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.

Social Studies

We will begin a 3 week study of government


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


In science we will be focusing on different forms of measurement. Students will be given a variety of tasks where they are using both standard and nonstandard forms of measurement.
