2nd Grade

Our class Scholastic code, if you would like to order books online, is
2CYH0


     This week we will be learning and discussing the expository text, Soil. We will be working on questioning and identifying fact and opinion to aid in comprehension. We will work on dipthongs ou, ow, oi and oy for our phonics skill and delve deeper into adjectives for grammar once again, with superlative and comparative adjectives. Students will also continue to work on using text evidence to answer questions. The class will also continue to identify full sentences, and write them independently. Our reading and spelling tests will be on Friday.

     This week in Math the students are continuing Topic 8. This topic focuses on money and time.  I will be breaking up the topic into money and then a separate test for time. We will be focusing first on money. There will be many handouts going home, as well as worksheets for homework. This is an important topic and we will be taking our time mastering this.
 
     We are continuing the Science Chapter on Rocks and Minerals this week. Most of this chapter is through packets and handouts. The students are asked to keep everything in school so that when it is time for a test, they know where everything is and can use it for review. 
     The Landform projects are still on display. We will be picking names out of a hat to take the project home, as it was a group project.  If you DO NOT want the project to come home, please let me know and I will make sure you child's name is not in the hat. 


Reminder:
* Reading logs should be handed in each  day
* February book reports are due AFTER winter break
* Please review all science vocabulary terms
* Please continue to review money with your child
* Scholastic is due on Thursday
