Hi Families! I hope you are having a great summer and I am so looking forward to meeting all of you for a great 2nd grade year. These months, please make sure to read, read, read. The Chicago Public Library has a great summer reading program that is all about Earth. They have science experiments and recommended reading as well as prizes to keep kids motivated.
Real world applications of telling time, counting money, counting and adding items in the grocery store are great ways to keep kids engaged in math while prepping them for 2nd grade math.
The library also has passes that can be checked out for museums this summer and offers chess classes and tournaments.
