Mrs. Coman's Second Grade Announcements

  • Families,

    I hope you all are continuing to do well and staying healthy.  Please let your children know that I miss them dearly and I continue to keep you all in my prayers during this challenging time.  Please find learning activities and information in the emails I send out weekly to each of you.  If you are not receiving my emails, please check your spam/junk mail folders or contact me at mcoman@duplinschools.net to ensure I have the correct email address.  All of the resources I have shared with you are also located on the "Remote Learning Materials" and "Useful Links" tabs on my webpage.  Please continue to read for at least 20 minutes daily.  After your child reads, be sure to ask them questions about the book to make sure they are comprehending what they have read.  In math, we are continuing to work on two-digit and three-digit addition and subtraction (with and without regrouping) and over zeros.  It is very important for your child to be confident in this process!  Although technology does seem to engage children, I would not recommend using it for long periods of time.  When at all possible, kids need to go outside, get some sunshine, and have some imaginative play.  This is so important for their well-being!  There are different kinds of outdoor scavenger hunts kids can do and maybe write about their experiences after.  Indoor scavenger hunts can be fun on those rainy days, as well as, cooking or baking as a family.  Children can even create and write their own recipes.  What a great way to incorporate reading, writing, and math by practicing step-by-step procedures.

    I truly admire you all as you face the challenges of managing work and supporting your child's (or children) learning at home.  This is a learning curve for all of us involved, and I value your input on how I can assist during this time.  If there is anything I can do to help in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me.  Thank you for all you do!

    You may contact me directly through my email, mcoman@duplinschools.net or via message on Remind
