We are Learning...
We will continue our study of nonfiction texts. We will be learning how to gather information from informational texts so that we can become experts on a topic. We will focus on various nonfiction features and study them in more detail.
We will continue working on subtraction to 100 with and without regrouping. Please reinforce this skill at home as well. This can be a tricky topic for some students.
We will continue our unit on nonfiction writing texts. Students will understand the structure of explanatory and informational texts. They will learn how to write so that they can teach others.
We will continue our study of matter. Students will be studying the properties of solids, liquids, and gases.
Word study in 2nd grade includes spelling, phonics, and vocabulary development. We will be focusing on 13 new vocabulary words. Those words are: matter, solid, liquid , gas, property , mixture , solution , reaction, evaporation, matter, mass, condensation, and dissolve.
