SECOND GRADE NEWSLETTER               WEEK #28              March 24, 2016

Dear Parents and Guardians,   

            The weeks are flying by so quickly!  Holy Week is upon us!   

            In Religion this week, students completed Chapter 16 and dove right into Chapter 17 which continues to focus on concepts related to Mass and the Eucharist.  Students learned to identify important objects, words, and people who play a role in the church using photographs.  We will use these when we return from break to play a friendly game of bingo.  We attended Mass on Tuesday and an All School Prayer Service today. 

            In its literature studies, students continued their group reading of chapter stories including, Caleb’s Story by Patricia MacLachlan.  We also read aloud the Japanese themed book titled, Grandfather’s Journey by Allen Say and continued read from our current read-aloud titled, Stuart Little by E. B. White. Please remind your student that the point goal for the Fourth Quarter will remain at 10 points!  A final AR report for the quarter will be sent home with the Third Quarter report card on Friday, April 8th.

            In Health this week, students learned a bit about safety at school and at home.  They also discussed car and bus safety. 

            In Math, students worked in their first chapter in geometry which focused on line parts and curves.  Students also took their multiplication and subtraction timed tests this week on Tuesday and Thursday.  The fact benchmark for this week was (x5).  Remember, students must pass their test with a score of 90 or higher to move on to the next test.  On Tuesday, April 5th, your student should be starting (x6) of their multiplication facts if they are right at the benchmark.  It’s important to review these facts on a nightly basis for your student to move ahead each week.  Once they have completed all the subtraction fact tests successfully, students will move on to the multiplication facts and then on to division.

            In Social Studies, students continued their reading of Chapter 4 focusing on culture.  They also took a Chapter 4 Vocabulary Quiz today.

            In Science, the class continued to learn about plants and animal life.

Third Quarter progress reports will be sent home on Friday, April 8th.  A copy of your student’s Star Reading results will be sent home at that time.

                        That’s it for this week!  Have a blessed Easter and Easter Break ahead! 

                                                                                                            Sincerely,

                                           Miss Costello
