Treasures of the City

Our 2nd graders have been invited to attend Treasures of the City on October 4. We are scheduled to arrive between 6:15 and 6:45. This is a fun night and a great opportunity to learn about our local government. I strongly encourage everyone to try and attend this event! I will be there with my 2nd grade daughter and can't wait to see you all!

What we will learn this week:

Math Workshop: We will be completing Chapter 2 this week on Number Patterns. The students will review on Thursday and take the Chapter 2 assessment on Friday. Be looking for a unit review to come home on Thursday. This is not mandatory homework-but good practice for the test!

Homework: Chapter 2- Lessons 5, 6, 7 and fluency review


Letterland: Our words this week will help us practice the long a and long i sound with Magic e. Look below for the weekly words and sentence. The kids will be tested on Friday.


Writer's Workshop: We will wrap up drafting and begin to practice revising our story.


Reader's Workshop: We will read the story A Tree is Nice and practice visualizing the text. Our vocabulary words this week are: numerous, recreation, shelter, and necessary. We will also continue to meet with our guided reading groups and work on strategies good readers use.


Content: Our unit on Citizenship is coming to a close. We will begin our first science unit this week on Rocks and Soil.
