By the end of second grade, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers (57/60 facts, 4 seconds per fact).  Practice those math facts for our time test each week.  57 out of 60 facts is a goal we know your child can achieve by the end of the year.




Science/content writing
We will begin a study of invertebrate animals this week with specific focus on insects.  We will be reading and writing about insects as well as doing some insect projects.  This unit will continue through the next few weeks.  We hope that you enjoy learning about different insects, their life cycles, and food chains as much as the kids do!
Beginning tonight, your child will have a homework assignment Monday through Thursday.  Your child will need to remember to take homework home, complete it, and return it to school the next day.  Also, please encourage your child to read at least 20 minutes each evening.
