Mrs. Bryant and Mrs. Hoyos would like to welcome you to 2nd grade! We have many exciting activities and learning opportunities for you to look forward to.
This year we expect our 2nd graders to make good decisions in the classroom, solve problems as independent thinkers, and show respect to all. In 2nd grade, participation is a must! Every day students turn and talk to each other to further understand concepts and share different ways of solving problems. We will work on stamina and fluency in reading while increasing comprehension. In the classroom, your child will be learning a variety of challenging and exciting curriculum based on the content standards:
*Main idea-inferences-context clues
*Grammar-nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs
*Parts of Speech-collective nouns, proper nouns, reflexive pronouns (myself,
yourself) plural nouns, past tense verbs
*Compound Words-(backpack, baseball, etc.)
*3 writing genres-opinion, informative, and narrative
*Number sense-count by 1’s to 1000
*Place value-ones, tens, hundreds, thousands
*Time by 5 minute intervals, hour, half-hour, and quarter hour
*Counting money by 1 cent, 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents, and 50 cents
*Making change from $1.00
*Measuring-inches and centimeters
*+/- facts to 20
*+/- two-3 digit numbers
The expectation for reading fluency is that all students read 90-104 words per minute in a grade-level text by the end of the school year.
Our online resources; RAZ-kids and Dream-Box will also be available for extra at home practice. Students should be completing 7 or more Dream-Box lessons a week.
Students will also be participating in classroom music and a theatre and literacy program.
We are looking forward to a wonderful year for all of the 2nd grade students.
