News Letter

Our students have been making amazing progress in reading throughout the year. We have worked on sequencing events and understanding/analyzing characters. We encouraged our students to learn about characters in books by thinking about the things they say and their actions. Toward the middle and end of the month, we worked on comprehension skills such as comparing and contrasting and taking a close look at the text features of an informational text. Throughout the year, we strengthened skills in fluency and vowel patterns.  Remember to have your child continue using these skills during the summer by visiting the Eisenhower Library and to also complete their summer reading log. These logs will be collected on the first day of Third Grade An activity matching the theme will be planned on the first day to bring empowerment to our community of young readers and jump start our adventure in Third Grade!

In the area of math, we continued our focus on place-value concepts and take what we have learned earlier in the year another step forward. We also worked with fractions: developing an understanding of fractional parts of a whole, fraction notation, and vocabulary associated with fractions. We also be continued our work with word problems by practicing our problem solving strategies. Please remember to keep those facts fresh. Visit xtramath and practice those math facts daily.

This is the last newsletter of the school year. We’ve enjoyed sharing with you the many activities and events happening in second grade. It’s hard to believe that our school year is winding down so quickly. We are amazed at how much the students have grown both physically and academically. Thank you for sharing your children with us this year! They will certainly be missed!
