We are off and running in our second grade classroom! It has been a challenge to shift from beach time to school time with the hot weather we have had, but slowly and surely we are getting into a routine. Our class is spending time focusing on the parts of our daily reading workshop. Children are working on building stamina reading "just right" books and learning to select these books at their instructional level.
In math we are reviewing place value and reading and writing 2 digit numbers. Practice at home of math facts to 20 will help your child in their daily math lessons at school.
The first unit on Fundations will focus on digraphs.
Homework will start the week of September 19. Please be on the lookout for an upcoming notice in your child's STAR binder that explains homework procedures for the year.
I look forward to seeing all of you at Open House on Thursday, September 22!
