Second grade continues to learn cool things. We have planted our Wisconsin Fast Plants and are currently observing their growth and development. We are enjoying learning all about our country. You would be amazed at the cool math strategies we are learning! We are getting better at number sense and doing math in our heads. Second grade is great!
Third grade has been working so hard this month! In Reading, we will continue to build our comprehension skills with strategies, such as Asking Questions, Visualizing, Clarifying, Making Connections, Predicting, and Summarizing. We will also be working on skills, such as Fact and Opinion, Main Idea and Details, Compare and Contrast, Cause and Effect, Sequence, and Classify and Categorize. We will be focusing on Writing to Inform in Writing. Third grade is building on Multiplication and Division skills in Math. Please continue to read with your student each night, as well as study the skills on the Weekly Reading Newsletter. Chromebooks are being sent home so that students have the opportunity to work on skills/assignments for extra practice. Please charge these each night and return to school each day. Thank you so much for your help with this. If you need anything, please reach out to us on our communication platform, Class Dojo.
