This Week in 2nd Grade
Math- This week we will start Chapter 3! We will work on different ways to add to 100 with a hundreds chart, number line and other strategies.
Science- This week we will be introducing our new plant unit. We will be exploring seed dispersal and look closely at seed structure and function. This will tie in nicely to our geography/map concepts nicely!
Reading/Writing- Readers Theater was so fun and effective! These kids are doing a great job identifying punctuation and matching their voice. This week we will work on comprehension and finding evdience to questions about the text. Our writing workshop has exploded with many creative ideas! It has been so fun to watch them write and come up with characters, setting, problem and solution.
Social Studies- Maps and geography will continue to weave in and out of other learning areas. We will also start thinking about food production and consumption and how that has changed over the years.
Spelling- Look in the Monday Folders to find your student's new spelling list. Each Monday the students will have a chance to work with their spelling words, find spelling patterns and sort them accordingly. I will make sure to have time scheduled in class to practice throughout the week.
Red Ribbon Week
We will take opportunities during Red Ribbon Week to talk about health, nutrition and making good choices for our bodies.
WOW! These kids keep meeting their class goal each week. We have bumped the goal to 290 STARS! The homework menu will be the same as last week. Remember that all activities are optional but READING is the the most VALUABLE!
