Ms. Grant Grade 2



The month of April brings warmer weather, 

which leads to mud and puddles everywhere on the playground. 

Please make sure that your child has appropriate footwear for our outside activities.  

The kids play hard and they certainly do not hesitate to get into the mud puddles. 


  Please Note:

The school wide expectation for students is to read or be read to for at least 20 minutes a night.

What We’re Learning

  Our school this year will be emphasizing the Responsive Classroom, which is an emphasis on establishing rules and appropriate behavior using consistent language and techniques all day long.

 Goals, expectations and the “social curriculum” in the first few weeks of school are critical to the overall success of the entire year.  We are working on a sense of group, establishing rules/consequences, and guided discovery. 

Building a sense of group includes simple group activities that help the children get to know each other better.  Guided discovery is a method by which areas of the room or classroom materials are introduced slowly and deliberately to the whole class. 

We will also do a variety of activities and assessments that will allow individuals to show where they are academically.  This will allow for the teacher to better meet the needs of each student. 

What We’re Learning

Math:   We will spend the rest of the year reviewing and mastering the math skills that we have learned so far this year.  This includes addition/subtraction fluency, addition/ subtraction with and without regrouping, identifying and counting money, telling time, measuring lengths, estimating, rounding, and interpreting data on a graph.

Reading: We continue to read from our reading text books each day and have centers that involve the iPads and our weekly spelling words.  The class enjoys being read aloud to and modeling fluency is essential in learning to read.  We will read “Big Bad Bruce” by Bill Peet.  With this story we will explore literary elements such as; character, setting, problems/solutions, and themes. 

Writing:  We will be working on our informational writing about Arctic animals and start a narrative writing piece about superheroes.

Social Studies/Science These subjects are integrated into reading and writing.  We have Scholastic News and Science Spin magazines that we read each week
