I hope everyone had a wonderful spring break! From talking to the kids yesterday it sure sounds like everyone did! :) We have a little over 6 weeks left! We will continue working very hard to make sure everyone is ready for 3rd grade. Please make sure you are encouraging your child to do their best each and every day!
These are the things we will be covering this month:
Math: line Plots, time, money, and multiplication. Multiplication will fall over into May. The students love the multiplication unit! In 2nd grade, they get the foundation for multiplication, so we will not be learning all of the multiplication facts just getting an understanding of multiplication. However, PLEASE make sure you are practicing addition and subtraction math facts with your child weekly!! These are so important and they will definitely need to know them fluently for 3rd grade! We will begin doing timed test very soon.
Reading: We will continue comparing and contrasting Fairy Tales. We will also continue working on summarizing information, inferring, visualizing, and giving recommendations.
Writing: We have begun a poetry unit! The students are really enjoying this! I have been amazed by how creative they are. Ask them about their "poet eyes"! :) Be on the lookout for some of their poems coming home soon!
Science: Will we be beginning our unit on animal life cycles! As part of this unit we will be raising Painted Lady Butterflies in the classroom. Students will have a chance to see larvae turn into caterpillars and then butterflies.
