Pre-2nd Graders Grow as Learners

Pre-2nd Graders Grow as Learners
Lauren Woody

Pre-2nd graders enjoy summer school as they grow as learners and develop new skills!

The Pre-2nd graders have been working hard on spelling, math, and reading this week. 

The students worked on their math skills, and played a True or False activity, where they had two addition or subtraction equations that they had to decide whether were equal to each other or not. To assist them in adding and subtracting, the students connected and pulled apart blocks and counted them to accurately add and subtract. Through this, they are developing important mathematical skills, and have quickly been improving their addition and subtraction. 

The Pre-2nd graders also have been working on spelling and vocabulary. Together, the students paired up blends of consonants with vowel pairs, to create different words. They also wrote down some letters to complete words. This activity not only develops the students’ spelling and vocabulary, but also cooperation and communication skills, all while putting their imaginative minds to good use. 

Furthermore, the students have been working on their reading skills. Not only have they been reading picture books, but they have also been summarizing the text, and sharing their summaries to the class. This allows them to  develop confidence in reading, as well as in presenting. Also, through summarizing the text, they are able to work on effectively finding important details and ideas of the book that they think are important to share with the class. 

Through incorporating fun activities to develop these important skills, the pre-2nd graders are having a lot of fun at summer school, and even visited the garden outside where they will have the opportunity to grow plants when the regular school year starts up again. Summer school is truly “A PLACE TO GROW”, and the pre-2nd graders are growing as learners and growing their knowledge. Plants grow, and they do too!
