Second Grade News
From Mrs. LeGere & Ms. Lombardo



Winter is finally here! Remember hats and gloves. We have completed Unit 3 in Reading and have completed the third unit test together. The students are familiar with the three parts: Listening and Note taking, Writing and Reading. The next unit test will be completed independently and scored. In January, we studied about Dr. Martin Luther King's life and his contributions to our lives today.

We are also studying Famous Black Americans for Black History Month. In mathematics, the students have completed unit 5 on shapes, line segments, etc. In unit 6, they are learning more addition and subtraction of 2 digit numbers with trading. Please check over their homework and review addition and subtraction daily. They need to be memorizing the basic facts to assist them with more complex problems now.

We will be  celebrating Valentine's Day on Feb. 14, so watch for a letter coming home soon.
