At the moment we are focusing on strategies to solve division equations. This is something you could practice at home.
Being able to solve equations is one part of our learning. We are also making sure we understand division stories. Partition stories are easy for us to understand but quotition stories are posing a challenge. (See the Division Explosion post to explain the difference).
We have been talking about how important our handwriting is. As we approach Year Three, we need to make sure we are starting our letters in the right place and exiting them properly. This will help us when we are asked to join our handwriting. In week two we practiced letters in the U family: u, v, w, y, b. We will next be focusing on anticlockwise letters such as e.
Students are still to be reading at home each night. They can continue to complete response sheets and return their Reading Challenge book to school each Friday or Monday.
In writing we are focusing on PERSUASIVE texts (expositions). I wonder if you can write a persuasive about why 2MS students deserve free time on Friday afternoons. Perhaps you could write a persuasive text for or against homework… 🙂
Learning conversations at home are super important 🙂
