It is always good to share, especially if it’s in the case of culture, which is something that enriches the world.

Last Thursday October 31st, the students from Projecte Educatiu 21 invited the class of Spanish Catalan Studies of Miss Mª Angeles to celebrate togheter the 2 festivities of this day:
Halloween and La Castanyada.
It was a good oppportunity to combine the different cultures and to get to know both of them better and from another perspective.
The students  had a very good time doing fun workshops in which they had exercises that involved solving riddless or designing and painting bookmarks. We finished the celebraition eating chestnuts and the typical “panellets,” which are the renowned Catalan pastries during the festivity of La Catanyada.

Homelink 8: understanding place value

Written by ValerieW. Posted in 2nd Grade


Dear Parents,

In Math this week we are thinking about




Understanding Place Value

Students understand that ones, tens and hundreds can be taken apart in different ways.  Students see that 149 is 1 hundred, 4 tens and 9 ones.  It is also 14 tens and 9 onesComposition and decomposition of numbers are foundational skill for computation.

Our learning targets are:

  • I can represent each digit in a three-digit number using hundreds, tens, and ones.
  • I can explain the value of each digit in a three-digit number (place value).
  • I can explain the value of the zeros in a three-digit number
  • I can show the same number in another way: 36 = 3 tens and 6 ones, and 36 = 2 tens and 16 ones

Our new question for our Second Grade Homelink is:

How do you know you’re right?
