Math: Data and Information and Addition and Subtraction
Also, we started our first unit which is learning about addition and subtraction number sentences. We have taken our first addition and subtraction timed tests. We have learned how to keep track of our scores by keeping a graph.

Writer's Notebook and What We are Working on in Writing
I have shared many books and modeled using books to make connections from the book to my own life. We will begin working on our first writing piece. Your child will be writing a Personal Narrative. This is a true story about an important event that has occurred in your child's life. Please be talking with your child about important possible events they might write about. A paper will come home next week for you to brainstorm about this idea.
Communities and Being a Good Citizen
Our Plants: Just Like Us Plants Need Many Things to Grow!
In reading we are learning about choosing "Just Right" books. Choosing the right book is as important as choosing the right size shoes. If they are too big or too small, we will have a hard time getting around. Please make sure your child is reading books that aren't too hard or too easy. The general rule is that if there are more than 5 words in a picture book or more than 5 in a chapter, then it is not a "Good Fit". It is too easy if there are no words to use strategies to figure out the word. Building our STAMINA has also been a big focus for us in 2nd grade.
