Read

Your child should read aloud to an adult everyday. Ask questions about what they have read:

What happened at the beginning, middle and end of the story?

What was the problem in the story and how was it resolved?

Who was in the story (characters) and where did it take place (setting)?

 

Don't forget to read to your child

List 1 and List 2 of the Dolch Word List

Math

Basic Facts - Practice addition and subtraction facts until they are "known by heart".  Having the basic math facts firmly in place will help your child be successful in Math as these are the building blocks for upcoming units throughout the year and many more years to come.  This can be done by playing games, using apps, and even using flashcards.

Skip Counting - Practice counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s up to 100.  Many children have a difficult time going beyond 100 - but if your child is ready, they can get comfortable going up and over 100 and continuing the patterns.  Try skip counting backwards.

Grade Two - Grade 2 is all about the numbers to 100. Adding and subtracting to 100 which I did not finish teaching so do not worry about that right now. Multiplication and division do not begin until grade 3.

We have done question like this: 32+14. We have not done question with regrouping (carrying) like this 29+16.

The attached information was requested by parents to clarify the NO STOPPING zones in our school parking lot.

We also have many signs, pylons and painted areas to help identify these zones.

The NO STOPPING zones along the street are clearly marked, and are there for everyone's safety.
