Classroom News

Our Classroom Community:

Reading: 

Assessing the children on their independent and instructional reading levels is an ongoing process. We have completed the online growth monitoring check for this period. We are improving our reading skills through independent, buddy, small group and whole group reading experiences.  Our first round of testing is currently being done.

Writing: 

We are focusing on personal narrative right now.

Word Study:

Beginning in early October, a new word study list will go home on Mondays.  We have challenges on Fridays. Currently, we are working on blends and digraphs with long vowel and short vowel sounds.

Math:

We are currently in Unit 1 which will be completed by the end of September.  Homelink assignments are a direct reflection of the lesson taught in class that day. Have you taken advantage of the online advantages for Everyday Math?

I-Ready:
Diagnostic testing is done 3X per year.  Growth monitoring happens in between these times.

Science & Social Studies:

These subject areas are part of our 2nd grade rotation system. In Science we are studying Earth, Land & Water which will last 16 weeks. We will be exploring the MC3 Social Studies curriculum this year.
