We've worked hard & had some fun...

read all about the things we've done! 12/11/14


Your child did complete our Unit 12 Review spelling test today. Our new list will not be sent home until Friday, January 9th! We will not have a spelling test next week!


This week in writing, your child developed a new experiment to plan & conduct. Ask your child about this new experiment! This is our final lab report, before we begin writing informational books that relate to forces and motion!

Reading & Language Arts Skills

We have been reviewing verbs, which we learned about as first graders. We are gearing up to expand our knowledge of verbs as second graders! Next week, we will look at verb tenses (past, present, and future), as well as irregular past tense verbs.

In reading, we are reading about the scientific method, which we have been learning as we write like scientists. We are also focusing on comparing & contrasting.


In math this week, we focused on telling time the nearest 5 minutes. Today your child is bringing home a matching/memory game to keep at home! Your child is also bringing home a clock that was made at school earlier in the week. I have encouraged everyone to practice setting the hands on the clock and reading the time to the nearest 5 minutes. Your child could also practice writing the time, as we have been doing at school!
