Second Grade Room 214

Just another CUIP Schools weblog site

Week of October 16th

Happy October Room 214 families- progress reports went home last week and we are mid way through the 1st quarter.  A field trip form was sent home for October 31st field trip.  More information about the trip will be sent home this week.  Students will perform with Señor Walters at the October National Hispanic Heritage Assembly on 10/27. He asks that all students wear red, blue and white that day for their performance.

This week we will…

Reading Workshop- study authors purpose and practice retelling.  We will practice these strategies during our read alouds, guided reading, and independent reading.

Writing Workshop- publishing our final drafts for personal narrative and having a publishing party.  Students have been working hard revising and editing their stories.

Math- we will cover 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, and 2.7.  Children received a hard copy book for their homelinks today.  I have pulled out the first pages and stapled them together to go home.  This has the table of contents, parent letters you have already received, and a few homelinks the students have already done.  When the students open their homelinks today to rip out 2.4 they will be exactly at that page and more organized.  They can do any the old homelinks I sent home today for extra practice.  Another strategy for practice would be counting money with your child.  Kids need extra practice especially counting quarters.

Social Studies:  We will continue studying government.  Specifically what are the 3 branches and the difference between local, state and national.

Science:  This week we will start working on dams.  We will investigate how to make them the most safe for humans to live.
