Phonics:

It is hard to tell the difference between the -OI and -OY spelling patterns at times! Same as last week, some great ways to practice these types of patterns is by creating a t-chart on a piece of paper or drawing a line down the center of a piece of paper (hotdog style!). Have your kiddos practice writing different examples of the spelling patterns on each side (-OI on one side, -OY on the other). Use magnetic letters or have them practice writing in shaving cream to make the activity more engaging!

Reading:

Our awesome second graders are ready to start pushing themselves with their reading skills! Choose a chapter book to read at home with your kids - make it something you can read together every night. The BEST way to become a better reader is to READ as much as possible!

Practice - practice - practice addition and subtraction math facts. Aside from flash cards you can create an addition and subtraction page and have them complete, or provide opportunities to use math websites.
