  • Reading Reading


    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!


    We are finishing up our Module A story and will be writing our assessment piece this week.  We will be starting Unit 5 Module B story Pioneers to the West and working with the prefixes un, re, pre, and dis.  We will be writing narrative stories.

  • Math

    This year the class will be learning from the CCLS aligned program called My Math.  


    Our next chapter in math deals with creating and reading graphs.  This week we will be working with pictographs and bar graphs.

  • Fact Practice


    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.

  • Spelling

        Our spelling will be changing for the rest of the year.  I recently sat through a  Ready Gen training and we had a discussion on spelling.  After this discussion, I am moving away from Words Their Way and will be using the spelling lists that come with the reading program.  They follow the patterns that the class is learning on a daily basis in reading.  

    There will be pretest on Monday of each week.  If your child gets a 100, they will be given a WTW list to work on during the week.  If there is no 100, the list will come home with another test on Friday.  The higher score will be recorded.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
