Second Grade Swag!
December 7th - December 11th
What We Are Learning This Week
Language Arts: Our story of the week will be How To Catch Santa by Jean Reagan. Through this new holiday book, we will use ideas to make and confirm predictions, describe characters, and study nonfiction text. In writing, we will have a strong focus on writing a short letter, transition words and capitalization/punctuation in the salutation and closing of letters. Our spelling rule for this week is vowel patterns -o, -oa, and -ow. We will have our spelling test on December 11th. Please be sure to practice with your child.
Social Studies: We will continue our study on Holidays around the World! We will travel to France, Sweden and Germany to learn all about their winter holidays!
Math: We will begin to look at aspects of financial literacy. Some topics we will cover are how large amounts of money can be saved over time, understanding that saving money is an alternative to spending money, and distinguish between deposits and withdrawals.
Science: We will continue to learn about the moon and the different moon phases.
