SUPER JOB SHARING COMMUNITY PROJECTS!
In Chapter 2, we will focus on skip counting and recognizing patterns to add and subtract. Math homework will give practice of similar problems taught at school. Addition Fact Quizzes will start on Thursday's. Students will answer addition 2 facts for 2 minutes this week. (0+2, 1+2, 2+2, etc...up to 12+2) If they miss more than two problems, then they will try again the following week. If they miss 2 or less, they will move on to the addition 3 facts. All second graders will learn facts by heart this year.

In Word Study, we continue to study high frequency words and spelling patterns. Each Monday a list will come home. Students will select from the Homework Menu a way to practice of their choice each night. Spelling tests will be on Fridays. This week we will study -ar and -or vowel patterns.
Extra Spelling Game: Spin and Spell
In writing, students will brainstorm a list of personal narrative topics and select one to develop. They will draft, edit and revise before publishing their narrative. Students will share in the Author's Chair when their writing is complete.
Super job with Community Projects! Students will keep their projects at school for a little while before bringing them home. The class enjoyed learning about the many interesting people and places in our community.
