Summer Ideas

What can you do over the summer with your child so that they do not have the “summer slide” and forget what we learned this year? Here are some ideas:

Math: Your child received 2 math workbooks in their school stuff you picked up. These math books review all skills taught this year, so they are great resources to use! Review addition and subtraction facts so your child doesn’t lose those using flashcards or technology. This class LOVES addition and subtraction war using playing cards. Ask your child how to play! Your child can also use a dice to create 3 digit addition and subtraction problems to solve. Mobymax will still be usable all summer long as well.

Writing: Have your child write letters to grandparents/aunts/uncles or a pen pal! This will help them not lose their writing skills and remember to use capitalization rules. Also continue to have him/her work on correctly spelling trick words from the trick word list.

Reading: Read, read, read!! Have your child continue to read 20 minutes (or more if they want) every night. To have your child work on accuracy, you can have him record himself reading a page on a device, then play it back to so he can check and see if he got all the words correct. To work on fluency/reading at a faster pace, have your child read a page and time himself with a timer. Then have him reread that page and time himself trying to beat his score. To work on comprehension, ask your child questions about the book he is reading (“Who are the main characters?”, “What is the problem in this story?”, “What do you think will happen next based on what has happened so far?”) You can continue to use Raz-Kids all summer long!

Science/Social Studies: Explore! Create! Ask Questions! Research!

Growth Mindset: Remind your children to try challenging things and to expect mistakes. Allow your children to struggle so they can learn how to continue despite the task being hard.

Thank you for a wonderful year and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions!

Digital Learning – Week of April 13th

Welcome back from Spring Break! This week’s Second Grade Digital Learning Choice Board can be found AT THIS LINK.

On Friday, 4/10, the District announced that we are going to four-day digital school weeks from Monday – Thursday. Friday will be a day for students to catch-up on any previously assigned lessons. Teachers will be able to collaborate and conference with peers, parents and/or students, assess student progress, and prepare future instructional lessons. Can you have students continue to use digital tools to learn on Fridays? Absolutely! Is it required? No, but if working with a structured schedule is better for your child, then please carry on!

One of our top questions has been, “What about placement forms?” If you wish to fill out an OPTIONAL CLASS PLACEMENT FORM, THE NEW DIGITAL LINK IS HERE. If you filled one out previously on paper, you will need to complete again. RISING THIRD GRADE PLACEMENT FORM.

Additionally, if you would like your child to be considered for placement in Mrs. Goldt and Mrs. Mullins class, please complete the 3-2-1 Opt-In Lottery Request for Goldt/Mullins. 3-2-1 LOTTERY REQUEST.

Because this process of not being at school together is going to make placement more challenging, we are only offering a short window for completion. If you choose to complete the optional placement information, please do so by Friday, April 17th.

Resources for Choice Board

Hi All,

Here are a few resources that you will need if you/your child chooses to do these particular activities on the choice board. The links may not work on the choice board for these activities, so you can access them here:

If your child will be practicing spelling trick words and does not have a list of trick words in his/her daily folder, please access this list: Trick Word List

If you child chooses to read the Social Studies Weekly about Jimmy Carter and write down 3 things he/she learned, then please click on the link to access the Social Studies Weekly:  JimmyCarterSSWeekly

Additional Resource:

This is not part of the choice board. If your child is practicing adding and subtracting 2 or 3 digit numbers and he/she is having trouble remembering how to solve it using expanded form or you have no idea what to do because…well, it’s not the math we learned growing up, see the video explanation below made by our very own Jenn Sigmund!
