Welcome to ELA in Second Grade where....
LEARNING IS PARADISE
Welcome to 2nd Grade - a pivotal year where we move from LEARNing to READ to READing to LEARN! This website is designed to be a useful tool for families. Each week the website will be updated with information relating to academics, dates to remember and links that can be accessed for your child to practice our current phonics skills among other useful tools. I encourage you to navigate through the tabs at the top of this page to gain some insight into the fun and engaging year that your child will experience in second grade!
WEEK OF November 13th - 17th
This week we will read and spell VCe (vowel - consonant + e) one syllable words with blends and digraphs. The high frequency words for this unit are place, whole, and whose. Your child can find more opportunities for practice with these words by clicking on the link (right click on the green words): ONE SYLLABLE VCE WORDS WITH BLENDS AND DIGRAPHS. Our unit assessment will be on Monday of next week.
This week our readers will focus on fables. We will discover the elements of fables and read several fables to identify the elements.
This week the authors in our classroom we will learn to apply the many capitalization rules in our writing.
This week the mathematicians will continue to learn about geometry concepts. We will learn the attributes of a cube. Students will also understand the difference between columns and rows and how to partition a rectangle and a circle into equal parts.
MATH FACTS: We have started our fact fluency check ups. Students are beginning to "Sail Through the Facts" as they work to master their addition and subtraction facts through 20. Students will be given a check up every Tuesday and Friday to help them progress and ensure mastery. How can YOU HELP? PLEASE have your student log on to Xtra Math nightly. Your child should spend 10 minutes max. You may also practice their fact triangles with them at home if you notice that their progress on Xtra Math is weak. YOU CAN LEARN MORE by clicking on the "MATH" tab at the top of this page. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
This week our geographers will take a closer look at the elements of a map. We will focus on the compass rose and a map key.
