Language Arts Warm Ups
The second graders work hard daily on a spiral review warm up. This engages their brain, reviews what they have learned in the past, and gives them a chance to start the day off feeling successful!
Sustained Silent Reading
We do SSR (sustained silent reading) daily. Enjoying reading is one of my second grade goals. I believe students need to first be reading at their appropriate level to practice building vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. They also get fun time to partner read or read in a fun place in the room.
Computers in the Classroom
We have six computers. This makes it easy to do groups. The students use these computers for math activity, reading tests, and to learn typing.
