2nd Grade Newsletter
September 14th - 18th
We will be discussing habits of great readers. They reread, ask themselves questions, and make connections to name just a few.
We will also be practicing the steps for the writing process. Prewrite, draft, revise, edit, publish.
*Reading Assessments began this week*
In math we will continue with Module 1 of Stepping Stones. In this module we will focus on the following:
- Reading, writing, comparing, and ordering two-digit numbers
- Defining and identifying odd and even numbers
- Sorting data in different ways
- Interpreting and constructing one-to-one picture graphs
More specifically this week will be about finding two-digit numbers on a number line and comparing two digit numbers on a number line
Curriculum night is Tuesday, September 15th 5:00pm - 6:30pm
