Primary 2 Newsletter



January 14, 2019

Dear Families,

Primary 2 would really like snow! Guided reading folders will go home today. Please remember to have your child read and then complete the log with your initials. If your child is reading a chapter book just log the pages that were read.

In Science, students are continuing to work and study land forms. They have each been assigned a land form and are currently researching and writing paragraphs. They are having fun using the IPADS to obtain their information.

In Social Studies, the students are continuing their discussions on Martin Luther King, Jr. They have learned that by talking out problems they can find ways to best solve differences in the classroom. The kids also made peace signs and wrote concrete poems! We are continuing our unit on maps. Students have discussed the continents and oceans and are now going to scale it down to mapping our communities.

In Writing, we have started our unit on Donald Crews. We have read Freight Train and Big Momma's. The students have made many connections, especially with the story Big Momma's, because it is about Donald Crews as a child visiting his grandmother on a farm!

In Math, the second graders have finished the mid module assessment for Module 4. They will continue on in this module using different strategies to add and subtract larger 2 and 3 digit numbers. First grade will also continue to add and subtract, but with smaller numbers!

Have a great week! There is no school on Monday!
