A Week of Learning:
Reading: This week second graders will learn to distinguish the topic from the main idea of a nonfiction text.
Writing: This week we will focus on letter writing. Students will be learning the parts of a letter and how to write with a purpose in mind.
Spelling and Grammar: Spelling words this week: begin, close, door, girl, leave, open, slow, upon
Grammar lessons include commas in the letter writing: date, greeting, and closing.
Science: As we continue to explore the differences between natural and man made resources, we will move into the differences between fresh and saltwater. Students will learn where our water comes from and how we can help to conserve our natural resources.
Math: We are reviewing Area and Geometry this week with many hands-on activities. We will take an assessment over area on Thursday.
Bits and Pieces:
-Schlitterbahn and Six Flags reading logs have gone home in Thursday folders. Please use these to record your nightly and winter break reading. This is reading I’m sure that everyone is already doing, so it shouldn’t be anything additional to add to your plate. When you have read enough hours, return your form to me and I will turn them in for a free ticket to Schlitterbahn and Six Flags to use this summer! (Six Flags due Feb 2, Schlitterbahn due Feb 16)
1/15 - Testing for gifted services will begin
4/1 - Final decisions regarding placement will be mailed out
It’s that time of the year again! Science Fair is right around the corner. Join us in the library for Science Research Night on Thursday, December 7th from 5:30-6:30.
