Our class is excited about starting a new school year at Knollwood.  We have only been in school for a few weeks and we are already working hard and having fun.  We are enjoying the technology that our school has to offer.   We get to participate in interactive lessons on the NEC Projector and we get to use iPads to practice our reading, writing and mathematics skills.  The technology makes learning fun because the lessons are multi-sensory which makes them seem to come alive.   We also use the projector for our  Go Math Program from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.   In mathematics we have been exploring place value of whole numbers through the millions.  The class has also been enjoying reading and writing workshop.

This year, the students will take charge of their reading and get to choose books with topics they enjoy. They will use Chromebooks to enhance their reading and writing skills. In math, multi-sensory teaching will focus on each student's individual needs. Some of the second-grade math topics are numbers to 1,000, 3-digit addition and subtraction, time and money, and data. 

All the students are eager to learn and excited about the new school year. Once again, welcome back to Knollwood students and families. I am looking forward to a fantastic year!

It feels great to be back at Knollwood School! While the start of this academic year may seem different, our students still have the enthusiasm for school and are eager and ready to learn. 
The children have adapted well to hybrid and virtual learning, and together we are delving into new technology. It’s amazing to watch these young students navigate Seesaw, Google Classroom, and Google Meet with such great ease! 

As we move forward with our curriculum, we are integrating new digital resources into our reading, writing, and math programs. In reading, students are exploring online books using Raz-Kids and Epic!. They are utilizing these programs to track their reading progress and develop new reading goals for the school year. 

In writing, students are composing “small moment” stories also known as personal narratives. Throughout the drafting process, students at school or at home are able to watch as mini-lessons are live-streamed and modeled using a document camera. This has helped students develop their own stories and apply new strategies. 

Math instruction has become even more fun with Seesaw! Students are able to use special tools such as dragging and dropping objects to solve problems, drawing and highlighting over activities sheets, and using the microphone button to record their mathematical thinking. 
As you can see, we have had a busy start to our school year! These unusual times have given us a unique opportunity to explore curriculum topics in new and exciting ways!
