Our next class library checkout day will be Tuesday, January 5th, but remember, your child may bring his/her books back at anytime. We will find a time for him/her to visit the library individually to get new books!
We are Learning...
We will continue to study nonfiction texts. We will be learning how to gather information from informational texts so that we can become experts on a topic. We will be comparing and contrasting different books on the same topic as we read.
We will begin our new topic on subtraction to 100 with and without regrouping.
We will begin a new unit on nonfiction writing texts. Students will understand the structure of explanatory and informational texts. They will learn how to write so that they can teach others.
We will begin a new topic on states of matter. Students will be studying the properties of liquids and gases. During this study we will be using balloons to help with experiments. Please let me know if your child has a latex allergy so we can plan accordingly!
Word study in 2nd grade includes spelling, phonics, and vocabulary development. After break we will be focusing on 13 new vocabulary words. Those words are: state, property, solid, liquid, gas, mixture, solution, reaction, evaporation, matter, mass, condensation and dissolve!
