# What's New In C2

## Literacy

Looking ahead, this week our leaners will be focusing on the author's purpose of nonfiction text, as well as 5 W's plus How.

[Identify the main purpose of a text, including what the author wants to answer, explain, or describe.]

[Ask and answer such as who, what, where, when, and why to demonstrating of key details in a text.]

## Cursive

Cursive- We are more than halfway through the year! If you would like to assist your learner with additional practice, please do not hesitate to utilize some of the resources below.

## Math

Looking ahead, we are diving deeper into 2 step word problems. We are focusing on these skills through whole group, small group, and number talks. We will continue to focus on this through next week to ensure that they have true understanding of this standard.

Current standards:

2-OA1 Use addition and subtraction within 100 solve one - and -two step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing unknown number to represent the problem.

Upcoming Standards

2.MD.7 I can write and tell time to the nearest five minutes on an analog or digital clock.

2.MD.7 I can use a.m. and p.m. properly when telling time to the nearest five minutes.

2.MD.8 I can create and solve money words problems using quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies.

Other things you can work on:

Fact Fluency- Use flash cards, Front Row, or you can ask your child various single digit math facts

Money- Knowing the value of each coin, learning to add them up

Time- To the nearest 5 minutes or minute (to the minute would be EVEN better to prepare them for 3rd!)

Regrouping - Knowing when to borrow from the tens place and carry (Addition and Subtraction).

Below you will find some parent tips to support 2nd grade math and some FUN ideas you can do as a family.

## Hoops for Heart

ATTENTION KINDERGARTEN, C1, AND C2!

Hoops for Heart kicks off this week at PRES! Last year, we raised over \$5000 for the American Heart Association and came in 14th out of over 100 schools in our region! This year, we want to do even better. So, C-K, C1, and C2 parents are asked to register their C-K, C1, or C2 Learner online at heart.org/jump. Donations will be done online so the sooner your child registers, the sooner they can start collecting donations and earning prizes!

Additionally, on Thursday, March 1st, we will be celebrating "Oh the Places You'll Go" by wearing our favorite college t-shirt. So be sure to join in the fun!
