2nd Grade



           This week we are reading the Mayan Myth, The Night The Moon Fell, by Pat Mora.  We will work on visualizing, as well as identifying the plot and theme for our comprehension skill and strategy.  We will always be practicing our self-questioning strategy as well.  This week we will take a look at adverbs that tell when and where.  Our phonics skill will be looking at specific patterns.  This weeks patterns are vowel-consonant-consonant-vowel and vowel-consonant-vowel.  We will have a spelling and reading test on Friday.  

             We are continuing the remaining part of Topic 8, on Time.  As a reminder, this includes the packet, occasional homework worksheets and the book.  Again, if you are noticing your child struggling with anything, please let me know in case I am not seeing the struggle in the classroom.  The test is scheduled for March 1st. 
             We are continuing to learn about our Rocks and Minerals Unit.  This is a portion of Chapter 5 in the Science textbook.  The students have a packet in their folders for additional work, as well as lab work.  The students really enjoy this topic.  Please be sure to ask them questions about what is happening in class.
