Here's whats happening

 

 

Reading: 

Students continue to have daily reading homework. Students should be reading for at least 15 minutes per day. Please help your child remember to read and fill out his/her log each night. Thank you!

3 ways to read

reading at home

Writing: We just starting learning about the different parts of a paragraph: topic sentence, details, and closing. We use the hamburger example: the top bun is the topic sentence (main idea), the details are the burger, lettuce, and toppings, and the closing sentence is the bottom bun.

Math
:This past week we worked on solving one-step and two-step word problems using addition and subtraction within 100.

Science/Social Studies:

We studied Europe, Asia, and Australia. Asia is the largest continent and Europe the 2nd largest. Australia is home to the kangaroo!


7 continents

Side x Side: EECS has partnered with an organization called Side x Side to help 2nd graders explore and learn all about ocean animals. So far your child has chosen one animal and started a scientific drawing. Also, students will make an Informational booklet and craft project. Stay tuned!
