Second Grade Classes:
Welcome to the gifted and talented class in second grade!!
We still begin each class with a gadget. I did a lot of shopping over the summer and found some very interesting gadgets for this year!! I will try to post pictures of the gadgets we have already guessed so you can see if you know what they are. For second I also use the P.E.T.S. curriculum that the district purchased. P.E.T.S. is a systematized enrichment and diagnostic thinking skills program. Lessons are presented in convergent analysis, divergent synthesis, visual/spatial thinking, and evaluation.
During this first rotation, all of the second grade classes will be starting their first writing activity of the year today. We read the book "The Important Book" by Margaret Wise Brown and discussed with she chose the things she did as being important to her. We are now in the process of creating an important book for each classroom. Each learner will have their own page in the book talking about what is important about them. The first step each learner needs to complete is to create a list of at least five important things about themselves. They will then pick one item from their list and create a page for the classroom book elaborating on why that is an important fact about them. Stay tuned to see pictures of each page!
