What's New in C2

August 11 - August 18

A Great Beginning

Parents, we have truly enjoyed getting to know your children this past week and a half. Each day brings with it a new excitement and hope for what all this year will hold. Thank you for entrusting us with your precious children! We can already see that our 2nd grade year is off to a terrific start.

Curriculum Corner

Literacy

The first 3-4 weeks of school are usually spent getting to know your child as a reader and a writer. These first 7 days have been spent doing preliminary assessments to give us baseline information for the year.


These may include, but are not limited to:

* Beginning of the year writing assessment

* Spelling/phonics assessment

* Sight word recognition

* Reading comprehension

* Oral reading fluency assessment


Along with beginning of the year assessments, the learners have listened to many different enriching pieces of children's literature that build community and set a positive tone for the year.

Math

The first week of math is all about setting a purpose and using materials appropriately. We've been learning what math is all about and what your child hopes to learn in math this year. We've also learned the difference between toys and math tools. Learners have practiced working with various math tools and determined their appropriate uses.

Starting this week, your child is building their math brain through the use of number talks. They are learning how to use mental math to complete various computations with their peers. Want to learn more about number talks? Click here to read on.

Also this week, children have been meeting with their lead learner in some version of a morning meeting that involves a math routine to help them review 2nd grade math standards on a daily basis. These include place value, time, coins, adding/subtracting, etc.

* Note: beginning of the year math assessment will take place in the next 2 weeks.


Upcoming math standards:

2.OA.3 I can tell if an number is odd or even.


Video to practice this standard


2.MD.9 I can display and analyze measurement data.


2.MD.10 I can show data on a picture graph and a bar graph. I can analyze data in a bar graph.
