Second Grade Newsletter September 14, 2018 Reading-This week we met Camila in the informational text, My Family. Camila is a girl who shares special times and happy celebrations with her family. We also read Family Poetry. We discussed comparing and contrasting (telling how two things are alike and different), words with the short e, o, and u sound, complete sentences-(sentences that have a subject (who) and a predicate (action part) and sentences being in the right word order. Math- We wrapped up Chapter 1 and took the test on Thursday. Please review the test questions your child got wrong –we learn from our mistakes. We will start chapter 2 next week, which is about numbers to 1,000. This chapter is very similar to chapter 1, but now we will work with numbers into the thousands. *Remember you can log into www.thinkcentral.com if your child is having difficulty with a concept.
