Reminders: Pictures - Picture day on Tuesday, October 17th. Continent Club - Thursday, October 26th. Family Math Night - Thursday, October 26th at 7:30 p.m. Homework - Students should be reading 30 minutes each night and filling out the reading log. Weekend News - Every Monday we write about something we did over the weekend. Please help your child review activities that you did over the weekend, and select one moment they can write about. Some students are having difficulty remembering what they did, or want to include everything they did, which then takes them all week to complete. Math Homework - Please continue to have your children work on Dreambox and Front Row. Front Row (Fact Practice) is an excellent way to practice addition facts to 20 and connected subtraction.
Reader's Workshop - I can choose just right books for me. I can increase my reading stamina each day as I work towards 2nd grade goals of reading actively for 40 minutes. I can follow Reading Workshop routines and expectations. I can push my eyes ahead and read in big scoops to read fluently. I can stop, think, and retell what I read. I can meet with a reading partner and have a STRONG book talk by retelling beginning, middle, and end. I can ask my partner questions about the book they are reading. Writer's Workshop- I can write about what I did over the weekend. I can hook my reader with an introduction, add details using transitions words (First, Next, After that, Then, Finally), and I can end with a closing sentence. Math Workshop- I can add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value. I can use non standard units to measure the length of objects. I can use addition and subtraction strategies to solve word problems using length. Starting on 10/23 - I can write the 3 digits of a three-digit number to represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones. I can read and write numbers to 1000. I can compare two and three digit numbers using >, <, and =. Social Studies/PYP- I know how to be a bucket filler. I can be friends with others even when our perspectives are different. I can learn from others' thinking and points of view. Central idea: I can understand friendships are enhanced by learning about other people’s perspectives and communicating our own.
