We have been hard at work in second grade this week! Today we walked through a practice reading on the Chromebooks in the PowerTest program. I also sent home a paper explaining readtheory with your child’s login on it. This is also great practice for students to get used to answering questions and proving answers in passage.
**Students were able to type their animal research writing on our new Chromebooks they were so excited and worked really hard researching, and composing their writing! Check out I added a few photos of them working hard.
I also added a few photos from making churros with Ms. Broudy for learning about singing happy birthday in Spanish!
