Mrs. Lee's Second Grade News

Valley View Elementary

What's Coming?


In reading we will be exploring story elements and focusing on character traits. We will learn how to compare and contrast characters from different books. Each student is now shopping at his/her new reading level and continuing to read just right (easy books with accuracy and comprehension) during independent reading time. Book bags are always available to come home- if you'd like your child to bring a book home and they are not doing so, please let me know and I will remind them of our book bag routine.


We will be taking the Unit 5 test on Monday on money/place value up to 1,000. On Tuesday, we will be exploring sequences and patterns in a few lessons about algebra.

Science & Writing:

In science, we are continuing to learn about the properties of matter.


We will continue to practice cursive- and continue to practice nice printing handwriting!
