Dear 2nd Grade Families,
I hope you had a wonderful vacation with your family. It was nice to see the sunshine and warm weather last weekend! I’m hoping for more days like that in the upcoming weeks.
Notes and Reminders…
*Please make sure to continue to send proper winter gear. Even though the sun might be shining, it still can be a bit chilly and hats and gloves might be needed.
March is Reading Month
March is just around the corner and at West Maple it is a very special month. Each child in our class will have the opportunity to be our class mystery reader. There is a separate note in your child’s folder with directions and a date for your child. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me!
Homework
*Each 2nd Grader should be reading for 20 minutes every night.
*New word sorts are being sent home today. Homework is due back to the classroom on March 4th.

This week in 2nd grade…
In Reading: We are turning our focus to non-fiction text features (table of contents, glossary, index, caption and diagram). Students will use these text features to help them have a better understanding of non-fiction books.
In writing: We are beginning our unit on opinion writing. Students will use a topic sentence to name their opinion on something and give reason and evidence to support their opinion.
In social studies: We will continue to learn about Black History Month.

Have a great week!
