We’re excited to help your child grow and learn in second grade!  We’ll cover many topics this year in the areas of reading, math, writing, vocabulary, science and social studies.  It’s always amazing to see the growth made by each student.  We believe in giving choices and using positive reinforcements.  It is our desire to create an environment where each student will feel safe to explore and learn from their mistakes.  Students are encouraged to follow the school expectations of PRIDE. (Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Dependability, Empathy) 

We look forward to working with our families to help make this the best year ever!

In math, we are continuing our work on place value. We are learning how to identify numbers in different forms such as unit form, word form, and expanded form. In class, we are using place value disks and we are working on recognizing when we
need to change 10 ones for 1 ten, 10 tens for 1 hundred, and 10 hundred for 1 thousand. We also are working on comparing numbers to recognize when three-digit numbers are greater than, less than or equal to each other. We will finish this unit by skip-count up and skip-count down by 1s, 10s, 100s.


Reading classes for the 1st quarter are wrapping up. It has been amazing seeing all of the growth our students have made! Please keep encouraging your second grader to read 20 minutes per night. This will continue to improve their fluency and comprehension of text.


In writing, we are finishing up our first writing unit and working into our second focus area. The first focus was all about us. The second unit moves into story writing about animals.


Lastly, just a few reminders for you, Picture Day will be October 5th.Don’t forget to mark your parent-teacher conferences on your calendar and be sure to look for more information coming home from your child’s teacher for the Fall Festival.
