Math: This week in math we wrapped up our geometry study of polygons and fractions. Students completed a small geometry assessment and will begin studying time the week after break. If there is a chance over you holiday to practice reading an analog clock, your second grader can get in some good practice.
Reading: Finishing up our nonfiction reading unit means we will begin a new study in January. We will begin our character study moving into books with strong characters and thinking about how characters change in books.
Writing: It was a week of celebrating as students put the finishing touches on their informational books and celebrated their hard work with others. When your child’s book or books come home have them read it to you and share all of the new strategies they tried for elaborating and using expert lingo!
Sci/Soc St: Adding on to our weather study we looked at the tools and scale used to measure wind. Students made their own anemometer in Science Lab and learned about the Beaufort Scale. Check out the picture to learn more about this scale.
As we are currently studying place value, please try the lessons listed under Place Value heading. Be aware that in grade two, we're working with numbers up to 1,000. A good place to start is M.1
Information From Our Nurses
There are students in your child’s class who have nut allergies. A child with nut allergy can develop mild or severe reactions if they come in contact with the said allergen. Please take note of the following measures:
· Please be considerate of your child’s classmates when sending in snacks (if possible, to avoid sending any nuts or nut products)
· Children should be encouraged to wash their hands before and after lunch, prior to returning to the classroom to avoid any cross-contamination.
· For any special occasions, please be reminded that any food brought in to the class should be nut free.
