Mrs. McGeorge's Super Second Grade

Week of May 2, 2016

What We're Learning

Reading and Writing

We are continuing with our poetry unit, mostly focusing this week on concrete poems. We are reviewing grammar, punctuation, and spelling rules we have learned this year. We are also starting some end-of-the-year reading testing this week.


Math

This week, we will spend our math time reviewing telling time. Second graders should end the school year being able to tell time to five-minute increments, but my hope is that we'll be able to tell it to the minute! We are also reviewing other skills learned this year.


Science

This week, we are reviewing states of matter. We will discuss what causes objects to change states and we will also play around with mixtures of different states of matter.
