Lemonade Day was a Success!!


The eggs arrived last week and they are in the incubator and doing great. On Monday (Day 6) we candled our eggs and then on Friday (Day 10) we candled our eggs and wow what a change in the growth inside. Ask your child what they observed while we were candling.

Field Day

Field Day will be on Friday, May 20th. The theme this year is "Summer Olympics" and our class choose Venezuela to represent. We will be doing different activities outside for most of the morning so please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather . If you would like your child to wear sunscreen, please apply it before sending him/her to school. Also, if you are interested in volunteering for field day, please fill out the paperwork that was sent home earlier this week and return it as soon as possible. We are looking forward to this fun day!!

We are Learning...


This week we will continue to focus on how to identify the main idea of a story!


We will begin our focus on Measurement and wrap that up at the end of the week!

We will continue our fairy tale writing unit. We are now publishing our final drafts! They are doing a GREAT job!

2nd Graders at Thorpe Creek Elementary will be issued a challenge to reduce, recycle and reuse. Students will be asked to think like a scientist in order to design a tool that meets a specific need. The materials for the tool MUST be reusable. We will wrap this up next week.

Word Study:

Word study in 2nd grade includes spelling, phonics, and vocabulary development. We will be focusing on 15 new vocabulary words. Those words are: reduce, reuse, recycle, engineer, design, environment, pollution, hazardous waste, compost, landfill, biodegradable, energy, disposable, and conservation.
