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



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


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.


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.

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