PILGRIM GR 2 ELA and MATH

Update: Nov 13, 2015

ELA NEWS:

This week we read some motivational stories and used words like "encourage' and "inspire". We played with "ay" and "ai" rhymes, found some meaningful quotes on the internet, and wrote some great poems. We finished The Witches, and have begun to look at fables and folk tales.

Next week, we'll continue with fables and look at those weird "igh" vowel sounds a bit more closely.

MATH UPDATE: UNIT 3

So what's this IXL?

This week your child came home with a username and password to sign into IXL. This site provides a step by step skill building program for ELA and MATH. It provides practice individualized for your child and offers yet another way for learning. The BEST part of this is that you can get a FREE download for an app on your tablet! Set up a schedule for your child to use this as part of a routine at home (and school will be doing the same!)

Shopping Trip on MONDAY, Nov 16!

Monday's math class will offer a special opportunity to use our "math skills", menu planning, and collaboration through a service project at JEWEL. Each group will have $25 to spend for our HOLIDAY MEAL BAG project sponsored by Pilgrim Kids Care. Let's see how many MEAL BAGS we can share with the Lincoln Square Friendship Center!
