Welcome to Second Grade!!!

Please make sure your child is reading nightly. It is very important that students read at least 20 minutes each day. After your child finishes reading, ask some of these questions: Where did the story happen? Who were the main characters in the story? What was the main idea of the story?


This quarter we will be working on:

ELA: We will be working on identifying the parts of a poem that help us to understand the meaning of it. We will also be working on identifying the different points of view of characters in a story. We will begin identifying the main idea of a paragraph or passage using details to support our reasons. We will also be comparing two different passages on the same topic and describe how the author supports this reason.

Please try to integrate written comprehension questions with your child nightly. Check their notebook for written comprehension question stems and calendar to see if they have reached their incentive awards.

In writing, we will begin writing paragraphs to explain information learned from a given topic.

MATH: We have begun to work on subtraction Rocket Math (math facts) and we will continue reviewing addition facts. We will start to focus on three and four digit numbers and being able to show them in standard, expanded, and word form. We will turn our word problem focus to two step equations. We will be comparing numbers, working with number lines and adding and subtracting money using dollar bills. We will begin to tell time to the five minutes. Please work with your child at home on these math skills.

SCIENCE: We will be working on life cycles and life science in the STEM lab. We will also be working on Weather in the classroom.

SOCIAL STUDIES: We will learn about maps, how they are created, and the importance of them. We will also begin to learn about how environments affect our living.
