

We have been measuring everything in our classroom.  We have been learning both the U.S. Customary and Metric Systems.  We learned how to measure to the nearest inch, foot, yard, centimeter, and meter.  We have also learned how to select appropriate measuring tools to find out the length of objects.

                              Measuring things around the room to the nearest centimeter and inch.


Need to find directions using a map?  Ask a second grader!  We are becoming expert map readers.  We have learned about map symbols, the compass rose, and how to explain directional places on different types of maps.
        Here is a mapping activity from Daily Geography Practice we used to explain directions at a school.

Earth Day Learning

We learned all about how to reduce, reuse, and recycle in celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd.  We researched ways to take care of earth, ways people can hurt the earth, wrote ways to help, and about our human footprint.  We made I Love Earth posters that we displayed in the hallway to show our new learning about reduce, reuse, and recylce.  We have been learning about different kinds of maps in Social Studies so we also made earth books, shaped like globes to show ways people can hurt and help the earth.

OAA Spirit Week

Fancy outfit day was a huge hit!  It was fun to see everyone dressed up in their fancy clothes.

The last day of Spirit Week was dress like a rock star.  Here are some of our rock star classmates.

Congratulations to all our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders for showing what you know on the test!  We know you all did great.  We had fun decorating the 5th grade hall for testing week.
