I hope everyone had a great weekend!
We had a very productive Monday here in second grade. We wrote about our weekend this morning. Then, in reading we practiced two main skills- visualizing and writing about reading. We listened to a story and visualized as the book was read (we didn't see the pictures .) Then we wrote and drew about how the main character was feeling based only our our own visualizations and clues from the text. We also wrote the beginning, middle and end of the story we read. We worked in literacy centers and read with Mrs. Potter. We took a spelling pretest and corrected it.
In math, we practiced adding three and four digits. This can be difficult, so please practice with your child at home. Tomorrow we will move on to subtraction.
In religion, we finished Chapter 1. We reviewed that Jesus was both human and divine. We also reviewed the meaning of Holy Family and Blessed Trinity.
We are learning about Johnny Appleseed in social studies and we started to share our All About Me posters with the class!
Spelling- write your spelling words three times each
Reading- Beginning today, I will send one book home in the homework folder p/week. Please read some of it (or all of it, depending on the book) every night. Having read independently with every child, this book is a good book for you child's independent reading level. I will remove the books Friday and send new books on Mondays. This communication will help you to see your child's progress and will give him/her a book right on level to read.
Back to school night is Thursday
