Slice and Dice News

Mrs. Dufresne's Second Grade - October 12th - 14th

Curriculum Notes

We are working on using doubles to add and subtract and solving word problems in Math. I had hoped to end the unit before MEA weekend, but want to spend more time making sure that students understand comparision problems and word problems that have extra information before ending the unit.

In English Language Arts, we are working on a Reader's Theater and Unit Assessments. There is no spelling this week due to the shortened week.

We are beginning to learn about the seven continents and "Our Place on the Map". I would like to do a buddy project with our fifth grade buddies where we paint pumpkins and map the world. Please send in a pumpkin with your student (medium sized, and taller rather than wider if possible :) by Friday, October 23rd so we can begin work on our globes during the week before Halloween.

Please note that our classroom website has changed. We are now linked directly off the hamilton.schoolwires.net site, under the "teachers" page. Spelling Lists are on there as well as a photo gallery and other information.
