Mr. Judge's 2nd Grade Telegraph!!

1/11/16...Vol. 16


I hope everyone is well. Our first week back from break proved to be a success! The kids worked hard and as a result, each child's reading score I've tested (so far) has grown at LEAST 2 reading levels!!! Please be sure your child gets to be on time and has healthy food as we have additional reading assessments this week! Please note with the cold weather, send your child to school with weather appropriate clothing (long sleeves/some kind of jacket). I don't want the kids to start getting sick!

What's Happening This Week!

2nd Grade is going to be chock full of action this week!! For Science/Social Studies the class will learn more about American Symbols - identifying the significance of the flag, the Great Seal, and roles and responsibilities of citizens. For math, the class will work with measurements and the relationship between the size of the unit and the object being measured; comparing measurements. For spelling/phonics, review all CORE words; review on punctuation, use of commas, apostrophes, and making plurals. In reading, continued work with Fables, Myths, and Legends For writing, the focus will be about folktales.
