What's New in C2?
We will be learning about folktales beginning with fables. These include stories such as The Tortoise and The Hare, The Lion and The Mouse, and The Ant and The Grasshopper. Our focus through teaching these fables is for learners to be able to recount/retell the fable to determine their central message or moral.
We will continue our study of folktales by reading fairy tales, tall tales, and American legends.
We are working on our Dolch sight words in second grade. Your child has been assessed on these words and we will be learning the second grade list of words this year. Practice at home is always encouraged! If you are looking for some resources to work with your chiild on their sight words, check these out:
2.NBT.1a- 100 can be thought of as a bundle of ten tens called a "hundred"
2.NBT.3- Read and write numbers to 1000 using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.
2.NBT.4- Compare two three digit numbers on meanings of the hundreds, tens, and ones digits, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies.2 By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
