2nd Grade News, February 2, 2010
♥ Important Reminders:
Please send 5 pictures of your child to school by Friday, February 5th. We are learning about timelines in Social Studies. We would like for the pictures to go in a progression from birth/baby picture until now. The pictures will be returned to you.
♥ Please continue to send a warm jacket with your child each day. Often times our classrooms are chilly.
♥Social Studies - We are wrapping up our unit on hero’s and the characteristics of real hero’s. We will also be wrapping up our timelines with the photos that you send.
♥Science - We are continuing our unit on living and non-living. This will include both plants and animals. The kids are loving this!!!
♥Language Arts - We are moving into understanding about book reviews and what goes into critiquing a book effectively and constructively. We will consume LOTS of reviews before we branch out on our own. This takes practice.
♥Math – While we continue to get the hang of subtracting with regrouping, we are moving into fractions. Please remember to practice those math facts each evening for 5 minutes. Our goal is for the kids to be able to do 20 simple facts in a minute.
☺Thanks for sharing your children with us each day. They are treasured!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!!!
