Second Grade Newsletter November 9, 2018 Reading/Language/Science-This week the students worked on writing their animal research presentations. It was a lot of hard work! Students had to go through resources to find facts and information about their animal. After they found the facts, then they wrote it and typed it into a speech which they will present for our families on Friday, November 16 (Mrs. Murphy’s class is from 10:00-11:00 am and Mrs. Jastrzab’s class is from 1:00-2:00 pm) Please plan on attending--You don’t want to miss this exciting second grade event! Spelling-This week we had no words due to focusing on our Animal Research Projects. We will have new words sent home on Monday, November 12 and the test will be on Friday, November 16. Math- This week we wrapped up chapter 3 and took the test Tuesday. We started chapter 4 this week, which is 2 digit addition. Please practice basic addition and subtraction facts with your child at home—students should have their basic facts memorized. Have a good grasp on basic facts will help greatly with this new chapter. A great website that we use to practice our facts is XtraMath. If you don’t want to use a website, flashcards are another excellent way to memorize the facts. *Remember you can log into www.thinkcentral.com if your child is having difficulty with a concept. There are videos on the website that show you step-by-step instructions. **This past week we reviewed Chapter 4, Lessons 1 and 2 if you are trying to look up the lessons online** Social Studies: We discussed local and state governments and Election Day.
