The week of May 4th:
P.E. and Music
This week in word study, we reviewed homophones, abbreviations, homographs, synonyms, and antonyms. The students learned about word study games that can be found in the 2nd grade websites.
Reminder: If you would like your child to have extra math fact practice, please let me know and I will send Otter Creek practice sheets with a page protector cover. These sheets are for practice with a dry erase marker. Have your child practice one minute timings using the bottom portion of the sheet. The top portion is for practice. If you would like practice sheets for your child, please email me and I will be glad to send the sheets.
