Second Grade Newsletter

Week of August 21

 

 


Reading:

SOL 2.8 Comprehension of fiction texts

  • character analysis

  • beginning, middle, and end

SOL 2.7 Syllables and compound words

Writing:

SOL 2.12 – Students will draw and write about themselves.

Homework:

Students need to complete three spelling activities by Friday.  Also, the students will need to read nightly and parents need sign the reading log for the week and return the log on Friday.

 


Math:

SOL 2.5 – Addition and subtraction facts.  Please have your child begin memorizing these facts.

I have signed your child into two computer programs for math.  I have enclosed the username and password for both of these programs in this folder.  Your child will be able to get on these programs at home as well as at school. The one program, XtraMath, will help your child with the addition and subtraction facts.  The other program, IXL, will go over many of the skills we are covering in 2nd grade.  It will also review skills from first grade.      

 


Social Studies:  

2.11  The students will explain the responsibilities of  being a good citizen.  Please make sure that you check Mrs. Johnson’s webpage on the school’s website.  The study guide and flashcards for the unit are on the webpage.  I plan to do that each unit.  The study guide and flashcards will go in their notebooks and come home Wednesday.  The quiz will be on Friday, August 25.
