What are we learning?

Ms. Burke's Reading Class:  We will be starting Unit 3 in Fundations.  These are words that have the glued sounds, -ild, -ind, -old, -olt.  We will not have a homework link on See Saw this week.  We will also continue to study how to solve tricky words.  We will be practicing multiple strategies to figure out unknown words when reading.  We will continue studying how to do a complete retell with lots of details. 

Math:  After the break we will begin Module 3. We will be revisiting addition and subtraction strategies over the next few weeks.  We will also be working on place value.   

Science:  We will be studying plants over the next few weeks.  

Social Studies:  We will be continuing to study communities and how problems can be solved in different communities.

  • Home Support Expectations

    • In 2nd grade, homework is a family choice and you determine the routine for your child.

    • Reading Practice- All students are expected to read 20 minutes 5 nights a week. At this point in reading development it is equally important for your child to practice reading out loud, reading to themselves, and listening to you read. Students will turn in a reading calendar at the end of each month.

    • Eureka Math Resources- Each week in the Weekly Walk Through we will let you know which lessons can be reviewed at home from the week with the Eureka Home Support materials.

    • Students will also receive Word Study practice from their reading teacher. Look out for more information regarding reading routines coming soon!

    • If you would like to supplement additional practice here are some other resources that will be useful:

      • iReady- an adaptive online learning system that meets the individual needs of your child. They can practice reading and math at home. (If you are using an iPad you must download the browser “Puffin” as iReady will not run in any other browser.

      • Reflex Math- Online math fact practice. Students can log in on the iPad app or on any computer.

      • Epic Books- Instantly Access Over 15,000 Books for Kids 12 and Under for $4.99/ month
