This week we will finish up Superkids. Our focus this week is about adverbs and adjectives and proverbs. Ask your child what each of these are. Proverbs are a little tricky. Ask your child what the following proverbs mean: Don’t count your chickens before they hatch. They early bird gets the worm. Don’t cry over spilled milk.
This week in writing, we are working on our Super Magazines. At the end of the unit the children will have published their own cover to cover magazine. Ask your child: what feature article are you writing?
This week in math, we are continuing to learn the basics of multiplication. Children will be working with arrays, even and odd numbers and equal groups.
Some of us are already working on multiplication. Lots of us have some of our tables memorized but we are really focusing on breaking down the problem so they understand what multiplication means.
We will be wrapping up our landforms unit. This went a little longer than we expected because of the current volcanic activity in Hawaii. The children had to first plan and then draw a land mass containing several different landforms. This week we will be recreating our landforms out of clay. Watch for these to come home.
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.
