LANGUAGE ARTS
Our current focus is looking closely at book characters. Students are looking not only at the traits of characters but at problems they may encounter in the story.

WRITER'S WORKSHOP
Our current focus in writing is writing persuasive/opinion pieces as well as all about books.

MATH
Second Grade Students are focusing on operations and algebraic thinking. Daily routines will focus on number sense and counting coin values. Students should work on memorizing addition and subtraction facts to 20. We are currently exploring even and odd numbers as it applies to larger numbers. They are also looking at "story problem situations" with missing parts.

SCIENCE
Our second unit of study will be "sound". Our broad theme focus for the year is "CHANGE".

SOCIAL STUDIES - We are looking at the many aspects of what makes a community. Our current focus is wants and needs, goods and services.
