What are we learning?

Ms. Burke's Reading Class:  We will be reviewing multi syllabic words over the next two weeks.  We will take our test on December 14th over the words we have studied for Fundations.  We will use the same word list next week and then will have a review the week before break. 
We are also learning how to grow our knowledge when reading nonfiction stories through looking at details, putting parts together in our mind, asking questions, and thinking about what the book is teaching us.  We are also researching animals, their adaptations, habitats, and characteristics.  We will study this up until break. 

Math:  We are learning how to add and subtract two and three digit numbers using many different strategies we will work on lessons 5-8 next week!   

Science:  We will be animals, adaptations, and habitats over the next two weeks! 

Social Studies:  We will be focusing on needs and wants as we study our animals and the regions in which our animals live. 

Writing:   We will continue learning about research.

  • 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
