What's New In C2

November 13 - December 1


We are wrapping up some nonfiction after having learned about various nonfiction text features and why they are useful to us when reading nonfiction books.

RI 2.5 - I can understand and use all the helpful parts of nonfiction books to find important facts and details quickly.

RI.2.10 I can read and understand second grade nonfiction by myself.

For the next two weeks leading up to Winter break, we will do an author study on Jan Brett using the fictional literature standard:

RL.2.7 I can use what I learn from pictures and words to show that I understand the characters, setting and events of a story.

We will read several of her stories and dissect how she (as both an author and illustrator) uses her vivid details and illustrations to help the readers understand the overall plot of the story.

We are also beginning to work on cursive writing (in most C2 classes). You can assist your child with this by helping them practice their lowercase letters at home!



We are currently deep into a unit on addition and subtraction! Depending on your lead learner, you may be doing addition and subtraction at the same time, or working on addition first, then subtraction.

Current standards:

2.NBT.5: I can add and subtract two-digit numbers.

2.NBT.6: I can add up to four 2-digit numbers.

2.NBT.B.7 I can use strategies to add numbers within 1000 and know when to regroup.

2.NBT.B.7 I can use strategies to subtract numbers within 1000 and know when to borrow.

See the link below for great strategies to help your child practice subtraction with regrouping!
