What's up in Second Grade
In math we have been working on many different addition strategies as well as subtraction number stories. We have been playing addition fact games and some of us are still working on our number scrolls.
In reading we read, The Strongest One. This is a folktale play. We worked on telling the difference between realism and fantasy as well as giving evidence from the text to support our answer. We practiced consonant digraphs in spelling and reviewed adding inflections.
Playing math fact games with partners really helps build our fact fluency.
We have been playing addition top it and beat the calculator this week.
We made posters to advertise energy conservation.
Spelling hints: Have your child use the computer to practice typing their spelling words.
