Mrs. Bolte – 2nd Grade

Second Grade News

March 30 – April 3

Memory:  

We will not be doing memory while we’re out of school.

Religion: We will have a test over Unit 7 on Wednesday.  The students have their books in their envelopes.  Please review the stories and study the study guide that was sent home in the envelope.  The test will be posted on Google Classroom. Please see the directions for Google Classroom below.

Language Arts:  This week we will be reading two fairy tales called Jack and the Beanstalk & Jackie and the Beanstalk.   We will have a test over the skills that go along with our stories on Friday (April 3).  I am also going to include a list of our vocabulary words. Please go over these words and make sure your child knows the meanings of them.  They should be able to use the vocabulary word in a sentence, tell what it means, or act it out. The vocabulary words will be in a section of our reading test, just like they normally are.

* We will not be doing AR while we’re not in school, but try to read 15-20 minutes per day. 

Vocabulary words:  swipe, whacked, whimpered, plenty, adorable, oversized, hauling, glanced

Spelling:  This week’s words are ou & ow words and review words.  Please have your child do a minimum of 3 activities from their tic-tac-toe board.  At this time, we will not be having a weekly spelling test.

cow            house            town            shout           down           mouse         found           loud

brown        ground          pound         flower          grew            spoon          boost            threw

Handwriting:  Please do pages listed below

Math:  We will continue Topic 12:  Measuring Length. I feel that the upcoming lessons are topics that parents should feel comfortable doing, but please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions.  I have posted help videos for each lesson on Google Classroom, if you need them. Also, please continue to practice counting money and telling time with your child at home.  These are skills that require lots of practice and repetition. And… please remember to do Xtra Math or practice math facts at home. If the kids could do 10 minutes a day, that would be great.  Homework for the week is…

 Monday: Lesson 12-2

Tuesday: Lesson 12-3

Wednesday: Lesson 12-4

Thursday: Lesson 12-5

Friday: Lesson 12-6
