This past week, second grade students applied their map skills to create their own town maps! They included a compass rose and a map key with symbols. Using their knowledge of Cardinal Directions they wrote directions on how to find different places on their unique maps.
This week we celebrated Poetry Month with a week of poetry in Second Grade!
We read and listened to various poems and reflected on what we noticed about them and how the imagery helped us to picture the themes.
The second graders also wrote a different type of poem every day this week! They did a wonderful job.
Five Senses Poems
To celebrate A Poem In Your Pocket Day on April 30th, second graders videotaped themselves reading a poem to share with the IAS community and with their families around the world.
