Place Value Help

Parents you can watch a very good place value video to help explain the concept.  The “place” is where the digit is found ( hundreds/tens/ones). In the number 573 the 7 is in the tens place.  Value is how much the digit is worth in a particular place. For example the value of the 7 in 573 is 70. The expanded form  video can also help understand this concept. Expanded form is the sum of the values – 573 expanded is 500+70+3. Hope this helps!

It’s Time for Cursive!

Room D8 parents and students we are about to start to learn cursive. I explained today that it is important to hold your pencil correctly . Tomorrow we will work on body posture and  positioning the paper. This will be referred in class as the 3 P’s ( pencil, posture, paper ).I have linked videos on how to form the letters on the side under Student Writing- Cursive Videos (click to view). You will need to scroll down the page a bit to find the alphabet of videos. Please encourage your child to stick with it. The more they work the easier it will be to read and write in cursive. I have found for those with poor printing learning cursive at this age is helpful for becoming neater.

Students and Parents of PW 2nd Graders,

We will be celebrating the season and what we have learned from studying How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by doing good  deeds. Share your child’s good deeds on Seussvill.com . We will be recording our good deeds this week and bring home a worksheet on how we grew our heart 3 sizes doing these good deeds this week.

From the website:

For every deed shared, Random House Children’s Books will donate a book to a child in need through First Book. Plus, your child may be selected for a special “Grinch Daily Gift.”*

We also invite you to share your child’s good deed(s) on Facebook and Twitter to help inspire others (#GrinchGoodDeeds and #GrowYourHeart).
