April is an exciting month in second grade. We will begin new work in the areas of reading, writing, and math. In reading, we will begin a new unit on reading nonfiction texts. Students will draw upon all they’ve learned as informational readers to tackle this unit. In writing, our focus will also shift to informational writing as we begin our unit on science books. Students will be researching topics and will write informational books in order to teach others. In math, we will move into our unit on addition and subtraction within 1000. This unit will build upon the work we did earlier in the year. This unit also integrates bits and pieces from previous units such as telling time, money, place value and problem solving. We’re looking forward to a great month!
