2nd Grade Happenings

My 2nd graders have been hard at work daily trying to make navigating the JES halls easier! Students are measuring the school to create accurate directions to commonly used locations around the school. They settled on how to get to the nurse from south porch, how to get from the office to the explorer floor, and how to get to the cafeteria from the office. 

Besides creating school directions, 2nd graders are focusing on MP. 3, which asks students construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Students complete daily problems of the day and are asked to present their solution in a clear and articulate manner. They field critique from other students and either defend their work or rethink their work. Students have been making great strides in being able to explain their thinking! Their public speaking is also improving!
