This week in Superkids, we will:
Read words with /or/, /er/, /ear/, /ar/
Associate ed with /ed/, /d/, and /t/
Spell memory words
Recognized that ED represents past tense
Identify base words and endings
Encode words with and without spelling changes before adding /ing/ and /ed/
Understand meanings of comparative and superlative adjectives
Add /er/ and /est/ to compare things
Add /ed/, /er/, /es/, /est/, and /ing/ to words with final Y
Ask your child: If I add /ed/ onto the base word Skip, what is my new word? (skipped) What does ending sound /ed/ tell us? (past tense) What is an adjective? (describes a noun)
This week in math, we will:
Use a place-value model to represent a 2-digit number as tens and ones
Determine a quantity represented by a given number of tens and ones
Find combinations of 2-digit numbers, using only tens and ones
Recognize that different combinations of tens and ones for the same number are equivalent
Determine the difference between a number and a multiple of 10 up to 100
Use an equation to represent a two-digit number as the sum of multiples of ten and some numbers of ones
Ask your child: How many tens are in the number 47? How many ones? What happens when we are adding two-digit numbers and the ones-place value is greater than ten?
This week in writing, we will:
Understand the difference between nouns, verbs, and adjectives
Understand word order
Recognize that using detail makes us stronger writers
Begin a character study with Stellaluna
We will use our character findings to write about how she changes (character traits)
Ask your child: What is a noun? Verb? Adjective? Why do writers use those parts of speech? What is the story of Stellaluna? How does she change throughout the story?
Welcome to Second Grade. Together we will learn, wonder, grow, explore, make mistakes, play, laugh and inspire each other to be the best that we can be.
