In 2nd grade we learn about 5 of the 8 parts of speech. We've already worked on nouns, verbs, adjectives and pronouns. This week we learned about our last one, adverbs. They add information about a verb.
We already knew that sentences needed a capital letter and an end mark. We recently learned that all complete sentences also need a naming part (the subject) and a telling part (the predicate).
We recently started a unit about persuasive writing. Each week we go through these steps in the writing process.
We learned that biographies are books about people's lives. After reading a biography about the singer, Marian Anderson, we used what we learend to desgin a new outfit for her. I was amazed with the students' creativity!
We had a great time decorating bags and exchanging cards and treats on Valentine's Day.
