What We Do In School
In computers, we have been doing things on islands. We have made our own islands. We had to include a lot of things in our own islands. They are coast, prairie, bay, mountain, valley and river. A coast is like a beach. A prairie has a LOT of grass. A bay is surrounded by 3 pieces of land. On a mountain there is a peak at the top. A valley is in between two low mountains and a river is a LOT of water.
In music, we have learned a couple of new songs. They are Fifty Nifty, Fall Back, October Rocktober and Super Turkey. Super Turkey is very funny.
In gym, we have been playing a lot of fun games. One of the games is called Capture the Flag. We wear little belts and they have little flags on them. If the person on the other team has the ball, we can run after them and grab their flag off of them. Then the new round begins.
In library, we have been reading books by Donna Jo Napoli. She wrote a lot of books and three of them are Hands and Hearts, Albert, and A Single Pearl.
In science we do a LOT of very FUN experiments. So far, they are on temperature and fire safety. Science is VERY, VERY, VERY F-U-N!
In keyboarding, we have not done a lot except we have just been practicing how to turn on and off the keyboard. We have also been typing these letters: fdsa, asdf, ab, and ab a couple of times. Keyboarding is great!
In English, we have been doing our Super Kids a lot. Super Kids is very fun! It has a super magazine that has a lot of cool things in it. When Mrs. Levine tells us not to open it, we always do because it is very interesting and very cool. Super Kids also has a decodable reader that has over 100 great pages in it. Super Kids also has a word workbook where we do a lot of our Super Kids writing.
In Hebrew, we have been doing chumash which is Torah, safa which is Hebrew and t’filah which is prayer. In the chumash, we have been studying a lot about Avram, Lot, and Sarah. In safa, we have been doing a lot of stories. One of them is Sarah’s birthday. In t’filah, we do a lot of prayers in our siddur. Two of them that we really have to study are Ashrei and Hallelujah.
These are the things that we do in second grade at KSDS. Our school is very fun and we learn a lot!
