Reading : Our Reading Goals For The Week

This week is a review week. We will be reviewing the following skills in reading:

  1. Cause & Effect

  3. Repetition & Word Choice

Spelling: Our Spelling Pattern for the week

This week we are focusing on words with the patterns -thr, -shr and -squ.

Science: Our Science Goal For The Week

We are writing to tell you about our next Science unit called Animal Characteristics (Designing Model Membranes. Over the next few weeks, students will be learning how we can prove that animals have physical characteristics and behaviors that help them survive.

Throughout this unit, students will show their learning by:

  • What is necessary for life?
  • What effect do people have on the environment?
  • How can living things be so different, yet so alike?

We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. You can support your child’s learning by talking with your child about this unit and encouraging her/him to ask questions and think hard.

We are looking forward to seeing our second graders bloom during this unit!
