WEEK OF 5/15~SPECIAL MESSAGES:
2nd Grade Wish List:
This week for reading, I will be conducting individual end of the year reading assessments.
READING: Unit Week ~Essential Question:
Vocabulary: You can find the vocabulary in the Reading/Writing Workshop book. Vocabulary will be introduced on Monday.
So far, the students learned about 2-D shapes in chapter 12. There will be a quiz over the first 3 lessons of chapter 12 on Tuesday, 5/16. We will continue on to finish the chapter this week. I will be sending books home on Thursday for the students to complete pages 789-792 to review for the test on Friday.
FYI...Vocabulary will be on the tests. Please be sure to review vocab with your child.
KEEP PRACTICING ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION MATH FACTS DAILY!!! Flash cards are a great way to review and practice.
We will finish chapter 23 tomorrow. The test will be Wednesday, 5/17. We will then push through chapter 24 and the students will have the weekend to prepare for chapter 24 test on Monday.
Some key ideas to remember for chapter :HINT~Use these bullets as a study guide.
Chapter 24~test Monday
The students will prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion this year. They will receive these sacraments later in the school year, but you can help your child by helping them prepare now by visiting Jesus weekly at Mass and participating.
SCIENCE / SOCIAL STUDIES
We will continue our discussions about types of clouds.
We will also read TFK.
*All science tests will be open book/notes. My goal is to have students learn the study skill of looking up answers in their texts to find the evidence to support their answer.
S.S.: We will finish up the government unit.
