This Week In 2nd Grade
Math- We will continue Chapter 1 in our math books. This week we will work on the following: addition using a number line and using addition to solve subraction.
Continue to work on math facts at home, whether it be with a card game, flashcards or an app found on your phone. Being fluent in simple addition math facts will help your student in the upcoming weeks.
Science- This week we will start our Properties of Matter Unit. In this unit we will discuss how we can determine what materials will be best used to solve a problem based on their physical properties.
Reading- Our class has been adapting well to the Read Live program. It is exciting to see them working on their fluency and comprehension.
Social Studies- This week we will be starting our Grandparent Unit! We will start by talking about what things were like for our grandparents and will use timelines to understand how "old" our grandparents really are and to identify how their lives have changed in the past 7 years. In a few weeks, I will be asking each student to interview a grandparent in which they will write a report about. We will be hosting a "Grandparent Day" on October 6 in our class. Stay tuned for more information!
The homework menu will be the same as last week. The kids have been successful in reaching their goal once again! Thank you for encouarging your kids to read and practice math! Remember to return the STAR tracking sheet in folders each Friday. Thanks!
Reading- Highly recommended! 1 star for every 10 minutes of reading. Students should try to read for about 20 minutes each night.
Math- Practice simple addition math facts. The goal is for your student to become fluent in simple math facts so find any game or activity that will allow them to practice.
