Welcome to 2nd Grade!
Welcome to 2nd Grade! I am so excited to get to work with you and your student this year! I will be sending newsletters through an app called SeeSaw weekly! If you aren't connected to this yet, let me know! Otherwise my email will be checked frequently throughout the day if you have any other questions or concerns! Communication is key to me and I love hearing from you!
READING: We will be learning from the "Wonders Reading Program." There are many different types of stories in our reading book this year. Which will give you quite a variety of genres to discover! Not only do we use our reading book together but we encourage independent reading with Accelerated Reading Program (AR) which we will set personal goals to obtain! We suggest that the students should be reading or reading with a parent for 15 minutes each night at home!
MATH: 2nd grade math is the best because we get to do a lot of practice with addition and subtraction! We also spend time working with money, interpreting graphs, telling time, and a little algebra! We will be using "Math Expressions" and the "IXL Program" to practice. We will apply all of these skills with both whole group and small groups during our day together!
SCIENCE: The great thing about our reading series is that it incorporates a ton of different science topics throughout our year!
SOCIAL STUDIES: We will be learning more about rights and rules in 2nd grade, how to read and use a map and also the importance of timelines in history!
Again, contact me with any questions or concerns!
Mrs. Sonnek! :)
