Welcome Back Parents & Families!
We are stoked to be starting second grade with each of you!
Our first reading and writing units will be focused on launching the workshop. The workshop model gives your child more time to practice skills learned independently at their own level and pace. During the workshop, we are able to pull small groups to provide even more differentiated instruction. It is crucial that your child is reading and responding in their reading log at home every day.
In math, we are learning all about place value, number sense, and counting patterns. You can practice skills at home on V Math.
Our science unit opens with an overview of science inquiry skills and tools used by scientists. Now that Cypress Trails is a STEM school, we are proudly spending time learning about how these science skills are used in careers. These second grader are setting goals and preparing for a very stellar future!
Our social studies goals include learning and applying rules to be role model citizens within our classes, school, and community. You can help at home by discussing what it means to be a role model community member.
Thank you to all of you who attended meet the teacher and brought in the supplies. Our next big even will be Open House/Curriculum Night in September – look for more details in the future!
