We are really off to a wonderful start. The kiddos are SO HAPPY to be back in school this year and I am loving teaching them face to face.

In 2nd grade we are hard at work not only doing a lot of paper and pencil work, but learning all our fun new, interactive, and educational technologies and apps which are really enhancing our learning. At only 7 and 8 years old we have learned how to play our math curriculum games online, how to find, and read, our hardcover anthology online, navigate our extra supplemental curriculum like Epic books and Scholastic News, and we are even taking our tests online! These kids are going to be way more tech savvy than their teacher pretty soon!

While we are doing a lot of practice with our computers, nothing can replace holding a real book in your hands and doing work on paper. In 2nd grade we switch from primarily “learning to read” to “reading to learn.” This means that now that we have a strong foundation in actually reading, we can start digging deep into comprehension, citing text evidence, and applying comprehension strategies to cold reads. The kids are doing a fantastic job having beautiful scholarly conversations where we not only read the text out loud, but further discuss what is happening, why we think this is happening, based on what we’ve read and what might happen next? We are practicing not just answering questions, but finding the specific text evidence to support our answer. I am so proud of them!

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will bring!
