As we wrap up another week in Grade 2 it is hard to believe that our first Unit of Inquiry is almost finished! Next week will be our final week learning about how our students identify themselves in their communities and what they can do to contribute to their communities in a positive way. We will be asking for help from parents to showcase examples of our students contributing to their communities in different ways (either with a photo, a video, or anything else that can be uploaded to their Seesaw account) so that they will be able to use these examples to write personal narratives about what it is that they have done.
Next week we will also be giving a math assessment to check and see how we are progressing towards meeting our Numbers in Base Ten standards. Students will be given a chance to show what they know about identifying hundreds, tens, and ones, skip counting, and showing number in different ways. They will also show what they have learned so far with addition and subtraction.
We continue to work on building reading stamina, and reading fluency through figuring out tricky words. Students are using what they know about vowel teams, words within words, and finding just right books for independent reading time.
As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher. Have a great weekend!
