Language Arts-Reading

Reading Focus:

  • We will be starting our next unit: Peopel who make a difference
  • We will also be continuing our other two research projects
  • People who make a difference: students will work independently and will study a person who has impacted our word and write a report about him/her
  • Animal Life Cycles: Students will work in pairs to study the life cycles of an animal and create individual projects.


This Week:

  • We will be taking a break from a phonics rule this week and will be revisiting our study of syllabication
  • Previous rules that we have studied: breaking up the twins (lit-tle), break between two consonants (win-dow), break off prefix or suffix (pre-test and quick-ly) and open syllable (o-pen).
  • Rules we are focusing on this week: r-controlled vowels: break the word into syllables after the r-controlled vowel and r (tur-key) and words with -le: break the word into syllables before the consonant -le (ea-gle, noo-dle)
  • Remember...If your child needs extra practice, there are lots of resources on our website.


  • We will be continuing our new unit: Geometry
  • Focus of the week: Nets. A net is a two dimensional figure that can be folded into a three dimensional object. Extra practice can be found at https://illuminations.nctm.org/activity.aspx?id=3544
  • Make sure you are looking for the Symbaloo on the 2nd grade website if your student needs additional practice.
