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!
This week, we will be jumping right back into things with a story about Theodore Roosevelt. It is a great non-fiction story about his life and all of his accomplishments. We will be working on daily vocabulary words and high frequency reading words. Our skill this week works with the a, ai, and ay sound. We are going to be writing about Snowflake Bentley.
This year the class will be learning from the CCLS aligned program called My Math.
This week, we will be starting Chapter 6 and practicing mentally adding 10 or 100 to a number. We will also be learning the beginning stages of adding 3-digit numbers with regrouping.
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....
New lists will come home January 13 and tests will be on January 17....
