Dear FamiliesIMG_0403

IMG_0418When I said February was going to be a short month I didn’t realize how short it would be!  Time is really flying by.  We hope everyone enjoys a well-deserved and restful week off from school!

Here is what 2R will be learning about this month

Math – We will be finishing up Chapter 4 and moving on to Chapter 5. In this chapter we will learn Double Digit Subtraction (with and without regrouping). Your children NEED to be practicing their math facts at home. Use Xtramath.org to help with math fact speed. Please make sure you are registered under my class.

Reading - We have started Unit 4. In this unit, we are continuing to strengthen our skills and strategies.  Unit 4 reinforces comprehension strategies like inferencing, fact/opinion, compare/contrast, and theme and plot.

English – We will continue to learn about adjectives and how we can use our sense to describe a noun.

Phonics/Spelling – Our spelling words will consist of vowel patterns /oo/ and /u/, as well as dipthongs: ou, ow, oi, oy

Social Studies – We have started the chapter “Our Earth”. We will continue to learn about landforms. Big thank you to Mr. McCarty for coming in and talking to us about the Grand Canyon!

Science- We will prepare for our STEM fair.  Come visit the classroom on March 8th to see our projects!

Religion -2nd grade will be preparing the St Patrick's Day Mass on March 16th at 9:15am. We will also continue with Unit 2 about Penance and Reconciliation.
