What Did We Learn This Week?

Language Arts

This week in spelling, we practiced words that remain the same when adding ed and ing. In grammar, we reviewed adjectives and adding er/ est when comparing 2 nouns. The rest of the week, we concentrated on editing and writing our final drafts of our autobiographies. Wait until you read what the children hope to achieve in their futures! You will get a good laugh!

Math

We explored the customary and metric systems of measurement this week. We focused on length of different items and measured in centimeters and inches. It was fun measuring with rulers!! Then, on Friday, we had a blast with munchy math as we measured licorice!! Yummy!!

Science

In Science this week we had a lot of fun! First, we did an art project where we made a camouflaged animal of our choice after we learned about different animal defenses. During our media time, we then recorded ourselves telling clues about the animals we made on an app called Show Me. Mrs. London then created a QR code for each of us. We are going to hang them in the hall so everyone can use their QR Reader App to hear us giving our clues when they look at our pictures! We thought this was really COOL!


We also learned about the 5 animal kingdoms this week: mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and fish. We learned that they are all vertebrates (animals with backbones). It was fun reading about these animals and listing 4 interesting facts about each one. Then we sorted animals into the different kingdoms.


Please note I will have a Science Tutorial on Tuesday, May 12 at 3:20 and the Science test on Vertebrates and Habitats will be Wednesday, May 13. We will start reviewing next week and I will also start sending the science folder home to review as well.

Hebrew

Dear 2nd grade parents,

This was a review week. We practiced and drilled our Cursive Hebrew letters.

We also worked in our Shalom books, read stories and completed relater pages.

Please encourage your student to practice Hebrew at home with this fun app:
