Thanksgiving Break, No School: 11/20-11/24
I hope you have a special holiday and enjoy time with your family and friends during this week! When I count my blessings, I am reminded of this sweet class (and their amazing parents!). Thank you for being YOU and raising some AMAZING kiddos!
This Week in 2nd Grade
Math- We will review and take the Chapter 3 test this week.
Science- Our radish seed project was a success! The students were able to track the progress of our seeds/roots and make so cool observations. We will not have "Science Friday" this week.
Reading/Writing- We will continue to work on reading comprehension and finding evdience to questions about the text. Read Live and Lexia are also being used during our reading groups. Our writing corner has been a class favorite. It has been fun to see what their little minds come up with when given the freedom to write whatever they want! Recipes, sweet notes to the teacher, facts about their friends, lists of things to do and so much more! This class has a real knack for writing! I LOVE it!
Social Studies- Food production and consumption will be further discussed and we will have activities to take us back to the "good 'ol days" on the farm. This will tie in nicely with our conversations about the first Thanksgiving.
Spelling- Spelling lists will be sent home in HW folders this week. Our test will be on Friday morning.
UPDATE: It has been a couple of weeks since we have met our homework goal as a class. It seems that some students have been forgetting their homework slip (and folder) on Fridays. I will start to reward students who turn in their homework slip on Friday. Although homework is "optional," it is highly recommended that students read for at least 20 minutes/night. Reading will have the best return on it's investment! If you need ideas of reading activities or new books, please let me know! I am more than happy to help!
