2nd grade newsletter February 15, 2018 Reading /English : This week we read the chapter book, Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. The students love Flat Stanley and they especially love our school project in which we mail Stanley to a family member or friend! We completed a short quiz after each chapter and took our vocabulary and book comprehension tests on Thursday. During the week we wrote a friendly letter to the person who we will be sending Flat Stanley to. We reviewed the parts of a friendly letter, as well as introduced students on how to address an envelope to be mailed. We can’t wait to get letters back and see what Stanley did while he was away! Spelling: There was no spelling test this week due to our Flat Stanley unit. Next week, we will have spelling words, but there is no pretest due to having Monday off. Everyone will take the test on Friday, February 23. Spelling words will go home on Tuesday, February 20. Math: We continued with Chapter 7, focusing on money. We reviewed amounts that make one dollar and amounts greater than one dollar. When we return from the holiday weekend, we will start to focus on the time section of this chapter. *Remember to log into www.thinkcentral.com if your child is having difficulty with a concept.
