Play, Learn, & Grow Together
"Children learn more from what you ARE than what you teach"
Also, we are starting our geometry unit this week. Throughout this unit the kids will develop ideas about 2-dimensional and 3-dimensions shapes and their characteristics and attributes. A major idea of this geometry unit is that shapes can be combined or decomposed to make other shapes. When solving numerical problems, students compose and decompose numbed to make them more manageable. In the same light, solving geometric portables often involve understanding how to pull shapes apart and put them together so they can be viewed in new ways. The hope is that when 2nd graders can see how a regular hexagon can be constructed from six equilateral triangle, they are developing a foundation that will help them understand the properties of a hexagon's angles, sides, and area.

A Peek at This Week!
** Spelling---if your child only gets 1 or 2 wrong on Spelling Pre-Tests, look for a different spelling list in their BEE Binder. These words will still follow the spelling rule of the week, but be a little more challenging.
