Second Grade News
Miss Zygiel's Class
In Math, we have been looking at Fact Families or Math Mountains. We are able to use all of the strategies that we practiced at the beginning of the year to help us solve the problems.
In Social Studies, we used cardinal directions to help us find numbers. We also reviewed our continents and the difference between maps and globes.
During Daily 5, we started a new choice listening to reading. We continue to practice independence during this time.
We will be working in our Math Expressions book. We will be finding missing addends and and looking at story problems. Students will be bringing home flashcards to practice at night. This is to improve fact fluency so that they will know the facts quickly. Thank you for getting math homework done and turned in. We will not have homework overnight but when we do have homework I appreciate it being turned in the next day.
We will be finishing our Map and Globe Unit with group presentations.
We will be continuing our personal narrative unit focusing on details and how to hook a reader. We will also be creating a writing project for families to check out at parent teacher conferences so keep a look out for that!
We are in the swing of our Daily 5 rotations. Students will be continuing to bring home reading bags. They will be bringing home books that we have read together in reading groups. Read together and ask questions. In their reading folders I included a sheet of questions or things to talk about when reading.
