Welcome to Second Grade
First Grading Period Priority Standards

2.RL.2.1   Ask and answer question (Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?) to demonstrate understanding of main idea and key details in a text.  


2.CA.5  Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangualar arrays with up to 5 rows and up to 5 columns, write an equation to express the total as a sum of equal groups.  


2.CA.2  The student will be able to solve real-world problems involving addition and subtraction within 100 in situations of adding to , taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all parts of the addition or subraction problem.  

 Our spelling/phonics focus this week is the ph, ch, tch digraphs.  We will practice with words such as:

phone, catch, each, patch, sandwich, touch, match, graph, pitch


We use these words in sentences frequently and review the previous week's phonics skills.  





We are finishing Unit 1 and beginnig Unit 2.  Yay!  Most of us agree that this "different" math is getting easier.  TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN UNIT 2, ADDING 2 DIGIT NUMBERS, YOU NEED TO KNOW YOUR BASIC FACTS!


Monday through Thursday children will bring a practice math paper home.  Please help them as they learn to express their thoughts to work math problems.  

On Monday and Wednesday evenings practice flashcards.  As children pass a level they will receive the next level of flashcards.  Knowing these basic facts will make our problem solving a little easier.  

We have learned about short vowels, long vowels made by adding e, and consonant blends.  Please continue to review these spelling patterns as we add more.

In addition, remember that our sentences that are dictated contain review words from our other phonics patterns.  


We will learn about the six traits of writing :  Ideas, voice, word choice, conventions, sentence fluency, and organization.  We will work on improving our writing through these areas all year. 

Children should be writing complete sentences every time now.  Capital letters and punctuation should come naturally as they write.  

This week we are reviewing writing a persuasive paragraph.  


Vivid Vocabulary

We will be adding new challenging vocabulary words each week.  We discuss them in class and hopefully the children use them at home. 

dainty     pounce     generous     rambunctious     inquire     clench     monotone     attire     spectator     omit     brim
