Teacher Jennifer Elia - Second Grade  (Send e-mail)

I hope everyone had a great weekend!! The weather was perfect!!

This week:
R.L.1- I can ask and answer "wh" questions to demonstrate an understanding of key details in a text.

R.L.5.7- I can retell stories


**We will continue guided reading this week.
Every group will meet with me 3-4x a week to read and discuss chapters. If the book and book bag come home, please reread and discuss what we read in class. All books must come back every day, I don't have any extra copies.

Math: We are working module 2, measurement. If homework comes home, please be sure to review it with your child. If it is too hard, please send in a note, and I would be very happy to work with your child on the homework.


Our Module 2 test will be on Tuesday this week. A review was sent home over the weekend to practice.

Please go on zearn to review skills of the week.
Fact fluency, your child will have access to Xtra math in the classroom. They can also do this at home. It's a great way to increase fact fluency.

Writing- We will continue our first unit in Writing Workshop on Narrative Writing.

Words Their Way: We have given each child a Words Their Way Inventory. They have been placed appropriately into specific groups. In 2nd grade we do "walk to" for Words their Way, so your child might stay with me, might go to Mrs. Curran or might go to Mrs. Milosovic. This an excellent way to provide differentiated word study opportunities.

We will work on basic handwriting tips in our journal.

Weekend journals were sent home last Friday, they are expected to be returned today. They will come most Fridays going forward.

In October, our reading response journals will start to come home. This will replace one weekend of weekend journals. More information on this will be sent home soon.

Please be sure to check B.E.E. binders every night!!

Looking forward to a great week!!!
