Add it Up

As you know, we have currently been talking about addition with and without regrouping in math class. This is a fun song that we made to help students remember how to add two numbers with and without regrouping. Make sure that your child shows you the hand motions that go with it!  (I apologize in advance for it getting stuck in your head! :P)

Enjoy!

November STAR Party

Today we celebrated our excellent behavior in second grade! At our November Star Party, students were able to bring in an electronic device and go on school appropriate apps or games on it. Students were also allowed to go on the Brecknock page to find various fun, yet educational websites that they could go on.

Rock Stars were also given a blow pop to enjoy and the privilege of chewing gum while they played. Now we will continue on showing good behavior for our December Star Party.
