We have just begun a reading and writing unit in nonfiction. Soon, your child will be talking to you about topics he or she is interested in and would like to learn more about.
We will research and collect information about topics that interest your child. Research in second grade is about three things: observing closely, asking questions, and reading. For example, a child writing about and thinking about manatees can visit the local zoo, talk to a zookeeper, visit websites, and look at various research books.
Please talk with your child about his or her interests and help with the research process at home by facilitating this wonderful conversation. We look forward to learning a lot together!
