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 telling a character’s point of view. We will also be working on identifying the central message or lesson that a fable teaches, as well as some stories. We will comparing and contrasting two different fairy tales and folktales and giving reasons to support the 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 our opinion using details to help the reader understand why we feel a certain way about the topic.

MATH: We have begun to work on subtraction Rocket Math (math facts) and we will continue reviewing addition facts. We will start working on geometry and dividing shapes (rectangles, squares and circles) into halves, thirds, and fourths. We will turn our word problem focus to two step equations. We will continue to work on place value and using this strategy to solve addition and subtraction problems. We will begin adding and subtracting three digit numbers as well as adding four two-digit numbers. Please work with your child at home on these math skills.

SCIENCE:  We will be working on life cycles in our classroom and inherited traits.

SOCIAL STUDIES: We will learn about economics: goods, services, needs and wants. We will also focus on historical figures and intergrade it with creating a timeline of their life and our own lives.
