WOW! I can’t believe how fast the first week of school flew by. We spent lots of time learning rules, procedures, and routines. I am impressed with how fast these second graders are getting back in the groove of school.

Math: This year our classroom has Chromebooks for every student to use.  We have been practicing logging on and navigating.  We started Module 1: Sums and Differences to 100 this week.  Since I meet with small groups during math, some of the worksheets that go home will not have all the problems done.  This in not homework.  You are more than welcome to practice these problems with you child, but you don’t have to turn them back in. 

LanguageWe read the books Enemy Pie and Chrysanthemum. We used these two books to help us practice capitalization. Your child should be able to identify the 8 items we discussed that require a capital letter which are names of people and pets, first word in a sentence, the word “I”, days of the week, months of the year, special places, and titles of people (like Dr. and Mrs.).

Writing Workshop: Students spent the week organizing their writing binders and getting prepared for writing workshop. To help them when generating writing ideas, they completed a heart map of the things they love.

Reading Workshop: Students learned all about reading logs and how they will work in our second grade classroom. We are still establishing routines and procedures. I am impressed with how hard they are trying. We also spent some time reviewing story elements including characters and setting.
