The class this year will be using a reading program called Ready Gen....I am very excited about it and more information will be coming! Read, read, read!
We will be comparing our 2 stories, Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday and A Chair For My Mother. We are going to be discussing character choices and using sequence words. Our sound combinations are ar, or, ore, and oar.
This year the class will be learning from the CCLS aligned program called My Math.
This week, we are beginning Chapter 4, which focuses on subtraction with regrouping. It is a skill that, just like addition, needs practice and please check homework before sending back into school. Thank you!
We practice our facts to increase fluency and speed. Any practice you can do at home would greatly benefit your second grader! Flash cards can be picked up at most dollar stores!
Students will be working with XtraMath.com, which is a fact practice computer site. Your child will be completing their work on this twice a week. A letter will be coming home soon to tell you how you can access it at home.
Your child will be using the Words Their Way spelling program in second grade. Formal spelling will be starting in a few weeks, with information to follow!
Your child will be bringing home a spelling word list that they are to make part of their homework routine. On Friday, your child will be given a spelling test of 10 words chosen at random....
No spelling this week...
