2nd Grade – Armstrong

April Newsletter

In room 105, we are hard at work reviewing for NWEA in Math, Reading, and Language as well as learning additional new information. We are working on multiples and multiplication in Math, and reading strategies and retell in Reading. We have been working extra hard on reading independently, as well, for our March reading goals!

Language Arts
In Language Arts, we are still working on sound codes from Phonics International. We will be working on grammar – commas and parts of speech – and writing and editing. We continue to practice retelling and remembering what we read, which can be done at home as a part of reading homework, too! In addition, we’ve been continuing to read independently as a reading goal for March.

Science/Social Studies
Science: We are discussing force and motion and the solar system. We also have been learning about natural resources and the water cycle.
Social Studies: We are learning map skills, and historical facts.

We have been focusing majority of math time on multiplication and figuring out different ways to solve multiplication problems. We learned about arrays, repeated addition and learned some fun multiples songs! Coming up, we are going to start learning about weight. We will be measuring different objects and converting kilograms to grams.
