I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year. I am excited to be back at school. We have a lot of fun learning to do this Winter and Spring in Second Grade.
Famous Person Unit
We will be starting our Famous Person/ Biography Unit today (actually we started with a preview the week before the break). Each student will choose a person from history to study and then write a report. We will then assemble the reports into a movie for History Night. It is a great project, the students learn a ton about historical figures and what it takes to make a difference in our world. We will begin this week with writing together about Harriett Tubman.
We will start the week with a quick review of Addition with Regrouping. By the end of this week we will begin Subtraction with Regrouping. The students will spend the next couple of months mastering addition and subtraction and using it in different ways. This will lay the foundation for future success in mathematics.
Time to get back in those homework routines. Make sure that students are reading AR Books for 20 minutes each night. Check reading logs to make sure they are taking quizzes on finished books. Student have spelling, math and writing homework this week. Homework packet is due Friday.
