2nd Grade News

Hey all! Hope you have had a great week!  We sure have!  This week in the Friday folders, we have sent home sign-ups for parent teacher conferences for 2nd grade.  Please return those by Friday of next week.  As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.   

Homework (Both Classes)

Weekend Homework: One spelling practice and two reading logs.  

Daily Homework: One spelling practice and one reading log (15 minutes of reading and at least 3 sentences about the story)

Math   

We are getting into subtraction!  We will be working on subtracting 3 digit numbers with regrouping (borrowing) next week.  

Reading

Reading groups are going really well!  One strategy that we are really pushing with the kids is to focus on the beginning and ending sounds of words.  They tend to sound out the beginning and guess at the end of the word instead of seeing it all the way through.  This will continue to be a focus next week.     

Science

Next week we will be continuing our study on properties of matter: form and function.  The students will be exploring how form and function of different nature-made object influence engineers and inventors with man-made objects.  We will also get into the parts of flowers and pollination.  

Writing

We are continuing our scientific writing unit on how to write a lab report.  Next week, our focus will be on scientific procedures and creating our own science experiments to write about based on making small changes from our class investigation.  We are excited to see what the kids come up with!
