We are working very hard on our new Geometry unit. Please help your child memorize the names of the 3D and 2D shapes.
Thursday, January 21st is the 2nd quarter assessment, This assessment is used for your child’s report card grades and covers all the secure skills we have done so far this year. A review sheet was sent home on Friday.
We have started our new science unit on weather. We will be learning about different types of weather and clouds and the water cycle. The MSU extension program is coming into our classroom on Jan. 22nd to teach us about water and the water cycle.
We read our first treasure book of the new year this week. Please keep an eye out for the envelope to come home and spend a few minutes having your child retell the story to you. Being able to retell a story is a very important skill in second grade. The treasure book sheet is due back 2 days after the story was read. Make sure your child fills out the form and does their best job.
Everyday we work on reading and writing. During Daily 5 sessions your child has the opportunity to choose what they would like to work on. They can choose from read to themselves, read to a partner, write about reading, listen to reading or word work. The children look forward to the Read to yourself session of Daily 5. While they are reading they work on CAFE skills. CAFE stands for comprehension, accuracy, fluency and expanded vocabulary. Ask your child what skill they are working on this week.
