Thank you for all your support and donations to make our Fall Walk-a-Thon a success! We raised $12,000.00. As a result, Mr. Meyer & Mr. Knapp had to kiss a frog! :)

Last week we learned about common and proper nouns. (Ask your child to tell you the proper noun phrase! :)) Each child we given a noun and had to decide if it was common or proper. If it was proper they had to write it with correct capitalization.

To end our unit on punctuation and types of sentences we played a popcorn game. Each child picked a piece of popcorn that had a sentence on it. They had to determine what type of sentence it was and what punctuation it needed. If they got it correct they got to crumple the popcorn piece up and toss it into the correct bag. After we played the game the students enjoyed a popcorn treat while working on an assignment.
Reese is concentrating hard to make it.

One of the second grade standards is to discuss the different seasons. To cover this standard the students will be observing a tree all throughout the year. The students will draw and color the tree and then draw an activity they like to do during that season. They must also write a sentence describing the activity they drew.
Last week we learned about different types of sentences. We had fun learning about commands and exclamations. The students picked a card and had to decide what type of sentence they had and what punctuation it needed. If they choose a command they got to read their sentence with the Fire Chief's hat, if they choose an exclamation they got to read their sentence with the joker's hat on!
