Learning Update

Reading: Students will learn more about non-fiction texts. We will focus on text features and their purposes. This week students will begin their country reports and they will need this background to aid in their research. 

Writing: With the start of a new year, came the start of a new writing unit. The children will be learning more about information writing, specifically, about the kinds of information that scientists are apt to do. They will conduct various experiments to create lab reports. Last week we did our first lab report which incorporated two experiments (changing only one variable). The energy and enthusiasm is high for this new type of writing! 

Spelling: This week, students will focus on the three sounds of the -ed ending. Even though it is a four-day week, we will have Spelling and test on Friday. 

Math: In Chapter 5, students have begun introductory lessons on how to multiply and divide. They will take the chapter test on Tuesday and then we will delve even deeper into multiplication tables of 2, 5 and 10 in Chapter. 6.

Social Studies: This week will kick off country reports! Students were assigned their country last Friday and are ready to begin researching! Stay tuned for more information as this project moves forward.

Final Day Before Holiday Break!

Tuesday, December 19th was a fun-filled day 
for a variety of reasons: 

  • The final day of Advent was hosted by Mrs. Murphy and Ms. Tonkin's classes, where plenty of holiday cheer and spirit was in the air!

  • All of second grade had their Winter Holiday Party! Students played games, made a reindeer headband and were invited into the Holiday Cafe where they were seated for delicious treats like latkes, hot cocoa and a peppermint stick, as well as a game of Dreidel!

  • Check out the link below to view holiday celebrations throughout all of Lower School:

I hope you all have a very relaxing holiday time with plenty of time for family, friends and yourself! Looking forward to a great 2018 in Room 16!!

Happy Holidays!!
