What Did We Learn This Week?

Language Arts

Our spelling rule this week was the sounds of 'oo'. We worked on the next unit in our vocabulary books and continued with pronouns in grammar. We learned about reflexive pronouns and where to properly place me, I, us and we in a sentence. We read a story called Watch Out. Ronald Morgan! about a boy who needed glasses. As an extension of the book, we each designed our own Super Kid Glasses and are in the process of writing a creative 4 paragraph story all about them.


This week in math we reviewed addition word problem clue words (in all, altogether, sum, total) and addition word problems. Then we moved on to practice estimating with addition by first rounding the two addends before solving. We ended the week learning about key words in an estimation word problem (about how many, roughly, approximately).


Dear 2nd grade parents,

In our ARIOT book we practiced the cursive letters כּ, כ, ך (KAF, CHAF and final CHAF).

We learned the verbs: כּוֹתֵב (write), אוֹכֵל (eat), מִסְתַּכֵּל (looking), read a story and worked on fluency in reading.

Please keep reading at home as much as possible.

Shabbat shalom, שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם

Social Studies

This week in social studies this week we started learning about the different landforms and bodies of water. We watched Brainpop Jr., identified landforms/bodies of water on a large map, and made a landform/bodies or water guide with the picture, word, and definition. Next week we will continue to review and then have a landform/bodies of water assessment on Wednesday, January 13.
