Second Grade News: June 2018

2nd Grade Curriculum

ReadingWe have started Book Clubs. In our Book Clubs we talk about our books and use our peers to help us understand what we’re reading. Our clubs get together daily to ask questions and talk about what they're learning. 

Writing- We are working on an independent writing project. Each student has chosen a writing genre that we learned this year to perfect. We are learning about writer’s voice, organization, creativity, and revision. Ask your child what he/ she is writing about. 

Math- We are learning about subtraction and using our addition strategies to support our subtraction skills. Keep practicing at home so we can work our way up to 1,000.

Social Studies- We are preparing for our end of year New York City Neighborhood party. We are thinking deeply about what makes New York City unique and learning how to teach that to others. We are looking forward to sharing what we have learned with our friends and families at our Neighborhood parties!

Teachers Tips 

  • Read with your child every day. 
  • Log on to Lexia for 10 minutes a day.
  • Practice math fluency by quizzing your child with addition and subtraction within 100.
  • Practice skip counting by 10’s without starting at 0. (Example: 154, 164, 174, 184, 194, 204, 214…)
  • Get outside and play some games! Enjoy the sunshine!
