What's On in Grade 2 FI in March and April?

Language

Reading:

In reading, we are working on ensuring that we have thorough answers for comprehension questions and that answers are written in complete sentences.


Writing:

In writing, the students are continuing to look at punctuation, and how to use it appropriately. We have also been spending some time exploring the reading/writing connection and how punctuation is used to help us with comprehension.

Math

We are finishing up our unit on 2-digit addition and subtraction, with and without regrouping. We've spent quite a bit of time on finding strategies that work for each individual to solve problems independently. Some are finding paper/pencil method is the easiest, while others use mental strategies, manipulatives, and hundreds charts.

We will be beginning a unit on money next week, focusing on counting money amounts to $1.00 (100 cents), making change, and adding/subtracting money amounts in problems.


The students are really enjoying the math games that they have been playing on Prodigy. If your child has misplaced his/her login and password, please let me know in the agenda and I will send it again.

Homework Helpers

Preparing shopping lists from advertised prices can help children with mental math, estimation, and counting money.
