    Everyday second grade mathematicians persevere during math workshop.
    Students work with partners to engage in standards-based math activities that will help to develop
    their foundational math understanding. Math Practice Standards are woven throughout math workshop
    to support student interactions with math concepts. Unit 1 focuses on the decomposition of numbers through 10, telling time, money, fact fluency to 20, skip counting, and using math tools such as a number grid.

    Writing workshop is a time for writers to practice the craft moves they have learned.
    Second grade writers are working Long and Strong by planning, writing, revising and editing.
    Our first unit is Narrative writing. Students bring their own small moments to life by adding
    dialogue, strong action words, and setting details.
    Help your child at home by engaging them in discussions about
    the details from moments in their life.
