This Thursday is our field trip to the Mordecai House. If you were one of the chosen chaperones please plan to meet us there at 10:00. We will leave school at 9:30. We will eat lunch when we get back to school. Please pack a hefty snack for your child to eat in the morning before we leave for the field trip. Please have your child wear their field trip shirt. Thanks!
Mrs. Freer has just announced the dates for the 2nd grade performance this year. The program is called “Love the Earth” and will be May 16th at 1:15.
Field Day for Track 3 will be 5/17 from 9-11:30.
Here are the NEW things we will be learning to start off the quarter:
Math— We will be learning about graphing data. This week we will learn about pictographs and bar graphs.
Social Studies- We will be starting our unit on maps. This week we will be learning how to read a map and students will complete a STEM activity where they create a large map on poster board and drive a “car” to various locations on the map using cardinal directions.
Reading– This week we will be learning about cause/effect. Students will study photographs to create different cause/effect scenarios. Students will then practice finding cause/effect relations in passages.
Writing– We are starting our writing unit on opinion writing. Students will learn the difference between a fact and opinion then practice writing “reviews” using their opinion. This week students will be creating a review on their favorite restaurant.
Tower of Books-I will be sending home the FINAL Tower of Books challenge. It will be due on June 12th. The final book tasting will be June 21st at 12:00.
Stay Tuned-April’s sustainable Global Goal is: Life on Land (think Earth Day). 2nd Grade will be collaborating to cultivate a garden outside Mr. Lamanna’s window. We will be needing some donations for this to be a success and will let you know what they are ASAP! Thanks so much!
