What's Happening in 2nd Grade


Where is the year going? 


This year for our in class Thanksgiving activity, we will be making a Thanksgiving Friendship Trail Mix.  We did this last year and the kids loved it! This trail mix is similar to the “Stone Soup” they make in kindergarten. When everyone comes together and contributes something it will create something big that everyone can enjoy. On Thursday 11/8 I will send home a sandwich baggy in student’s homework folders, please use this baggy and fill it half way with the item that you are assigned and send it back to school no later than Tuesday 11/13! Thank you for your help with this fun project!


Reading and Writing

We have begun our non-fiction units in reading and writing.   Students will learn about all of the different text features, such as: headings, titles, captions, table of contents, diagrams, etc.  We will read a variety of non-fiction books and jot down facts that we’ve learned and questions we may have about the topic on sticky notes as we read.  


Students will take the knowledge that they’ve learned from their reading to create non-fiction “All About” books.  They will have a cover page, dedication page, table of contents, and practice using such text features as labels and diagrams in their writing.  They will also be working with a partner to create a non-fiction poster on a topic of their choice.



In module 4 we are working on addition and subtraction within 200. In this module we begin regrouping, or as we called it, borrowing and carrying. I have shown the kids extra tools that are on the class homework website.  There are math fact practice links as well as manipulative tools: base ten blocks, place value disks, ten frames and pattern blocks.
