Math – Currently, 2nd Graders are busy learning about 2- and 3-dimensional shapes and solids. They are naming them; triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons and octagons. They are learning the attributes of polygons and discerning non-examples using those attributes; closed, 2-dimensional shapes with only straight lines. Students are also learning to name shapes and solids by counting the number of sides or vertices, edges and faces.
Soon we will start our unit on measurement. Students will use rulers, yard and meter sticks to measure objects in their surroundings. They will practice estimating lengths, learn how to calculate areas.
