We are also beginning a new home reading program to finish off the last two months. A note will be coming home with your child today explaining this!
See below for current happenings in 2W!
Language Arts– We continue to work on various reading and writing activities. During writing activities, emphasis has been on checking over our work before handing it in to check for proper capitalization, punctuation and sentence sense.
Spelling lists will continue to come home on Monday. Check out the following link for creative ways to practice spelling at home!
Keep reading at home and bringing in those reading leaves!
Math –We are in the process of finishing up Patterning and will begin our Measurement unit in the near future. By the end of the measurement unit, students will be able to:
- Relate the number of days to a week and the number of months to a year in a problem-solving context
- Relate the size of a unit of measure to the number of units (limited to nonstandard units) used to measure length and mass (weight)
- Compare and order objects by length, height, distance around, and mass (weight), using nonstandard units, and make statements of comparison
- Measure length to the nearest nonstandard unit by using multiple copies of a unit and using a single copy of a unit
- Demonstrate that changing the orientation of an object does not alter the measurements of its attributes
Science – We will beginning our next unit, Hot and Cold Temperatures this week. Check out the link below for some online games related to temperature.
Social– We have a Teacher’s Pet field trip on Friday, April 27th. Please ensure the blue form comes back to school by Monday, April 16th. We require 4 parent volunteers for our morning session.
