We’ve been having a wonderful time reading and writing fables, folktales and fairy tales the past few weeks. We have finished publishing our fractured fairy tale this week, and they will be on display at the OPEN HOUSE this Thursday, June 1st before and after school.
Religion: We have been studying the 7 sacraments with the meaning of each and a symbol to remind us of the sacrament. Also, booklets are studied in the classroom every week and then come home every Friday to take to Mass and follow along in addition to the meaning of the gospels.
Science: States of Matter Unit (solids, liquids and gases). We’ll be doing explorations of solids and liquids for our 2nd grade standards. Your child is invited to do an extra credit JELLO project due this Friday. Your child will get to see all three states of matter while making the yummy treat for your family. I hope you can do this fun activity together!
Social Studies: We’re making a Flat Stanley book to document Flat Stanley’s travels this year.
Writing: Persuasive writing – What’s your favorite candy? The 2nd graders will write a persuasive paragraph to convince their classmates to vote for their candy. We’ll share and vote for the class’ favorite.
MAP Tests and STAR reading test: The results will be with your child’s report card this is issued on the last day of school.
OPEN HOUSE: This Thursday, June 1st 7:45-8:15 and 3:00-3:30. Come see the 2nd Graders’ communities, Flat Stanley projects, poetry books, fractured fairy tales, and the All-Star posters during the year!
The year is ending of being an All-Star student in second grade. Your child has learned a lot this year, and I thank you for all your support.
Have a great summer,
Mrs. Pat Hendrickson
