What's Happening in Room 19

Second graders have been working so hard to build their foundational reading skills with fiction books! Our new reading unit teaches students how to read with more fluency and expression! While your child reads at home, prompt them to look at feelings and dialogue tags to help them sound like the character! Continue to use Raz-kids and visit the public library to find “just right” books of interest!

We recently finished our fiction writing unit and now starting our next unit on poetry! We will have the chance to explore poetry with creative topics by capturing what they notice
and feel on the page. Students will pay close attention to using precise words, images, rhythm, and sound.

We are continuing to develop our addition and subtraction skills! Our 6th math chapter is on 3-digit addition and subtraction with and without regrouping! Students will learn a variety of strategies to help them solve problems!
Please continue to review the rules to regrouping at home. For extra activities with math facts, check out websites such as: mathfactspro.com and ixl.com/math.

Science/Social Studies
In Science, second graders have been so busy working on describing the properties of matter! In Social Studies, students are learning all about influential people who made a difference in the world (like Martin Luther King Jr!)
