Second Grade News: April 2019

2nd Grade Curriculum

Reading: We are using our 2nd grade reading skills to compare and contrast books in our current reading unit. We are starting by reading different versions of fairy tales to compare and contrast the characters, setting, plot, and lesson in the story. 

Writing: We are writing opinion pieces to share how we feel about different books, restaurants, stores, and even school field trips! We can’t wait to tell you what we’re thinking.

Math: We are using our understanding of numbers to learn more about place value. We are using this to help us add and subtract numbers all the way to 1,000!

Social Studies: We are learning about different neighborhoods in New York City. Each area has its own attractions, culture, food, languages, and people. We can’t wait to learn to compare and contrast these areas.

Teachers Tips 

  • Talk about things that your child likes and dislikes. Encourage them to share their opinion using words like: Agree, Disagree, Like, Dislike, Favorite, Amazing, Awesome, Fabulous
  • Count with your child by 10’s up to 1,000. You can also start at another number (like 9, 19, 29, 39…)
