What's New This Week?

Language Arts

We will begin our 1st Journeys curriculum lesson in Language Arts. Each Journeys lesson/week has an “Essential Question”. This week it is "Why is the order of events in a story important?" Target skills are sequence of events, short vowels (a, i), and CVC syllable patterns. Our main story selection is Henry & Mudge a realistic fiction story. In writing we will write to narrate and the topic is our Hopes & Dreams for 2nd grade.


This week we will begin our Envisions Math curriculum with Topic 1 Addition & Subtraction. Students will be writing addition and subtraction sentences to model joining and separating groups stories. We will also focus on fact families. Extra practice at home with basic addition and subtraction facts would be great! This link will provide you with some fun practice games located on our class website: http://www.crsd.org/Page/31946

All About Me Posters

This week your child will be coming home with an All About Me poster. In class we discussed that this poster should be completed at home and brought in whenever your child has finished completing the information and decorating it. Once the poster is brought in, your child will share it with our class and have it displayed in the classroom. Please know that this is an optional project. Please return the poster if your child does not wish to participate in this activity. Thank you!


  • Please remind your child to save something in their lunchbox for snack time, we do have snack every afternoon.
  • Please sign your child’s homework book each night. Thank you!
  • Please remember to send in all school forms asap.
