What's New in 2nd Grade?
Current Units of Study
Reading (Teacher's College Reading & Writing Project):
Accelerating Readers' Growth in Longer Fiction Books
This unit will continue help second graders shore up their word solving muscles, so they’re able to move through the reading process smoothly and can focus on the trickier comprehension work that is expected of them at these higher levels of reading (K/L/M). All of this work requires students to be able to fix up their reading at the point of error quickly.
Writing (Teacher's College Reading & Writing Project):
Writing About Reading
Students will begin this unit writing letters - work that will be familiar to those who participated in the kindergarten opinion writing unit on persuasive letters. Across the first bend of this unit, students will draft letters about the characters they’ve met in their books, formulating opinions and supporting their ideas, providing reasons, and using details and examples from the test to support their claims. Students will uncover their opinions about more than just the character they are getting to know; students will also be writing about their favorite scenes, illustrations across the text, and lessons learned.
Math (Engage NY):
Addition and Subtraction Within 200 with Word Problems to 100
In this unit, students develop place value strategies to fluently add and subtract within 100; they represent and solve one- and two-step word problems of varying types within 100; and they develop conceptual understanding of addition and subtraction of multi-digit numbers within 200. Using a concrete to pictorial to abstract approach, students use manipulatives and math drawings to develop an understanding of the composition and decomposition of units, and they relate these representations to the standard algorithm for addition and subtraction.
