2nd Grade in Room C2

In Math this week, we will finish Module 7 which presents an opportunity for students to practice addition and subtraction strategies within 100 and problem-solving skills as they learn to work with various types of units within the contexts of length, money, and data. Students represent categorical and measurement data using picture graphs, bar graphs, and line plots. They revisit measuring and estimating length from Module 2 but now use both metric and customary units.

In Language Arts, we will continue our ninth unit of study, “Buyers and Sellers.” In this unit, your child will be introduced to elementary concepts in economics. For example, we’ll be learning about all the steps that are needed to produce everyday objects like a baseball bat or pizza box. We’ll also read about farmers’ markets and the notion of bartering. In addition, your child will meet characters who go into business and yet eat away most of their profits. Our selections include several procedural and informational social studies texts along with folktales, poems, fantasy, and realistic fiction. “Buyers and Sellers” is an interesting unit about a subject close to our lives, and I hope it sparks some lively discussions at home.

In Language Arts, we will also begin our study of Fairy Tales in which we will read a variety of Fairy Tales, compare characters, books, tales, etc.

LIBRARY - Library books are due tomorrow. We will not be visiting the library anymore this year. Please make sure your child has their books turned in. Thanks!
