What is going on?

Reading: This week second graders will learn to distinguish the topic from the main idea of a nonfiction text.

Writing: This week we will focus on letter writing. Students will be learning the parts of a letter and how to write with a purpose in mind.

Spelling and Grammar: Spelling words this week: begin, close, door, girl, leave, open, slow, upon-next week's words

Grammar lessons include commas in the letter writing: date, greeting, and closing.

Science: As we continue to explore the differences between natural and manmade resources, we will move into the differences between fresh and saltwater. Students will learn where our water comes from and how we can help to conserve our natural resources.
