Spotlight on 2nd Grade!

Mrs. Dawdy's Class

Week of April 25 - April 29

Hello Parents!

Please read the sections below to see what's going on in the life of our class!

Working with Words

The students will be focusing on “all” (such as ball), “ow” (such as show) and “ool” (such as stool) sounds this week. There will be a spelling test on Friday. These words will be on the test: wouldn’t, shouldn’t, couldn’t, doesn’t, wasn’t.

Reading

The students will be reading Truman’s Aunt Farm. While reading this book they will work on the skill of homophones as well as how characters respond to major events (cause/effect). They will take a test over cause/effect on Friday.

Math

The stars will continue learning more about shapes this week. They will learn more about 3-D shapes as well as creating and dividing shapes. After their test, they will dive more into shapes, fractions, and time.

Writing

The students will continue Narrative writing this week. This week we will focus on examining author’s purpose as well as editing and revising their stories. In grammar, we will be working on homophones.
