Across the Subjects

Reading-

        We jumped right into our Wonders reading series and are quickly learning the expectations of being a second grader. Last week the children completed their first second grade Wonders assessment. This assessment was done whole group and will not count as a grade. I will place your child’s test in their daily folder. As you look over this assessment, you will notice that there are a lot of differences between this assessment and the Wonders assessments from first grade. This year your child will be reading two different stories and answering ten comprehension/skill questions. Your child will also being answering a short response question, where they may be asked to compare and contrast the two stories. The written response question will not be graded until January. I will be modeling and guiding the written response with your child until then.

 

Math-

We started chapter 1 in Go Math last week. This chapter centers around number concepts. Today we learned how to use expanded form. I will send (2-3) math practice sheets for homework weekly starting in September. Please look over your child’s homework and remind them to put it back in their folder.

Social Studies-

Continue our unit on map skills.

 

Too Many Happy Days,

Ms. Brittle
