Welcome to Second Grade!

Dear Families, 
March is an exciting month for us in second grade.  Please help your child prepare for their individual share day in March.  The theme is "Growth Mindset" and your child may bring in objects related to their share in addition to the prepared key points discussed at home.  They will identify a goal they are working towards and practicing with persistence
As readers, we completing finding facts and information in nonfiction books.  Please ask your child which nonfiction books they have explored and to share a fact they have learned with you.  We also finished our author study on author/illustrator, Kevin McCloskey.  He shared about his book, We Dig Worms during our assembly and we loved making connections to him as he shared each page of his comical non-fiction book.  Check out the picture of our class with him on our Art in our Classroom page.  We were so fortunate to meet him and make a welcoming bulletin board for him! 
We are finishing our writing our expert all-about topics for our nonfiction writing unit.  Thank you for helping your child bring in photos related to their topic.  They were excited to use them in the book they are creating. 
Our Math Unit 6 focuses on Whole Number Operations and Number Stories.  Please have your child continue to practice their Minute to Win It practice test each night in their STAR binder, in preparation for Friday's test.  In social studies we will be discussing Women's History Month, celebrating Dr. Seuss' life, and St. Patrick's Day.  In science the students will continue to switch classes.  Our class will be learning all about rocks this month!
Thank you for your support at home as always!
Mrs. Lettiere
