- Reading: 20-30 min, every day through out the whole year. As parents, we are encourage to ask open ended questions about the plot, compare and contrast characters in the book vs. people we know and also asked our child to prediction of how the ending is going to be.
- Writing: All 2nd graders are expected to write grammatically correct sentences with punctuation, and capitalization etc. They also have a journal that they keep to write down their free flowing thoughts, and ideas.
- Spelling: The school has cut down the number of words the kids need to learn on the weekly basis so I’m SO happy about it.
- Number sense
- Place value of whole numbers to 1000
- Addition and subtraction of 2 and 3 digit numbers with regrouping ( not sure what regrouping means)
- Earth Science: Rocks, soils, fossils
- Physical Science: Learning about motion, sound energy and magnetic energy
- Life Science: Life cycle
- Social Science
- Exploring Family Roots
- People who supply our needs
- Cultural difference etc..
- PE: My favorite subject in school but not Danielle’s. School’s expectation are basic: participation and sportsmanship so that to me is the easiest subject out of all. Shows up, give it your best and don’t feel bad if you loose. I plan to work with Danielle on jogging and softball to build some self-confidence out in the field.
Changing to more lighter and funny subject
Last night, for a brief moment, I turned on the TV and Dolly Parton was singing 9-5 while the professionals were dancing on the floor. I noticed how skinny she’s getting and how her small frame accentuate her large breast even more than before. We all went to bed before knowing who got kicked off the show and I had the dream that I had a boob job gone wrong. They were shaped like pyramids and there’s nothing the doctor could do to fix it. I blame Dolly for this wicked dream of mine. I'm happy with what I have and will not get an augmentation even though most of my neighbors have one.
