Reading: Students will have the opportunity to read a variety of fables. With each story the students read they need to be able to identify the moral or lesson. They also need to be able to identify story elements of each fable (characters, setting, beginning, middle, and end, lesson).
Here are a few sites where students can listen to different fables: http://pbskids.org/lions/stories/
Math: Students will take their learning of even and odd numbers to working with arrays. An array is an arrangements of objects in rows and columns. Students will use the arrays to develop the foundation skills of multiplication using repeated addition.
Here is a video that helps explain: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uG_LqO1opQU
Students do not need to know their multiplication facts at this time but you may want to start practicing over the summer to get ready for third grade. Multiplication is the first thing 3rd graders learn in math.
