Lincoln's Homework Policy

Lincoln's homework policy is to request homework the day before you need to pick it up, when your child is ill. This helps give the teachers plenty of time to get the homework together. You can email the teacher or call the office and leave a message with your request. Thank You

Reading & Writing-  2nd Graders were very excited to start learning cursive this week. We are learning 1-2 letters each day. We are continuing our work on finding the main idea of a topic. This is a tricky concept. After we read a text we learned to go back and look for repeated important words within the text & highlight them. These words usually help explain the main idea. We recently read a text about Martin Luther King. Some repeated words in the text were civil rights, black people & fighting. Many students were able to restate the main idea that MLK fought for civil rights for black people to be treated fairly.  We also learned to pay attention to the title or heading which sometimes give us clues as well as the first couple sentences or the last. Fountas & Pinnell testing has begun to see each child's progress in reading. In writing we have been working on our New Year's Resolution. Each child picked a goal they wanted to work on this year.

 

Thank you to all the parents who encouraged their child to work on their math packet & read a book over break. It really makes a difference after a couple of weeks off. We continue to work on  multi digit addition and subtraction with borrowing and carrying in Module 4. I was so happy to see most children remembered the process. Ask your child to show you the different strategies they have learned like the Vertical Method, H,T,& O chart, Arrow Method, Decomposing/ Compensation or Make the Next 10 method.
