Current Learning:

Fundations: We will continue Unit 10 and take the Unit test this week (2 weeks).
Students will read and spell words with ai an ay, using spelling option procedure
to spell words with a /a/ sound. Students will also be introduced to the concept
of homophones using definitions to support the correct spelling based on its
meaning. For example: (main, mane).

The trick words for this unit are:


Week 1: great, country, away
Week 2: America, school, thought
 PLEASE make sure you are practicing these words and patterns with your
child every night. This will support them when they READ and WRITE!! It’s
SO important!

Math: Unit 6- Geometry: This week, our focus will be on discovering the AREA of
shapes with the use of manipulatives such as tiles, geoboards and pattern
blocks.

Writing: Last week, we were unable to begin our new writing unit because of the
AMAZING work the students did with creating our own country for our second
grade Olympics!! Therefore, this week we will begin our Informative writing.
Students will go through the process of the Scientific Method. They will pose
questions, research, form a hypothesis, test experiments that focus on force and
motion, and analyze their results. I love this unit! It has a strong focus on inquiry
and science!

Social Studies: We had so much fun last week creating our OWN country! All
students joined a team of their choice to create the make-up of our country.
These groups included; geography/maps, culture/climate, and flag design. Ask
your child about their creative ideas on The Lost Island!

Second Grade Olympics: Our four-second grade classes in the Blue hallway will
be participating in several Olympic events! We created our country and now it’s
time to compete! On Friday, we began the events in our classroom with Long
Jump! Students estimated the distance of their jumps and then measured with
multiple tools such as yardsticks, unifix cubes, straws and popsicle sticks.

Have a GREAT week!
