2nd Grade Adventures

In order to promote high attendance, we will be spelling out the word ATTENDANCE. Each day that our class has 100% attendance a letter will be added. When the whole word is spelled out, we will celebrate. We will also have a school wide prize for the grade level with the highest attendance. Please help us reach our goal in 2nd grade!

Academics

ELAR: This weeks reading theme is finding your way in a new place. We will read several stories and students will discuss character changes and practice making connections to the story.

Math: This week students will explain the place value of digits and review the different ways to write a number up to 1,200.

Science: We will collect, record and compare information.

Social Studies: Students will practice reading maps, using a map key, compass rose and a map scale.

Students worked hard to write and display numbers in different ways!

Family Focus

This year we are taking more of a family focused approach to homework. We believe that spending quality family time is vital in the success of your student. We will provide family friendly, engaging homework activities and assignments. We would love if you would send us pictures of these activities and share them with us.


This weeks Family focus:

Have discussions about the importance of being kind. Here are 2 important things to ask your child after school each day:

-Tell me about someone being nice to you.

-Tell me about how you were nice to someone else.
