Primary 2 Newsletter
March 9, 2020
We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Spelling packets are due this week. Please make sure that your child completes all activities plus the practice test. Primary 2 will be having a healthy green St. Patrick’s Day party on Tuesday, March 17h. A letter went home last week. If you are interested in being a Mystery Reader, please let us know!
In Social Studies, students are starting a unit on Spring. We will be writing poems and completing projects to celebrate this new season! We will also be discussing the history of St. Patrick’s Day and where exactly the story of the leprechaun originated from.
In Writing, Primary 2 is finishing up responding to their pen pals. They are just so excited for our visit in June! They will continue to practice writing friendly letters in Reading Street as well. In celebration of Dr. Seuss, the students wrote about how they would help the Lorax save our world! They will be displayed in the hallway!
In Math, second grade is adding and subtracting three digit numbers. They are using the algorithm and the tables this week.
In STEM/Science, Primary 2 will be designing our Leprechaun traps. We will be collecting our materials this week (from our classroom and Mrs. Cluff's garage!) and construction has begun! Primary 2 will be writing how they plan to catch our tricky, little Leprechaun friend.
