The sensational second grade team is excited about the second half of the school year and all the wonderful activities your child will be participating in. We are thrilled about our upcoming Black History unit of study and class projects. Please stay tuned for Black History Month program information for your child. In math, we are using place value to subtract two-digit numbers with and without regrouping. Students are using different strategies to master the skill such as, breaking apart a one-digit subtrahend to subtract it from a two-digit number, and drawing quick pictures to solve challenging mathematical problems. We are continuing to emphasize reading and writing skills, including various types of poetry, opinion writing, paragraphs, and stories. Reading comprehension skills and strategies will be heavily emphasized as we continue to prepare our students to be successful in second grade. Students are asked to monitor and track their AR goals as well as complete their i-Ready activities. In addition, we are looking forward to our class field trip to Sawgrass Recreational Center in March. Students will get the opportunity to explore nature while riding on an airboat and visiting different exhibits. As always, thank you for your continuous support.
