SJV Fun Run is THIS Friday!
The fundraising goal for 2nd grade is $300. This is an average of $50 per student.
Students need to come to school in their P.E. uniforms. We decided as a class that our theme would be American soldiers. We will put some camouflage and American flags on our faces with face paint. If you would like to help with our theme, please bring in face paint on Thursday. We need green, brown, black, red, white, and blue. Also, if you are interested in helping us get ready for the Fun Run, please let Ms. Wright know by Thursday. Thanks!
Reading: We are starting our first unit in our reading books. The theme for this unit is Kindness. The first story we will be reading is called Because of You. We will be learning vocabulary words and working on comprehension skills with this story. There will be a test over the story on Friday; however, it will not be for a grade. This test will allow students and parents an opportunity to see how the tests look and how they are graded.
Language: We are learning about topic sentences. We are also learning about the different kinds of sentences and correct punctuation for each kind.
Spelling: The first spelling test will be on Friday. Spelling homework is given every Monday (or the first day of the school week) and is due every Friday (or the last day of the school week).

Math: We are continuing to practice doubles facts. A 2-minute timed test over doubles facts will be on Wednesday. A written test will be on Thursday. It will include concepts that have been practiced on the practice and homework pages. These concepts include: patterns, telling one more and one less than a number, telling time to the hour, finding missing numbers on a hundred number chart, and doubles facts.
Religion: We are learning about the Blessed Trinity.
Science: We are learning about the life cycle of a plant and will be planting our own seeds this week.
