Mrs. Dufresne's Second Grade

March 16th - 19th, 2015

Curriculum Notes

In the Reading anthology, we read and compare two selections. In "Little Grunt and the Big Egg" we will predict and infer what happens. In "Mighty Dinosaurs" we will monitor and clarify the text.

In Math, we have a focus on time on digital and analog clocks as well as the concept of a.m. and p.m., picture graphs, bar graphs, and telling and writing.

Our science focus for the next few weeks is "All About the Weather". We will be studying weather, weather changes, and the water cycle.
