Dear Families,

Here's a quick update to let you know what we been doing in second grade. Last week was a busy week with a lot of special activities.

On Wednesday, meteorologist Jason Brewer came to talk to the second grade about weather. We have been learning about air and weather in the classroom and recently starting learning about the water cycle.

On Friday, Anne Johnson worked with our classroom in the garden. We harvested some of the vegetables planted last spring!

Dear Families,

Here is a quick update to let you know what we have been up to in second grade.

Reading: Students have learned how our classroom library is organized so that they can choose books to keep in their chair pockets for independent reading time. They are doing a great job choosing "just right" books that they enjoy and that will help them practice their reading. 

Writing: We are reading to write. We have read books by published authors to discover what writers write about and how they make their stories interesting. We will try some of these techniques as we write stories from our own lives. We have already tried to add feelings to our stories.


Math: We have been identifying odd and even numbers and explaining how we know that a number is even or odd. We've also been reviewing doubles facts such as 2 + 2, 3 + 3, 4 + 4,...and using these facts to help us solve doubles +/- 1 facts.

or 8 + 8 = 16    16 - 1 = 15

We also have been using our tens facts such as 9 + 1, 8 + 2, 7 + 3, .... to help us solve harder facts. This is called the Make 10 Strategy.
