Second Grade

Weekly Happenings

The Cookie Dough Fundraiser is being extended until Feb. 1st. Students can sell all weekend and return the packet on Monday.


We finished our unit on Subtraction today. It included subtraction within 1000 and story problems within 100. The kids worked extremely hard on this target; it was a tough one! We will continue to practice at school throughout our other units. However, extra practice at home with subtraction would benefit the kids. It's a skill we will need continual practice on.
