2nd Grade Morning Class Prayer

The sun is rising in the sky,
thank you God that you and I
can be together for this day.
Guide me as I work and play.

Our before lunch prayer can be found in the front of the student planner:

Bless us, O Lord, and these your gifts, which we are about to receive from your goodness, through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

Lesson 41: Sight Word Test - I sent a list home a couple of weeks ago with words students needed to know how to spell and read. They will be tested on these words Friday, October 27th

Spelling List #8: ham. plot, stamp, grit, frog, thump, crash, tuck, theft, rich, shin, dart, storm, bus, lost, turn, curb, burst, hurt, burn

Our next test will be Thursday, October 26th If students get all 20 words correct they are finished with spelling for the week. If the student misses any words, he/she will need to write each word 5x each Thursday night, attach it to the spelling test, and retake it on Friday. All spelling tests will need to be signed Thursday night and returned Friday. I will send each spelling list, along with notebook paper, and the tic- tac toe- board home on the Friday before the next school week. Students will need to return the homework tic –tac-toe board with written assignments attached each Thursday in red folder. This gives families a chance to choose when they can complete the assignments. So you have from Friday night-Wednesday night to complete a tic-tac-toe 3 in a row. Make sure that a parent has initialed the 3 in a row spelling activities that your child has completed. Please contact me with any questions!

We will cpntinue 2/3 digit addition with and without regrouping.

Students will continue taking timed tests. Students will have 1 minute and 30 seconds to complete 25 math problems. Each student will begin with addition 1's. If he/she completes the 25 problems and they are all correct he/she will move up to the next test. Students will continue working on each level until it is mastered.

We will also complete A.M. Remember each student must complete 10 math objectives in A.M. each 9 weeks.

English: We will continue nouns. We will focus on singular possessive nouns this week.

Reading/Science: We will learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin this week. We will read the book Life Cycle of the Pumpkin. We will also read a scholastic news article "Giant Pumpkin." Skills: plant life cycle, main idea/details, comprehension
On Friday, we will carve a Jack-O-Lantern together as a class.
