Topics Being Taught In Class

READING: In this unit, we are working on reading with fluency, stamina, and comprehension. We then will move into working on figuring out hard words when reading. Finally, we will work on using what we have learned to think more critically about what we are reading.

MATH: In this module, we are working on place value strategies. Students will learn how to write numbers on a place value chart, in standard form, expanded form, and unit form. We will also practice relating place value to money.

WRITING: In this narrative unit, we begin by working on stretching out and zooming in on small moments. Students work on crafting powerful beginnings and endings. Students will use other authors as inspiration for their own writing. Finally, students will make reading and writing connections to apply what they notice in books they read to their writing.

PHONICS: We begin phonics by reviewing concepts taught in first grade. We will review phonics rules and high frequency words. We then focus on how to spell "troublemaker words" and when to use punctuation in our writing. We then will explore homophones. Finally, we will focus on spelling patterns and using rhyming to help with spelling.

SCIENCE: Both in class and in the science lab, students are learning about different types of materials (solid, liquid, gas) and their properties.
