Collecting Pinecones for our Seed Bird Feeders!!!
Last week we read about many different kinds of seeds! We have also been talking about life cycles of different animals! The students decided after talking about seeds, that they also can be a source of food for birds and other animals! We collected pinecones and are going to be making bird feeders for the trees outside our classroom. We are going to research HOW we want to design them and WHAT we should put in/on them!
Let's Help Others by Collecting Canned Food Items!!!
TCE Student Council will be having a food drive the week of March 21-25 benefitting the Fall Creek Township Food Pantry. Items can be brought to your child’s classroom and placed in their classroom collection box throughout the week. Below is a list of items that the food pantry is in need of:

We are Learning...
We will continue our study of traditional literature. We will be studying different versions of fairy tales, fables, and folktales. We will be comparing and contrasting different versions and we will also discuss the theme of each version.
We will finish up and review 3 digit addition/subtraction with and without regrouping and begin our study on geometry. Next week we will learn the difference between plane shapes and geometric solids. We will also start exploring how many sides, edges and vertices plane shapes have. We'll look more at geometric solid figures before break as well!
We will continue working on our current writing pieces- Nonfiction and Young Author books.
We will continue learning about lifecycles! We will learn what a cycle is, and identify cycles that occur everyday!
Word study in 2nd grade includes spelling, phonics, and vocabulary development. We will be focusing on 15 new vocabulary words. Those words are: cycle, seed, antenna, germinate, seedling, bulb, cone, bud, roots, photosynthesis, reproduce, disperse, pollinate, sapling, and adaptation.
