Our second graders will be using various strategies including proof drawings, show all totals and new groups above/below to solve three digit equations. The children will experiment with the strategies and discover which strategy works best for them. Our main focus is on explaining the steps that we take to solve an equation. We are very excited for this adventure :)!
Coming up on Tuesday, April 24th the Georgetown Art Show will be taking place from 5:30-7:00 pm at the Hudsonville City Council building along with a night at Culver’s (Jenison location) from 5-8:00 pm. I signed up to be Culver’s food runner from 5-5:30 pm. I then plan to attend the art show to follow from 5:30-6:30 pm! If you can come join me at both these times I would love to see my amazing 2nd graders then! 🙂 We have so many amazing artists to celebrate and dining at Culver’s will be a hit too! Looking forward to it! Please mark your calendars!

Hello wonderful families!!
I am reaching out for some donations that are needed for our classroom! We use whiteboard dry erase markers daily- either the thick or thin markers, in any color would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for items for our school store (next time we shop is this Friday). These are packs of small items from either the Target birthday bins, dollar store, etc- small trinkets, pencils, pens, temp. tattoos, etc.
If you’re able to donate any of these items this week or next that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
Today we learned two strategies for how to solve two digit subtraction equations. This is a crucial skill in second grade and also something that simply takes practice to develop. The children were amazing today and worked so hard! Here is an explanation of the methods that we will be using (you may want to keep handy for upcoming homework :)).
Variety of common materials to create a container that may include:
- Cloth such as old jeans, shirts, jackets, and socks
- Plastic such as bubble wrap, plastic wrap, and sandwich bags
- Foam such as packing peanuts or disposable coffee cups
- Metal such as aluminum foil
- Other items such as pipe cleaners, paper, or cardboard
I hope everyone has enjoyed a wonderful break. I am missing my second graders and can’t wait to see everyone Monday and be back to a routine!
Here is to a great 2018 ahead together!!!
