What's New In C2
January 29 - February 9
As we wrap up our literacy focus on main idea and supporting details, we have learned how to infer the main idea and details in both fiction and non-fiction texts. Learners are doing a great job with this! Below you will find an image that you can use when reading with your child at home to continue practicing this skill.
Next week we will continue reading non-fiction texts, but focus our attention on the author's purpose. Learning will be expected to identify what the author wants them to know.
RI.2.6, I can identify if the author is explaining, describing, or answering when reading a nonfiction text.
Other things you can work on:
Identifying and knowing how to properly write and spell irregular plural nouns, past tense irregular verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.
Cursive- We have all officially begun teaching cursive! You can assist your child with this by helping them practice their lowercase letters at home!
Resources for Home
All learners have been working hard learning addition and subtraction. Please work with your child on the progression of adding and subtracting. Start by adding/subtracting within 100 and moving towards 1000. They also need to be able to know when they will need to regroup.
2.NBT.B.7 I can use strategies to add numbers within 1000 and know when to regroup. (ex. 367+892)
2.NBT.B.7 I can use strategies to subtract numbers within 1000 and know when to borrow. (ex. 612-398)
2.MD.7 I can write and tell time to the nearest five minutes on an analog or digital clock.
2.MD.7 I can use a.m. and p.m. properly when telling time to the nearest five minutes.
2.MD.8 I can create and solve money words problems using quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies.
Other things you can work on:
Fact Fluency- Use flash cards, Front Row, or you can ask your child various single digit math facts
Money- knowing the value of each coin, learning to add them up
Time- to the nearest 5 minutes or minute (to the minute would be EVEN better to prepare them for 3rd!)
Below you will find some parent tips to support 2nd grade math and some FUN ideas you can do as a family.

ATTENTION KINDERGARTEN, C1, AND C2!
Hoops for Heart kicks off this week at PRES! Last year, we raised over $5000 for the American Heart Association and came in 14th out of over 100 schools in our region! This year, we want to do even better. So, C-K, C1, and C2 parents are asked to register their C-K, C1, or C2 Learner online at heart.org/jump. Donations will be done online so the sooner your child registers, the sooner they can start collecting donations and earning prizes!
