The students have been discussing the value of numbers and what each digit represents. After seeing and idea for showing 2-digit numbers from a class in Canada, we decided that showing 3 digit numbers would go right along with the math lessons in 2nd grade. Please read How Can Numbers be Represented? for an explanation of the project. Below are pictures of each class as they explored ways to show their number.

Learning About Homophones
The second graders have been learning about homophones in their spelling units. Taking what they had learned, the students used the Explain Everything app to illustrate their homophones and then record a sentence using the words. The individual videos were combined into a class video.

Mrs. Shapard's class has been studying weather and decided to create a video to share what they had learned. Enjoy!
We may not have snow but we do have Snow People!
Students did a snow person glyph where they drew something on their picture by answering a variety of questions. Enjoy their snow people!
Mrs. Cooper and Mrs. Shapard guided their children in writing cinquain poems about their snow people. These were compiled into class books using the Book Creator app. Please read my blog post, Let it Snow, to download their books on your iOS device. (The links are at the bottom of the post.)
