Across the Subjects
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.
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.
Continue our unit on map skills.
Too Many Happy Days,
