Shurley English Sentence Rap


My kids love anything like this!! :) I printed the jingle off for them to put into their poetry books for practice as well. I got the jingle from Shurley Jingles. Enjoy! :)

Word Study charts

Here are our classroom charts for word study! The students look here for clarification on the different sorts. Our word study is based on Words their Way. 

Monkey math in 2nd grade

We have several ways we celebrate our students' success within monkey math. We have a celebration wall shown below, monkeys in the hallway for students to move up a ladder of success, and monkey/banana stickers for their folders that smell like bananas! Students take home monkey math twice a week for extra addition computation practice and we practice at school daily! :)
