What is happening in class this week…

Math:  We will wrap up Unit 9 this week and test on Friday.  Students did an end of the year 2nd grade practice test today so I can see what skills they still need practice with.  We are also doing math facts test for addition/subtraction/and multiplication.

Reading:  We wrapped up our series book clubs.  Next week students will choose one book to a complete a book report on- they will need to think about literary language, the lesson, story elements, and summary.

Writing: This last week we looked at three different poem structures- list, conversation, and story.  We also talked a lot about how to pull a metaphor through a whole poem and how to convey feeling. We hope you like the poems the kids took home on Friday!

Social Studies:  This past week we had an excellent presentation on Egypt.  We played chess with Mr. Flynn and made an “anywhere” garden and discussed the importance of planting in a home and neighborhood.

Science:  Our silk worms hatched!  We learned that they LOVE mulberry leaves.  A bunch of our mealworms changed from the pupa stage to a darkling beetle adult.  We will listened to fantastic presentations about insects from students and gardened!  Next week we will dig deeper into silkworms and plants.
