Mrs. Frey - Grade 2
Instructor: Mrs. Frey   




Dear Parents and Students,

I hope everyone had a refreshing spring break. I can't believe April has nearly come and gone! With May on the horizon, the second graders and I are looking forward to an exciting month.

Please check back periodically
for updates. Thank you.

Spelling:áWe'll be learning about closed and open syllables.
*Closed syllable words: pen-cil, hap-py, cac-tus... short vowels and consonants in the first part of the word.
*Open syllableáwords: ba-by, pa-per, la-bor... long vowels in the first part of the word.á


Phonics:
á
Grammar/ Vocabulary:áWe'll be discussing pronouns and possessive pronouns. Remember: "Cause saying all those nouns over and over can really wear you down..."

*Don't forget to check out the weekly vocabulary words in your spelling book.á

á
á
Writing: The 2nd graders will be writing book reports and then reports on different animals to practice for their upcoming insect report project. We're looking forward to the "Insect Zoo" in June!á
á
Reading:áGRAB reading homework has begun... ANY reading counts! Also, try re-reading some of your favorite stories to practice fluency (AKA reading like a professional). Try giving characters matching voices. :)áá
á
á
Math:áWe will be working on Topic 12: Geometry. Lots of new vocabulary and lots of fun with shapes...

*Be sureáto check out the Math "work mats" that your child will bring home in their folder. There are all sorts of interesting activities to do together!

á

Strategies for Learning Our Facts:
1) Memorize!
*Turn around facts: á 4-3=1, 4-1=3
*Fact families: 5+2=7, 2+5=7, 7-5=2, 7-2=5
*Doubles: á á 16-8=8
*Count up: 16-13= 3 (14, 15, 16)
*Ten Buddies: 10-7=3

2) Count On/Back (Put the biggest number on your head and the smallest number on your hand)á
3) Count On/Back (Use your number line!)á
4) Draw a picture... slow, but true. :)á

á
Science:We will soon begin our unit on plants and insects. We've just received our caterpillar friends and are currently taking care of mealworms, pupas, and darkling beetles.á

á
Social Studies: The children are eagerly awaiting their American Hero biographies. We can't wait!á

Character Education: This month's theme is "Citizenship". á

First Day Notes
What a great first day of school! I can't wait to get to know everyone even better in the upcoming months.

A couple of things:

1) We have a short snack each day and the children have been learning the importance of: washing hands before eating, remaining seated while eating (to keep crumbs in place), recycling plastic, and washing hands and desks after eating to be respectful of allergies. Thank you for reinforcing these procedures at home. :)
*Milk is available for lunch via a form which has been sent home.

2) If you have not already done so, please return all new school year notices. Thank you!

3) Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. A note in your child's folder, a phone call to the school, or an email will do the trick (dana.frey@hanovertwpschools.org / dana.frey@htboe.org). I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Looking forward to an amazing year,

~Ms. Frey
