2nd Grade News!
What's happening in 2nd grade?
Space Reading is coming to an end...
-For the lunch, here are some OPTIONAL ideas:
-a lunch and a drink-or the school lunch
-Voracious Reading...ask your child what it means to be a "voracious reader" and what it helps them with...
-Reading Wreath-each child will make a "reading wreath" to encourage, and keep track of, their voracious reading.
-Later in the week, we will focus on making connections: text-to-self, text-to-text, text-to-world
-we started our math switch today
-The two math standards we will focus on are:
***Able to recognize and identify the values of dollars, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies
***Accurately add coin combinations up to $1.00
-Looking forward to reviewing our math skills with holiday activities and projects
-We will start our "Gingerbread House For Sale" Writing Project! The children will use descriptive writing (adjectives) to convince someone to buy their gingerbread house. This has been a favorite winter activity in 2nd grade!
-COMING HOME SOON will be an "At-Home" Gingerbread Project. Be on the look out for a packet with all the information you need to complete this project. Contact your child's teacher if you have any questions!
