What's Happening in 2nd?


***Second Grade Wish List***

-Clean socks (to use as mini whiteboard erasers)


Reading
We are getting ready to dive into our second unit! This unit will focus on the characters in our stories. We will be:
  • Studying characters before, during, and after reading, 
  • Getting to know characters -  even when it is hard, and
  • Studying how characters change and grow.
Math
We have launched into the main focus of second-grade math; adding and subtracting! During the next few units, we will learn multiple strategies to help all types of learners solve equations. Keep in mind that we are NOT looking for students to be proficient in every strategy, but to have a "toolkit" of a couple that will work for them!

Writing
We have begun our unit on narrative writing! We have explored several mentor texts, and are trying out the craft moves that those authors use in our own writing. We will have an Author's Celebration coming up in the month of November, so keep a look out for more information!

Social Studies
Our first social studies unit takes a look at the different systems that surround us. We will focus on social systems, and think about what we can do to make our classroom run smoothly!
