2nd Grade 2nd Grade

Look What We're Doing with Technology!

 

Representing Numbers

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.

New eBooks by the Second Graders

The second graders have been busy sharing their learning by creating ePub books using the Book Creator app (an excellent and extremely intuitive way for any age to create an eBook).

In order to read the books, you must have an iOS device (iPad/iPhone) and the iBooks app.

While on an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, etc), tap on a book link below.

Tap on the download button.

Choose Open in iBooks

 

It is also possible to read the book on a PC/Mac IF you use the Google Chrome browser. Click here for directions.

 

Here are the books that have been created so far:

 

Mrs. Cooper: Snow People Cinquain Poems (Read Let It Snow for more info)

Mrs. Cooper is also working on a collaborative community iBook with classes around the world. Read more about it in this blog post.

Weather ABC Video by Mrs. Shapard's Class

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.)


For International Dot Day, the second graders read The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds. We discussed how, even at their young age, they could make a difference in someone's life. Their task was to write what they could do then decorate the special dot picture from ColAR Mix. Then they used the ColAR Mix app to watch their drawing come to life!

 

Mrs. Shapard's class had additional photos so we combined those into a class animoto.
