Newsletter week of 2-19-19

Posted by: Cynthia Martie | February 18, 2019 | No Comment |

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend. I sure did with our grandsons coming to visit.

In a few weeks the students will create a habitat using a shoe box. If you have any empty shoeboxes that you could donate, it would be greatly appreciated.

Please note that we are collecting Boxtops for Education. You can send them in with your student to give to me.

I can no longer read the science and social studies benchmark tests to the students. I sent a link to our science book online with log in instructions in your email newsletter. Click on the Grade 2 with audio book (A little microphone is on it.) and the site will read the selection aloud to your student as he/she reads to themselves.

We will work on the following skills in Reading this week:
• Drawing conclusions in nonfiction
• Content vocabulary
• contractions

In Science this week, the students will start on the Life Cycle of a plant. This is Chapter 4 in the online book.

This week in Math the students will begin our unit on money. It would help if you could practice counting money at home with the students. Some students are still struggling with adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers with “carrying” and “borrowing”. 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 learn famous American symbols such as the Washington Monument and the Statue of Liberty.

Mrs. Cindy Martie
