Reading Update by: Maverick

Today we learned to ask questions while we read non-fiction books.  We learned to stick sticky notes down on the page and then write the question we had or what we were thinking.


I was reading about snakes and what they eat. I learned that they like to eat small animals like mice and chipmunks. I made the sticky note because I was surprised that snakes only eat 30 meals a year.

Math Update

Today we started a new unit in math centered around measuring and geometry.   This morning we were able to use a centimeter ruler to measure objects around the room and practice drawing line segments.   We will also be exploring 2D and 3D Shapes as well as solving for the perimeter of a shape.  Be on the lookout for shapes around on the house and in the community.  Below please find the most recent parent letter.


Writing Update

Our second grade writers celebrated this past Thursday by sharing with Mrs. Greenlund’s class all of the “craft” that they are using in their stories.   We also noticed what our classmates were doing in their stories.   The children have strived to add many “crafts” into their personal narratives;   strong lead (talking, sound effect or snapshot), details, adjectives, adverbs, similes, show not tell, dialogue and story ending.    They have all grown so much as writers!  I am beyond proud of all of their hard work this unit!  We will begin a study of non fiction writing after the holiday break.

Reading Update

Today we wrapped up our Character Study unit by putting on Reader’s Theater plays.  The children worked hard all week preparing for their plays by dividing parts, practicing their lines and then stepping into the character’s shoes to bring them life.  Beyond proud of all of their hard work and creativity.   

Math Update

Here is a copy of the current parent letter for math.   We are exploring two digit addition.  Our second graders will be learning  methods of adding numbers together that may look different from how you and I learned.   Please take a few moments to look over the letter below :):
