We love celebrating birthdays in second grade!
Our school policy, however, does not allow food treats to be brought into the classroom. If your child would still like to bring in a treat, non-food items may be brought in. Examples include pencils, erasers, bookmarks, stickers, etc. We have 27 students in our class.
Everyday in second grade we enjoy a snack. Water bottles will be allowed as long as they do not become a distraction. Please encourage your student to bring in a healthy snack each day to enjoy as we work.

Here are a couple great websites to practice reading and math skills at home! You will be directed to an appropriate level based on your child's MAP score. Click on your RIT range that you need to work on. Always round up if needed.
These allow users to go to the reading and math MAP levels for their students. The Test Tutor has question and answer quizzes to practice recognition of figures of speech, literacy elements, vocabulary building and prefixes and suffixes. Once the path has been set for the desired skill, students can easily work through at their own reading level for practice.
Math is similar with computation, number sense, place value, estimation, and probability - all the items that are covered on the MAP tests organized according to the student's score.

Targets for the week:
Literacy: I can describe how characters respond to a major events or challenges in a story.
I can identify the characteristics of a folk tale, fable, and fairy tale.
I can ask and answer questions about a story.
Math Targets Module 1:
I can skip count by 5s, 10s, and 100s.
I can count within 1,000
I can add or subtract 10 or 100 to any number from 0-1000 in my head.
I can write and tell time to the nearest five minutes.
I can count mix coins up to a dollar and use the correct money sign to write the amount correctly.
During the week we began discussing how characters respond to events and challenges that happen in a story. We talked about the difference between character traits and character feelings. We will continue talking about character traits and feelings. Try having your child identify the main character in the story and how they responded to a challenge. We will continue working on this skill this week but using fairy tales, fables, and tall tales. We will focus more on the genre of folk tales these coming weeks.
This week in Math we finished mondule 3. We also took our module 3 test. I will be sending home the test on Tuesday please look over it with your child and if you have any questions let me know. The students did well understanding the different forms a number could be written. We will be starting module 1 this coming week. Module 1 focuses on making 10 to help with addition and subtraction problems.
Your child can access Zearn at home but visiting zearn.org and clicking "Sign in with Goggle." Students should use their log-in number followed by @elmhurst205.org. You can remind them that it is the same code for their chromebook. If your child doesn't remember it shoot me an email and I will send it your way.
