Ms. Brown - Jordan
Mrs. Brumbelow - Madi

We will also continue to take our math facts tests. The state expectation for second grade is that the students know these facts with automaticity. The students are using the program FASSTMath at school to practice each day.
Language Arts & Social Studies
We will be reading the nonfiction story, Alvin Ailey Kids and focusing on the comprehension strategy of summarizing. We will also spend some time working with alliteration and learning how to use a thesaurus to find synonyms and antonyms.
In Social Studies, the students will be learning about Thanksgiving facts and will get a chance to "board" the Mayflower with their classmates.
Notes from the Teachers
Our next science unit is health and we would love for your to help us by bringing in some grocery store flyers. The students will be cutting the pictures of food items out and use them in an activity.
