Welcome to Second Grade
The most current news.
In math, we are continuing our work with place value. We are focusing on composing and decomposing numbers up to 1000, so that the students understand that numbers can be divided in different ways. For example, 410 could be 41 tens or 4 hundreds and 1 ten with our place value blocks. We are using this knowledge to add and subtract 2- and 3-digit numbers. In social studies, we will be taking a look at different holidays around the world and comparing them to our own families’ traditions. In reading, we are studying the differences between fiction and non-fiction texts, and in writing, we are writing opinions that are supported by clear reasons.
Our December book order is going home today. Orders are due by this Friday, December 6. You can order order online by clicking here. I will place the order that day so that it will arrive before the break. Let me know if you are ordering any Christmas presents and I will set those aside and contact you when they come in so your child doesn’t know!
Please see the slip in today’s Monday folder all about our gingerbread houses! We will be making gingerbread houses the afternoon of Friday, December 20. We could use candy and parent help if you are able! This is a fun way to wrap up our holiday unit and is always a hit with the kids!

What is Remind?
Remind is a communication tool for treachers and families. It not only keeps you updated on what’s going on in the classroom, but also allows two-way messaging.
Combined with this website, you will have the tools to know what and when things are happening. You can join Remind by clicking on the “Sign Up For Remind” button at the end of the Remind Entries section.
