Thank you for joining me at Parent Teacher Conferences this week! I love to share information about your child with you and I SO appreciate all of your support!!
Please continue to check the North School website for important updated school information!
We've been busy in 2nd grade!
Reading and ELA: we continue our unit on informational/nonfiction text. We have read and discussed informational books including text features and their purposes.
Also, our animal research writing project is in full swing! Ask your child which wild animal they have chosen to research. I encourage you to read and research about this animal at home or at the pubic library. They love when family gets involved with their work! :)
We are using multiple sources of information to gather facts. Books, EPICBOOKS, Facts4Me and others...Remember to login to EPICBOOKS to read highly engaging books!
Areas to focus on: Physical characteristics, diet, habitat and interesting facts
