2nd Grade News!

Happy Spring! Here are some upcoming events...

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!!!

We are in need of soup can donations for our Recycling Research Project...any donations are welcome. The students have been doing collaborative research on what it means to be "green." With these recycled items, they will be working in teams to create and build birdhouses which will be displayed outside our school! As another part of this project, the students will be acting in small skits which will be recorded to teach and will be viewed by our school community to teach ways to conserve our resources.

Curriculum Updates

Math-This week completes our unit on double-digit subtraction facts within 100. Next week we will flex group for one, and two-step addition and subtraction word problems. Please continue to practice addition and subtraction facts at home. We appreciate your support!

Reading- This week, the children have been working on the skill, "Visualizing." Next week, we will focus on how to be a fluent reader. This will help prepare for our "Fractured Fairy Tale Theater" Unit coming soon.

Social Studies-We are continuing our study on Government. More specifically, we are focusing on elected leaders within a community, state and country. The students are also learning about what it means to be a good citizen.

Writing- Up next, the children will be practicing narrative writing. For this style of writing in second grade, they focus on one main event using time-order transition words and phrases.
