What Are We Learning? Ask your child to tell you about..

Religion:  finishing our Saint books & 2nd Step SEL lessons, Drawing God book/art project

Math: Trimester 3 Math Test this week!!!


We are using Word Books to help the students learn sight words and vocabulary words to use in their writing. Each student has their own copy that they keep in their desks. Many words are already in the book, but there is also ample room to write any additional words they would like to use in any writing they do, from journal entries, to writing assignments, and even on tests! The goal is to increase their personal lexicons to give them the confidence and tools to go further in their writing with each new writing endeavor.

Handwriting: We have officially finished learning all the uppercase and lowercase letters in cursive!!! Everyone is doing great and working very hard!! I tell the kids everyday I am NOT looking for perfection, but I am requiring effort!! We now have a new additional homework assignment daily, as is appropriate for half way through 2nd grade, and for the practicing their cursive, part of their spelling homework every day will be to write each spelling word 2 times each in cursive on a special worksheet, in addition to completing the usual spelling homework.




Social Studies: 

Note: Science/Social Studies often relate to themes in our Wonders language arts curriculum, except for the occassional lessons/projects relating to holidays or local/national/world history/events, and I love to get in hands on science projects when our schedule allows just for fun!!


Supplies: We could use more tissues, and paper towels!!!

Monday: Gym


Wednesday: Library

Thursdays: Spanish & Art

Please send a cloth napkin or tea towel to cover your child’s desk at snack and lunch time.  Snack should be limited to 1 item that your child is able to open without assistance.
