READING:  Be sure your child spends at least 30-60 minutes reading each weekday.  Take the weekends off if you want, but definitely read every day.  If you want a change from handheld books I have links to online books on my blog.  Students can read and on some sites they can listen to the books.  
MATH:  Second grade students are working on double and triple addition with and without regrouping.  If you are interested I can send you links to websites where you can print out worksheets for your child.  This is NOT the most fun way to do math, but it will keep their skills sharp.  We have a handful of students who still need additional practice with single digit addition and subtraction.  The xtra math site is a great site for practice of addition and subtraction facts. If you are unsure of your child’s current math level please email me.  Finally, Prodigy Math is a huge favorite.  Students love to meet up virtually in the game.  If play dates are not a possibility, have friends find each other on Prodigy and have a virtual play date!
WRITING:  Second grade goals in writing include using punctuation correctly, using capital letters correctly, and the ability to write about a topic, write a story, which makes sense, and write a friendly letter.  Each child selected an animal to do research about.  Our next page is finding interesting and/or unusual facts about our animals.  This research can be done at home and brought back to school to add into their animal books!
SCIENCE:   We have been studying the human body and it's major organs and systems.  I am looking for a good site for students to continue learning about the human body.
 
GEOGRAPHY: Students can work on learning the continents and oceans. I will try to find a site to help students with this in a fun way.

Please take care of you and your family. Hope to see you all again at the beginning of April.
