Curriculum Counts

READING

We have enjoyed reading various versions of The Three Little Pigs to identify and compare elements of fairy tales. Now, we are working on writing summaries!

MATH

We are moving into adding and subtracting within the 1000s. Please continue to work on Xtramath at home.

HANDWRITING

Students have been working on their letters in cursive. We are emphasizing correct grips, letter formation, and spacing.

SCIENCE

In science we will continue learning about matter. The three states of matter are: gas, liquid, and solid. See how many examples of each you can find in your home. We will do experiments as we investigate the different properties of matter.

Social Studies

We will be working on an economy unit with volunteers in the community!

One of the 2nd Grade State Standards in Math is relating problem situations to number sentences involving addition and subtraction.

At home idea: At the store have your child estimate the total cost of items by using addition and the amount of change by using

subtraction.
