This year second graders are trying a
new routine called quiet time.
Quiet time takes place after lunch and recess and
supports our efforts to attend to the whole child.
Students in Room 203 worked together to develop a set of class rules.
After rule creation, each class member drew a picture of themselves following a rule.
Each day second graders are following rules to be successful at Estabrook School.
Everyday second grade mathematicians persevere during math workshop.
Students work with partners to engage in standards-based math activities that will help to develop
their foundational math understanding. Math Practice Standards are woven throughout math workshop
support student interactions with math concepts. Unit 1 focuses on the
decomposition of numbers through 10, telling time, money, fact fluency
to 20, skip counting, and using math tools such as a number grid.
Writing workshop is a time for writers to practice the craft moves they have learned.
Second grade writers are working Long and Strong by planning, writing, revising and editing.
Our first unit is Narrative writing. Students bring their own small moments to life by adding
dialogue, strong action words, and setting details.
Help your child at home by engaging them in discussions about
the details from moments in their life.
