Language Arts-Reading

Reading Focus:

  • We will be continuing our unit: People who make a difference
  • Focus person for this week: Blackbeard
  • We will also be continuing our other two research projects
  • People who make a difference: students will work independently and will study a person who has impacted our word and write a report about him/her
  • Animal Life Cycles: Students will work in pairs to study the life cycles of an animal and create individual projects.

Language Arts-Skill

  • This week we will be focusing on reviewing contractions and possessive nouns. The two often get confused.
  • A way to practice this at home is to give your child a word that is a contraction (I'll, should've, don't, she's, he's) or a possessive noun (Mrs. Bordonaro's, girls', book's) and have your child tell you what it means: she's means she is or Mrs. Bordonaro's means that something belongs to Mrs. Bordonaro.


This Week:

  • Phonics rule for the week: contractions and compound words
  • Word Wall Words: myself, himself, herself, early, later, anything, nothing
  • Remember...If your child needs extra practice, there are lots of resources on our website.


  • We will be wrapping up our unit: Geometry
  • Make sure you are looking for the Symbaloo on the 2nd grade website if your student needs additional practice.
