Newsletter week of 3-25-19

Posted by: Cynthia Martie | March 24, 2019 | No Comment |

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I have sent a link to our science book online with log in instructions in you 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
• homophones

In Science this week, the students will continue learning about Living Systems. This is Chapter 5, How to Survive, in the online book. The students will take a test on this chapter on Friday and 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.

This week in Math the students will learn about temperature and how to read a thermometer. 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 about the mountains and rivers in the United States.
The students will test over this chapter on Thursday.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Cindy Martie
