Second Grade Reading News
Our focus will now shift to long vowel sounds (the vowel will say its name). Students will practice reading words that have a silent e on the end. They will learn that the silent e stays quiet so the other vowel can say its' name. We are also learning long vowel teams. When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking. We will start with long vowel patterns for a and move onto long vowel patterns for e after the new year.
Readers look for the vowel clue when reading unknown words!

In December, we will be reading fables and folktales to identify the message or lesson learned in the story. Students will be asked to compare two versions of the same tale to identify similarities and differences.
