Grade 2 Mrs. Ciolino's Class


Welcome to Second Grade!


It's late November and we have started a Christmas around the world unit. We traveled to France, learned some French Christmas words and made Noel Banners...a French tradition to welcome family and friends! As we were working, we listened to French Christmas music. As you can see, we had a blast! 







Do you know Flat Stanley? Flat Stanley is a book written in 1964 by Jeff Brown.In the book, Stanley is accidentally flattened. He is then sent on a trip to have adventures. The 2nd graders made their own Flat Stanleys, and posters about the adventures!




We are getting ready for Thanksgiving!





This week my math groups are working on repeated addition. One group was rolling dice to put together a repeated addition sentence, and the other group was using cards and recording sheets.














Today in Science we explored weather – including tornadoes!
























We are off to a Great Start!  We are using our new Wonders LA program and working in small groups to pick out key details from text and illustrations.
