It is hard to believe that we are well into the 4th quarter and the last few weeks of 2nd grade. I wanted to say a HUGE thank you again for all the gifts/treats/flowers you gave me in honor of teacher appreciation week. It has been an honor to be your child’s teacher this year.
As the year is coming to an end I would appreciate any donations that could be made to our class dojo store for our final shopping event in June. Thank you so much!
Here are the things we will be learning this week:
Math- We will continue to learn about money. This week we will solving money word problems and finding different ways to make the same amount of money using the least amount of coins. Please continue to practice counting money at home. Students are very excited about learning this! Our test on this unit will be this Friday.
Science- This week we are starting our unit on life cycles. Students will be watching larva turn into painted butterflies. They will be marking the changes daily on a calendar. They will also be researching the life cycle of different types of butterflies.
Reading– This week we will continue reading standard RI 2.8 (Author’s Point). Students will be take the test on this standard on Wednesday. We will then begin our unit on folktales and fables (more details on this to come!).
Writing– We finished our writing unit on opinion writing. This week we will begin our writing unit on fairy tales. We will be studying different versions of Jack & the Beanstalk and then students will create their own version of this fairy tale. In the end students will be creating their own iMovie trailers about their story.
Tower of Books-The final tower of books is due on June 12th. The final book tasting will be June 21st at 12:00. Mark your calendars! This will also be a final writing celebration!
