Second Grade Stars


Our scholars kicked off the week with focusing on place value to help solve subtraction problems. I am amazed with their knowledge and ability to explain all of the steps to solving these problems.  Ask your child to share what they learned with you!!

Reading Workshop

Reading Workshop has entailed our scholars monitoring their own reading comprehension as they silently read. So often, avid readers of all ages fly through the pages of a great book. What our readers are finding is that it is easy to read quickly without soaking in the details of the content. Second Graders have also been using sticky notes as they read to mark important details about the characters. They have enjoyed getting to know all of the characters in their books and have learned to act out the character emotions as they read aloud. Second Graders have really enjoyed bringing their “characters to life.”


Capitalization of names has been the name of the game this week for our scholars.  Partners gathered together to create sentences where they determined words that should be capitalized.  They worked on making frog leaps with capital letters and learned to start at the top (above the line) for tall lowercase letters (t, d, f, h, k, l, & b).
