How exciting to be starting 2nd grade!  We are going to have a great year together! The first few days we will be going over daily rules and routines.  We will also be getting our folders and notebooks set up for the different subjects.

 For the first couple of weeks we will be setting up and establishing routines for our Reader's Workshop.  We will then begin our year with a unit on reading growth spurt.  The children will learn to build their stamina when reading...they will learn to read longer and stronger.

Our first unit in Writer's Workshop will be "Revving Up Our Writing Muscles".  This is a short unit. We will go over how to write a correct sentence.  We will talk about capitalization and punctuation.  We will then move on to narrative writing.

Our first unit in Math will focus on number sense. Odd and even numbers will be one of the first things we will be talking about.  We will be counting by 1's, 5's, and 10's.  We will also be learning how to write a number in different ways.  Please make sure to practice your addition and subtraction facts to 20.

Social Studies and Science will be woven into our daily activities for the first few weeks.  Then we will begin units in both areas.  More information will come at that time.
