Dear Parents and Guardians,

This is the LAST week that there will be spelling words and homework!!! I know you are all jumping for joy!!!

Our annual Field Day is on June 7. Each grade level has been assigned a color to wear. We will be wearing YELLOW t-shirts. IF you have a t-shirt that is primarily yellow but has graphics that will be fine. If you want to purchase a yellow shirt, Michaels has them for $3.33 online on sale from $3.99. The North Suffolk Walmart had v neck yellow shirts in the boys’ dept. for $3.47. I do have a FEW yellow shirts I’ve collected over the years to loan for that day if necessary. Please let me know if you will need to “borrow” one from me. Please send the note for your student’s lunch plans for that day as well as your volunteer form if you plan on helping.

We will work on the following skills in Reading this week:
• Ask and answer questions
• Prefixes mid-, mis

In Science this week, the students will continue learning about plants and their products.

This week in Math the students will learn about geometrical shapes, both plain and solid. We will also continue to work on 2-digit addition and subtraction. This is a very difficult skill for 2nd graders so any extra help that you can provide at home would be greatly appreciated!

In Social Studies this week we will wrap up the unit on the 3 First American Groups with a test on Friday. I will send the study guide home on Monday.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Cindy Martie

In Science this week, the students will review for the Benchmark on Wed. It will cover How Things Grow, Chapter 4, and How to Survive, which is Chapter 5, in the online book. The students will create a habitat in the shoe box that you sent in next week. I will provide them with items such as sand, rocks, “grass”, shells for the habitat they pick. They will need to bring in plastic animals or DRAW animals for their habitat. I do have some “wild animals” and some sea life that I bought from Walmart.
