• Things to Do While You're Hanging Out This Summermonkey

    Our second graders sure have grown this year!  Help your children continue to grow and practice what they have learned in school this year. Spend some time during the summer reading, writing, and practicing math.  Help them explore topics in which they are interested. Here are some resources to help you this summer.  
     
    Language Arts
     
    • Practice your handwriting - both print and cursive letters 
    • Finish any pages in your Journeys practice book not completed.  
    • Visit the Journeys site and read some of the books we enjoyed this year.
    • It's a good idea to practice your spelling words over the summer.  Ideas: Sort by patterns, by vowels, by rimes, your own way; brainstorm other words that look like/sound like a spelling word; write variations of the word (i.e. plays, played, playing); make up spelling activities like we did in class; write a story using some of the words; find the words in books you are reading.
    • Keep a summer journal.
