Welcome to Second Grade

I am so glad you are here!

What are we learning?

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. 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.

Gingerbread houses

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 21. 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!

Our December book order went home last Monday. Orders are due by next Friday, December 7. You can order by turning in the paper order form or by ordering online. Click on the link here to order right now!

Goodbye to Miss Lee

Last Thursday was Miss Lee’s last day with us. She has decided to focus on infant and toddler age children although she has promised to come back and visit us throughout the year!
