Good morning,

     Parents, I cannot thank you enough for your amazing support during this unprecedented time.  As we continue to move forward, the second grade teachers felt it would best to give you a pacing guide for the week so your child can complete the weekly assignments at his/her own pace.   You may submit one piece of your child's BEST WORK for the day.  I hope that this makes it easier for you!

 

I just added an idea called, "FUN FACT FRIDAY!"  I have added this as a page on my web site.  The children can submit facts that they find to be really interesting, and send to me each Thursday.  I will then post them on the page on Friday for the children to enjoy reading.  Please see the page for examples.  I can't wait to read all of their FUN FACTS!!

 

Work to be completed for the week of 3/30-4/3:

 

Math Lessons: 15.1, 15.2, 15.3, & 15.4 -  A video of these lessons are posted on Pearsonrealize.com if you need assistance.
