October News

We are thrilled to have our new teacher, Ms. Elder on board! All second grade teachers will be scheduling conferences to meet the teachers and update you on your child’s progress.

Our field trip to Kravis is Thursday October 22!! 🙂 🙂

In reading, we are meeting our characters. We have been using sticky notes to “spy” on them, what they are doing, saying, and feeling. We are using this to help us figure out how our characters solve the problems they are faced with.

In writing, we are using some of our favorite books and mentor texts to emulate the author’s writing style. We are working on unfreezing our characters, adding more details, and leaving the reader with a powerful ending.

In science, we are getting our hands on many activities and experiments about matter and the properties of matter.

In math, we are adding three numbers together in preparation for adding three digit numbers. Please continue to practice counting patterns from 0-1,000 (2s, 5s, 10s). You can also practice math facts 0-20 to build your child’s fact fluency.

Some great at home tech resources:
