Our Field Trip to the Children's Museum!!!
This week we celebrated St. Patrick's Day!!!
3rd 9 week Report Cards!
We are planting a tree at TCE!!!
Last week we read about all the ways trees help! They provide homes for animals, they provide food for animals, they provide us resources we use, they provide shade on a sunny day, and let's face it...they're BEAUTIFUL!!!
This week we finished our tree research, shared what we learned to our class, then we decided we would like to plant a Tulip Tree here at TCE! This week we also took a nature walk to try to determine the best place for our new tree! Next week we'll bring in Mr. King to help dig our hole then PLANT IT!!!
As you know, trees can be expensive. If you'd like to send in money to help cover the cost, that would be awesome. Don't feel obligated though...we'll still plant it either way! I'm so excited to help make TCE even MORE beautiful!

We are Learning...
We will continue our study of traditional literature. We will be studying different versions of fairy tales, fables, and folktales. We will be comparing and contrasting different versions and we will also discuss the theme of each version.
We will continue our study on geometry. This week we learned the difference between plane shapes and geometric solids. We also started exploring how many sides, edges and vertices plane shapes have. We'll look more at geometric solid figures next week!
We will continue working on our current writing pieces.
We will continue learning about lifecycles! We will learn what a cycle is, and identify cycles that occur everyday!
Word study in 2nd grade includes spelling, phonics, and vocabulary development. We will be focusing on 15 new vocabulary words. Those words are: cycle, seed, antenna, germinate, seedling, bulb, cone, bud, roots, photosynthesis, reproduce, disperse, pollinate, sapling, and adaptation.
