We have enjoyed our first month of school! Make sure your child is practicing addition/subtraction facts and their weekly word list at home.
Writing- We are writing personal narratives and focusing on strong openings and closings. We are also working on editing our writing.
Science - We will introduce the states of matter. Students will work on identifying if an object is a solid, liquid, or gas. They will also determine if the changes on an object are permanent.
Reading - We will review the story elements character and setting. Students will also use what they read to explain the plot of a story (beginning, middle, end).
Social Studies - Students will learn about Georgia's 5 Regions and begin identifying and labeling the 3 major rivers (Chattahoochee, Savannah, Flint).
Math - We will continue to work on representing numbers. Student will complete addition/subtraction word problems within 20. The will also be introduced to dimes, nickels, and pennies.
Health - This nine weeks we will discuss healthy food
Do you feel that the way your child is learning math is different than how you learned or do you just need a little clarification on a topic? If so, please follow the link below to see videos on how to help your child with our 2nd grade math concepts. These videos are made by Mableton Elementary teachers (a fellow Cobb School).
