Mrs. Richardson's 2nd Grade Scholars

      I am so excited to have you in my classroom this year. We are going to learn and share so much together. This first nine weeks will fly by, so let me tell you a little about what you will be doing. 
     In Reading, we will be using Reading Wonders to help explore a variety of fiction and nonfiction texts. With this program we learn to listen to what we are hearing to pull out critical information such as nonfiction text features. We will also complete an author study. Our spelling will come directly from our Reading Wonders and will be reinforced daily by the materials we are using.
    In Math, we will begin by reviewing addition and subtraction up to 20. We will quickly move into sums and differences up to 100. We will have a unit on measurement and will measure a variety of items using several different methods. We will also continue to work on place value.
    In Writing, our focus will be on narrative writing and we will write in our journals several times a week on a variety of topics.
    In Science, our main topic this nine weeks is force and motion. Science is often one of the favorite subjects in second grade.
   In Social Studies, we will talk about cultural expression and will begin discussing our year end project on Spain.
   We will also have STEM activities during our enrichment time on Friday each week.
