In Math this week, we worked on multiplication.In the last newsletter, I provided information about how we teach 2nd grade multiplication. Next week we will start division. In 2nd grade students need to understand that division is:
total ÷ groups = # in each group
In Science this week, we started discussing the Sun. Students were able to read about the Sun and write facts about the Sun. Next week we will be introducing basic astronomy concepts. Students will be investigating objects that can be observed in the day and night sky. Students will begin to notice that objects in the sky may change in appearance, and they will also recognize noticeable patterns of the changes observed. We will NOT discuss or cover the different planets in our Solar System.
Next week, we will also talk about the Moon. It's important for students to know that the Moon does not give off its own light. The Moon gets it light from the reflection of the Sun.
