Hello Families!

Here is a copy of this week's homework.

Addition, Literacy Night

Hi Families!

Here is a PDF of this week's homework.

This Thursday is the 2nd Grade Literacy Night. Our students will be providing a bit of entertainment with music and song. Following this, we will reconvene to the classroom for a short presentation as well as a chance to look at books the students have created.

This is Thursday, February 23, at 6 PM, in the gym.

We are getting into addition right now. Please feel free to practice however you'd like with your students.

This past week's reading minutes were 4,090!  Good job, readers and their families!

St. Valentine's Day is coming up next week. We will hold a celebration that afternoon. I sent home in the homework packets a list of the students' names in the class. If you're keeping it simple, we have 29 students. Students are welcome to create a container to receive Valentines and bring those on the 14th!

In math, we're working on some addition strategies for bigger numbers. It's a bit of a tricky concept, so we're taking it slow. I did not anticipate that (though the kids are coming along awesomely) so we will be reworking last week's homework in class as we get more comfortable with the strategies.

Last week, the students created books of folktales they wrote themselves. These and other books will be presented on Literacy Night (February 23rd) so please come if you can! 6 PM, in the gym.

Those books conclude our focused folklore unit, and now we will be studying nonfiction.

I will be out Wednesday-Monday on a family matter, and because I'm possessive of giving my spelling tests, that test will be Tuesday the 14th.

Math, More Folklore, and Such

Hi families!

I recently finished all the big assessments and our class is looking overall great!

We are still working on  folktales. One of our standards has the students comparing folktales. So this week we have a project where each student will be writing his or her own version of a folktale.

Scholastic book orders will be going out, if you're interested. The link to the online ordering is on the left side of the page. The due date is next Wednesday, the 18th.

We have just powered through a huge unit in math. The test on this will be this Thursday.

If you need homework for this week, here it is!
