Newsletter week of 3-19-19

Posted by: Cynthia Martie | March 17, 2019 | No Comment |

Dear Parents and Guardians,

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:
• Main Idea in non-fiction
• Prefixes un-, re-, pre-, dis-

In Science this week, the students will continue learning about Living Systems. This is Chapter 5, How to Survive, in the online book. And the end of this unit, the students will create a habitat in the shoe box that you sent in. 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.

This week in Math, the students review for the benchmark on Friday. The study guide is being sent home on Monday. 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 continue our unit on maps, globes, continents, oceans, and mountains and rivers in the United States.

Mrs. Cindy Martie
