Recap and reminders:
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and restful break. Thank you so much for your hard work in helping the kids with their remote learning assignments!
Report cards will be sent home on Thursday, 12/3. I’m so proud of each and every student’s hard work!
Please check your child’s planner and folder each night to help ensure our 2nd graders are completing assignments!
Welcoming a new week:
Reading & ELA- We’re moving on to a unit on Verbs in ELA.
As we continue on with learning about storytelling, we’ll read our story for the week, A Crow, A Lion, and a Mouse! Oh, My! This one’s a drama, so the more the merrier as you read together at home! I will post the link to the story on google classroom on Tuesday. Comprehension quiz on Friday.
I will also post the link to a decodable two-part story we’ll be reading in small groups, Tess and Jay Set Sail and A Wrecked Ship! Each week, these decodable stories include familiar high frequency words, words that can be sounded out using phonics rules, and words that follow the rules for our weekly spelling words. Great stories for practicing fluency, reading with inflection, and letting your growing reader read you a bed time story once in a while!
Spelling- Here’s the rules for this week’s spelling words, Test on Friday!
This week’s words all have the long /a/ sound. All of the words will have the vowel pair -ai or -ay.
Math Concepts- moving on to chapter 4, all about 2-digit addition!
Social Studies- our new unit will focus on the difference between goods and services, learning about income and taxes and decision making concerning earning and spending money.
Science- we will talk about ways we can practice conservation in our daily lives at home and at school.
Religion- We will focus on the wonderful world God has created for us and focus on taking care of God’s creations.
