What Did We Learn This Week?

Language Arts

Our spelling rule this week was "bossy r" with /ar/ and /or/ words. In grammar we started learning about action verbs! We had fun acting out an action and having the class guess what it was. We continued to work on our final copies of our creative Super Kid Glasses stories. For comprehension, we learned how to take a test over all of the comprehension skills we had learned this year. After doing one as a whole group, we did our first graded one on our own. We were so excited to officially start cursive this week in our handwriting book. During literacy centers, we worked on finishing our biography dolls and enjoyed doing different activities to learn about the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Math

In math this week we moved onto our next topic: graphing! We first learned about how to make line plots, then we reviewed pictographs and bar graphs. We ended the week starting our own graphing project where we got to pic our own topic, conduct a survey with our classmates to collect data, and then transferred that data onto a graph!

Science

We wrapped up our science unit on Geology this week. We did lots of review to get ready for our test which was on Thursday. We all decided that GEOLOGY ROCKS!

HEBREW

Dear 2nd grade parents,

In Hebrew class, this past week, we took a deep breath and reviewed all the letters we have learned so far:

א, ו, י, נ, ן, ג, ה, ר, ב, ס, ש, ח, ק, ד, כ, ך, ז, מ, ם

We practiced all the Hebrew cursive letters we know, using smart board activities and work sheets. We even had a spelling test.

Here is a great activity to review Hebrew with at home:
