Time flies when you are having fun!

It’s so hard to believe that this is the last weekly report for the second graders.   To wrap up this great year, we are finishing up some projects and units in reading and math. We’re looking forward to fun days ahead and celebrating at Lake Charlotte on the last day of school. But first, tune in to KEYL on TUESDAY, MAY 27 at 8:30 for Open Mic. I am in charge of the Relay for Life and will have 12 special guests on the radio with me that morning.  Very exciting!!! In closing, it has been a great year, and I’ve been blessed to teach your children.  I can only hope I have taught them as much as they have taught me. Enjoy your summer!

When we weren’t busy singing and practicing for the spring concert…

…we did some math review on adding and subtracting ones and tens to numbers.  We also practiced 2-digit addition, doubling and cutting numbers in half.  In reading, we are writing a paragraph about what we learned on our field trip to Lake Carlos last Friday. In science, the first and second graders are experimenting with what happens to gummy bears when they soak in different liquids. Please join us next Wednesday for the last second grade mass. We will be preparing it with the kindergarten and first graders.  The students will also be signing “Hail Mary, Gentle Woman” during the mass.  Have a wonderful week!

Grade 2

I would like to start off by saying how INCREDIBLY PROUD I am of the second graders who received First Communion on Sunday.  Thank you, also, to the moms and dads that helped them prepare for this special day.  They are all such blessings in my life.  In religion, we are going to be reading about how it is our job to carry on the work of Jesus.  In reading, we are taking the Theme 5 test. We are going to go back to doing some journal writing and learning more about how to divide words into syllables.  In math, we took the Unit 7 test and will start Unit 8 which focuses on fractions.  Please remember that we are going on our field trip on Friday.  Students need a bag lunch and need to wear good walking shoes.  Have a great week!

Congratulations and blessing to our First Communicants!

We’ve almost made it!

Please keep the second graders in your prayers as eight students will be receiving their First Communion this Sunday! They have been working very hard and will be ready for their special day. In reading, the students are reviewing the skills learned in the family unit. I’m hoping their Lucky Charm stories will finally be finished. Math skills this week are finding patterns in doubles and halves, measuring arm spans and long jumps, finding the middle value and frequency distributions. In science, first and second graders read about Tree-mendous Trees.  Have a wonderful week!

SPRING IS FINALLY HERE!

I’m loving it! This week in second grade we were busy with leading the Stations of the Cross on Monday and preparing the mass on Tuesday! In reading, we are beginning a new story, Carousel.  Spelling words this week focus on the “Cry Baby” rule. Words with two syllables that end with a long e sound are spelled with the letter y. In math, we are exploring the beginning of multiplication and division. We are taking STAR tests this week, so your child may have a new AR level. In science, the first and second graders are finishing their test on space. In writing, I am hoping to move on to the prewriting the middle of our lucky charm story. Have a great week!!!

This week in second grade…

we are praying and praying and praying for spring!!!  As we continue through this season of Lent, we are discussing how God gives us what we need, even though it may not always be what we think we need. In reading, we are taking the Theme 4 test. In math, we are starting a new unit and will be learning how to subtract 2-digit numbers. Our new writing unit for this month is about having luck. One of the biggest accomplishments this week so far is that our class project is finished for the auction in April!!! Have a wonderful week!
