Bats

My class has been learning about bats.  We started reading non-fiction books about bats. They are really enjoying learning so many interesting facts about bats!   Here are a few bat books in my classroom library.



  
 
 
We wrote facts about bats and used watercolors to paint a sunset with a bat flying in the sky.  This idea came from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits. She has a great unit on bats. 
 
 
 
 
I made a math graphing page to go with our unit on bats. Click on the picture for a copy.

Math Morning Work for Second Grade

I like to give my second graders daily math review worksheets for morning work while I take attendance and lunch count.  I like to review the math skills my students have been taught on a daily basis.  Our daily morning work for this week and next week will be on place value to 1,000.  I made some review math worksheets for my  students on expanded form, patterns, what come before, after, and between and adding 10 more or 100 more.

Multiple Meaning Words

My class is working on multiple meaning words.  This is a very challenging skill for many students!  I made a worksheet so we can work on this skill.  The students have to read a sentence in the box and find another sentence that uses the word the same way.  Click on the picture to get your copy. Make sure your printer is set on landscape so it will print correctly.
