Second Grade Swag!
December 14th - December 18th
What We Are Learning This Week
Language Arts: Our story of the week will be Who's That Knocking on Christmas Eve? by Jan Brett. Through this new holiday book, we will use ideas to make and confirm predictions, describe characters, and study nonfiction text. In writing, we will have a strong focus on writing a short letter, transition words and capitalization/punctuation in the salutation and closing of letters. Our spelling rule for this week is compound words. We will have our spelling test on December 18th. Please be sure to practice with your child.
Social Studies: We will continue our study on Holidays around the World! We will learn about Kwanzaa, Hanukkah and New Years!
Math: This week will will continue with our unit on financial literacy. We will look at the terms consumer and producers and how we can calculate the cost of making items.
Science: This week our focus will be on natural and man made resources. We will define the terms and give examples of each type of resource.
