Mr. Longo's 2nd Grade Class
Here is a general overview of what the students are learning about and working on.
Reading and Writing
The students are working on synonyms, antonyms, homophones, and making inferences as well as identifying the main idea of fiction and nonfiction text. The students are continuing to work on writing stories about one topic that include a beginning, middle, and end. We are also going back to our stories and editing them to see where we can add more details and make them better.
In science the students are learning about weather. We are exploring some of the weather instruments and what they measure such as a thermometer, rain gauge, and weather vane. We will also be exploring why we record and keep track of the weather as well as different kinds of storms and their characteristics.
We are finishing up graphing and probability, and soon we will be getting back into number sense for our next unit. During that unit we will be working on rounding, comparing numbers, and counting and comparing money.
