Math Chapter 3 Review

~pictographs- students have to remember to check the "key" because often the symbol used in the graph stands for more than one
~tally marks
~Circle graphs- how to read them- what part is the most/least
~range- in a series of number the largest number minus the smallest- example: 2,3,4,5,6- the range is 6-2- so the range is 4
~Venn Diagrams- two overlapping circles comparing/contrasting two groups- in the center where they overlay is where the two groups are the same
~Mode- the number that comes most often in a series of numbers- example- 2,3,4,5,5,6- 5 is the mode
~Median- the number in the middle in a series of numbers- 3,4,5,6,7- the median is 5
~how to read/make a bar graph

We have reviewed this material every day this week, so the students should know most of it well. Please just review.

Welcome back!!

Welcome back to school.  I hope everyone had a great vacation and holiday.

We are about to start 4 full weeks of school heading into the Christmas holiday.

A few reminders to begin with-

~There is a First Penance meeting tonight at 7:30 pm in the Lower Church
~Friday, December 2 is a half day- noon dismissal
~I will send the December book orders next week.  If you wish to place an order as a gift, just let me know and I will make sure you get the order without your child knowing about it.

This week we will continue our study of nonfiction literature in reading.  The name of the piece we are reading is "If You Find A Rock."  The vocabulary words are chain, trace, fossil, print and outstretched.  The word "print" as defined -"a mark made by pressing."  The new spelling words will have the long a sound.  In grammar we will discuss the three different types of sentences (questions, statements and exclamations) and which end mark is used to complete each type of sentence.

In math we will be finishing up chapter three and we will have the test on this chapter on Thursday.  Please review the following concepts with your child to help prepare him or her for the test:  pictographs, tally marks, circle graphs, bar graphs, line plots and Venn Diagrams.  Also students need to know mode (the number which occurs most in a sequence,) median (the number which occurs in the middle of a sequence of numbers) and range (the difference between the last and the first number in a sequence.)
For example:  2,2,4,7,9
the mode is 2 (because it occurs twice)
the median is 4 (because it is the middle)
the range is 7 because 9-2=7

This month in Social Studies we will be discussing Christmas traditions around the world.  We will start this week with Italy and hope to get to Australia as well.  In addition, Flat Stanleys continue to come in!!!  Lately we have received Canada (thanks to Nick), New Hampshire, New York (thanks Jack), North Carolina, New Jersey (thanks Antonio) and Iowa, Washington, New Jersey and Belgium (thanks Kady!!)

In religion we will discuss Advent and the church calendar.  We will talk about the Advent wreath.  In addition, we will continue in Chapter 8 discussing the Old and New Testaments.

Here's to another great week in second grade!!
