Reading: (Units of Study for Teaching Reading by Lucy Calkins.)  In second grade, students move from a “little-kid” focus on print to a “big-kid” focus on meaning. The first unit, Second-Grade Reading Growth Spurt, teaches children to take charge of their reading, drawing on everything they know to figure out hard words, understand author’s craft, and build big ideas about the books they read. Children learn that books can be their teachers in the second unit, Becoming Experts: Reading Nonfiction, in which they learn more about familiar topics and grow understanding of new topics while working on word solving, vocabulary development, and comparing and contrasting information across texts. In the third unit, Bigger Books Mean Amping Up Reading Power, children learn strategies to build three foundational reading skills—fluency, understanding figurative language, and comprehension. In the final unit for second grade, Series Book Clubs, children work within book clubs to study author’s craft to understand ways authors use word choice, figurative language, punctuation, and even patterns to construct a series and evoke feelings in readers.

Writing: (Units of Study in Opinion, Information, and Narrative Writing by Lucy Calkins) The second-grade units are written with seven-year-olds in mind. These youngsters are chomping at the bit for something new. They feel very big now and want work that feels big and important. That’s what they’ll get—this series invites second-graders into author studies that help them craft powerful true stories, science investigations and lab reports, and finally, into some very grown-up writing about reading. Across the writing genres, children learn to understand—and apply to their own writing—techniques they discover in the work of published authors. In Lessons from the Masters: Improving Narrative Writing students learn how to create engaging narratives by stretching out small moments and writing in detail. Unit 2, Lab Reports and Science Books, uses inspirational nonfiction texts to help students design and write about experiments and other scientific information. Unit 3, Writing About Reading, has students read closely and gather evidence from texts to craft persuasive arguments. The final unit, Poetry: Big Thoughts in Small Packageshelps children explore and savor language. Students learn to use line breaks to express the meaning and rhythm they intend and use visualization and figures of speech to make their writing more clear and powerful.

Phonics: (Units of Study in Phonics by Lucy Calkins)  Units of Study in Phonics provides a lean and concise instructional pathway in phonics that is realistic and doable, and that taps into kids’ skills and energy for tackling the fabulous challenge of learning to read and write.  It will introduce high-leverage phonics concepts and strategies in a way that keeps pace with students’ reading and writing and helps them understand when, how, and why they can use phonics to read and write.  It will offer delightfully fun and engaging storylines, classroom mascots, songs, chants, rhymes, and games to help students fall head over heels in love with phonics and to create a joyous community of learners.  The Unit of Phonics aligns with state-of-the-art reading and writing workshops for a coherent approach in which terminology, tools, rituals, and methods are shared in ways that benefit both teachers and kids.

Math: (Eureka Math) We will address the following areas throughout the year:

Operations and Algebraic Thinking

  • Represent and solve problems involving addition and subtraction.
  • Add and subtract within 20.
  • Work with equal groups of objects to gain foundation for multiplication.

You are more than welcome to celebrate with us.  If your child’s birthday is in the summer, we will celebrate the last two weks of school.
Give out small party favors such as:

  • Little notepads

If you would like to help out, please drop off items in the office.

Homework:
Reading: 20 minutes every night
Math: Homework will come home nightly, except Fridays.

Passport to Reading: Four days a week your child will participate in one of five Passport groups with children from all five second grade homerooms. Passport to Reading is differentiated for all reading levels. Children are divided by reading skill level as measured by 95% Group phonics assessments. Students are reassessed every four weeks and regrouped according to skill level. Passport to Reading will begin later in September.

Assessments:
MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) September, January and May
CogAT – May
Reading Level – ongoing

Behavior Management: 

  • “Sign my wall”: This is my way of recognizing awesome behavior.  I look for opportunities to catch my students being leaders or model students.  When I see it, I call them out and ask them to “sign my wall.”  It’s kind of a big deal : )  At the end of each trimester, I will check to see who signed the wall the most and they will get to keep the poster along with a prize from the treasure box.
  • PAWS: We are a team and will celebrate our good behavior together.  When we receive 15 compliments for good behavior, we will earn 30 minutes of free time on Friday.  We can also lose paws for poor choices, its up to them.
  • “What’s on your mind?” box:  This is where students are encouraged to speak their mind.  If they see someone being awesome they can give them a “shout-out” which we reward with Bear Nessicities.  This is also a spot where students can let me know if something is bothering them. 

SeeSaw - We will use this app to help document and share student learning.  Students will be able to send their work to their family and families can save students work.
