This Week in 2nd Grade
8/30 Language Quiz
8/31 Religion Test
9/1 Reading Test, Spelling Test
9/4 Labor Day-No School
Reading: We started our first unit in the textbook this week. The theme of the unit is Kindness. Our first story is Because of You. A test over the story will be given on Friday. This first test will not count as a test grade. I will grade it like a normal test; however, it will be used as practice so that students can see what a second grade reading test is like. Next week’s test will be taken for a grade.
Spelling: Test on Friday
mild, care, pilot, lady, bake, time, sale, ride, able, king, apron, final, quite, quiet, share
Language: We are reviewing the four types of sentences: statement, question, command, exclamation. A quiz over these will be given on Wednesday.
Math: We are learning how to add 3 or more addends and will begin working on subtraction this week.
Religion: We are finishing up the first two chapters on God and the Blessed Trinity. A test will be given on Thursday.
Social Studies: This week we are learning about communities and the three main kinds of communities: rural, urban, and suburban. We will also be comparing communities of the past to those we live in today.
