This semester is quite exciting, beginning with our Insect unit. All second grade classes will attend The Insect Adventure at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in February. The students will learn about Insects and their habitats in our own backyards. We are finishing up an expository writing sample to inform the readers about the life cycle of a butterfly.
As we get closer to the end of the year, please pay close attention to your child’s Weekly ELA (English Language Arts) Test. We carefully review these tests in class, because they are on the computer and examine how close the student was to the class average. Your child teacher has taken the first part of second grade to get students used to the type of test they are expected to take. These tests are a close comparison to the Third Grade FSA.
Please work on fact fluency with your child at home. In class we are working on double digit addition and subtraction using the standard algorithm. The students are struggling with the basic facts.
