Welcome to 2nd Grade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

2nd Grade Academics

Reading:

We will be discussing characterization, setting, sequence, and main idea of a story as well as improving our reading vocabularies through our stories in the Journeys reader and our A.R. books.  Reading is so important!!!!  Be sure to read for at least 20 minutes every night for A.R. and be ready to take AR tests for bug bucks!  We are also keeping track of days we read and recording them on our Book-It calendars to earn monthly free Pizza Hut pizzas starting in October!

 

Grammar and Writing:

We are working on learning about subjects, predicates, nouns, and verbs of a sentence.  We are using these skills to put together complete sentences using correct punctuation and capitalization.  We will work on putting these sentences together to form a descriptive paragraph and then write a biography report.

 

Spelling:

Our phonetic spelling lists help us to learn a variety of phonics rules.  Please study these words for the postest at the end of each week!!

 

Math:

Common Core Standards will be implemented in our math this year with our new series GO MATH.  Chaprters 1 and 2 are exploring the many different ways to read and write numbers to 1000.  Chapters 3, 4, and 5 are working with basic facts through story problems and 2-digit addition and subtraction.  We are working very hard to master all of the math standards!

We are also mastering addition mathfacts through our 1 1/2 minute timed tests.  Our goal is to master ALL addition and subtraction facts to 18 by the end of the year!! 

 

Science:

We have 5 units that we discuss throughout the year:  Interactions of Living Things, Light and Color, Earth Through Time, Solids, Liquids, and Gases, and What Makes Me Sick.
