December News

Wow! We are so proud of how much our second graders have grown so far this year. During the month of December, we will be finishing Unit 4 of Everyday Math.  Unit 4 focuses on place value and measurement.  Students will work on telling time, measuring length, and continue developing an understanding of place value to the hundreds place.  

In language arts we are focusing on identifying key details in a fiction text, as well as story elements.  In writing we will begin our opinion writing unit. Students will be able to write about their opinion on a topic, and support it with clear reasons and details. 

We will continue to study Geography in social studies. We will focus on different landforms around the globe. 

We also are continuing with social emotional lessons using our Second Step curriculum.  We have been working on how to use a polite assertive voice to ask for what you need, as well as how to pay attention to body language to help us understand how people might be feeling.  

Office Hours: Second grade teachers will offer daily office hours from 2:30-3:00 (with the exception of Wednesdays). If you have questions for your child’s teacher and would like to connect during that time please send an email and we will schedule a time.  

Upcoming Dates:

  • Friday 12/18/20 No school (teacher work day)
  • Monday 12/21/20- Monday 1/4/21 No School (Winter Break)
