Reading Workshop

Learning Objective: Students will be able to… ask and answer questions about who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate their understanding in a text. 

Summary: We are continuing with our third reading unit: Reading Bigger Books, and we will focus on improving our fluency. Students will continue to practice reading with the intent that an author brings to a particular book, using their own voices, inflections and gestures to bring out the author’s intent and will also work to read with a smooth, steady, confident voice. 

Writing Workshop

Learning Objective: Students will be able to… share and support their opinion in writing. 

Summary: We are continuing our third writing unit about opinion writing. Students will write book recommendations for book awards of their favorite books and explain why they think they are special. Our goal is to state clear reasons and support them with evidence from the book that the reader can check on the stated pages. 


Learning Objective: Students will be able to…solve sums and differences within 100. 

Summary: We will continue with our fourth unit focusing on addition and subtraction to 200 and solving word problems to 100. Right now we are moving into the portion of the unit covering strategies for composing tens and hundreds. This consists of using mental strategies to relate compositions of 10 tens as 1 hundred and 10 ones as 1 ten as well as relating manipulative representations to the written method. We will also be practicing solving additions with up to four addends with totals within 200 with and without two compositions of larger units. This is a difficult topic for many second graders so additional help and practice at home when needed by your student is highly encouraged. 

Social Studies

Learning Objective: Students will be able to… know and learn more about common landforms found on Earth. 

Summary: We will continue our learning about different landforms such as: mountain, canyon, hill, peninsula, island, valley, isthmus, cliff, dune, plain, glacier, butte, volcano, and plateau.
