The class this year will be using a brand new reading program called Ready Gen....I am very excited about it and more information will be coming! Read, read, read!
For this short week, we will be starting Unit 3 which begins with the class reading a story about Theodore Roosevelt. We will be working on the skills that deal with plurals and the endings -es, -ies, and -y. Our writing will be focusing on text features and using them to enhance our writing. We begin the vowel sounds with long a this week.
This year the class will be learning from the CCLS aligned program called My Math.
We will be subtracting 2 digit numbers this week and checking subtraction with addition problems.
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.
Students this year will be working out of the Words Their Way spelling program. It is individualized to their needs and this week and next, we will be practicing all of the different activities that accompany the program. New lists will be coming home on Monday, with tests on Friday. Please take time each night to practice the words and work on the patterns within the words.
On Monday of each week a new list will come home to practice during the week. We practice the words during the school day, but I rely on your continued practice at home. It is really important, because there may be a day, when spelling practice in school is not completed.
New lists come home Monday, January 14 and tests will be on Friday, January 18....
