Happy March!!

We have been very busy in 2nd grade! 

We just completed group fairytale plays and Mrs. Sutter will be recording them for us so we can show you all the hard work we have done!

Our New ELA unit will begin this week:


been, knew, much, room, write

Essential Questions:

1. How do readers identify the main topic of a multi-paragraphinformational text?

2. Why is it important to determine an author's purpose for writing an informational text?

3. Why do readers and writers gather information from different sources to support a topic?


In reading groups we will be learning and reading about biographies! Students will be reading about important people in history. We will be writing a multiple parapgraph informative piece about a famous person of their choosing--in the coming weeks. :)



Objectives for unit 6:

Use drawings to represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones in 3-digit numbers.

Read and write numbers to 1,000 using base ten numerals, number names, and expanded form.

Compare 3-digit numbers

Add or subtract 10 or 100 to a given number 100-900

Add and subtract within 1,000

We are in need of SUPPLIES!!! Many students no longer have scissors, crayongs, colored pencils, and pencils! The dollar store has so many great options--we have lots of school time left and many projects to complete. Thank you for all your help!
