So what are we learning about in Second Grade right now?
English--We are continuing to work on using capitals and correct punctuation during morning "Tune Ups."
Spelling--"Bonus Spellers" is well under way. If your child has a perfect pretest then they will be given the bonus list of words to work on instead for the week. (PLEASE REMEMBER THAT BONUS LISTS REQUIRE MORE STUDY TIME!) For "regular spellers", these final lists will be working on compound words, contractions, r-controlled vowels, word endings, prefixes and suffixes.
Math--We are still working hard on Rocket Math and learning our basic facts quickly and accurately. (Be sure to ask your student what their Rocket Math goal is and what level or letter they are on so we can keep them moving in the right direction.)
Extras-- Be sure to ask your child about our brainbuilding activities and what they are doing to try to earn a brain bead.
1. Practice Spelling words---final test on Friday
2. Work on the Common Core (Math/ELA) paper---due on Friday
3. Read the fluency homework with an adult---due on Friday
4. Complete assigned Simple Solutions lesson---due on Monday, Wednesday and Friday (quiz on every 5th day!)
5. Practice prayers and basic facts (until they are memorized)
6. Read at least 10 minutes a day (and complete your log)
No homework! Have an AWESOME summer! See you next year!
