Welcome to Second Grade!
We do many exciting things in Second Grade! Second graders will read mass parts, learn cursive, multiplication, and division.
Second graders should be reading an average of 20 minutes a night, this time needs to recorded in their Library Folders. Library Folders are due every Monday. Each block in their folder is worth 15 minutes if reading time. I will mark the number of blocks read and the students will color them in at school.
Practicing math facts is also a great way to keep our brains active. Basic addition and subtraction facts, money, and time are all great things to work on. Here are some wonderful math websites:
Don’t forget to practice those spelling words! Here is a great website to help: Spelling City
Second graders will have homework most nights. Students should be able to do most of the work completely on thier own. The work will be review. Please look over your students’ homework each night and help remind them to immediately place the completed work back into their take home folder. If your student is having a difficult time with their homework please send the work back with a note. I will be happy to help.
