Spotlight on 2nd Grade!

Mrs. Dawdy's Class

What's Going On!

Hello Parents!

Please read the sections below to see what's going on in the life of our class!

Working with Words

The students will be focusing on “it” (such as fit), “et” (such as get) and “th” (such as that) sounds this week. There will be a spelling test on Friday. These words will be on the test: both, soon, came, second, own.


Students will begin reading a new story today about pen pals around the world. While reading this they will focus on finding the main topic as well as text features.


The stars will continue learning about measurement. They will have to measure things correctly (endpoint to endpoint), measure with centimeters and meter sticks and estimate length.


The students will begin writing informative/explanatory pieces. They will use facts, definitions, and photos to write explanatory pieces.


  • · I sent home field trip permission slips on Friday. I’m sorry for the short notice on that but the opportunity to go on this trip came so suddenly! Please turn in the yellow lunch form immediately and the $1 by Friday. Thanks for your cooperation!
  • · Reading logs are due on Friday!
  • · Just a reminder, if I send home math homework from Engage NY (our math curriculum) I only want the students to work on it for about 10-15 minutes. If you see them getting frustrated beyond that, please wait and turn in the homework in the morning. I will help them and go over it at that time.
