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.

Our next test will be Thursday, December 7th. 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 continue shapes. This week we will continue composing/decomposing plane shapes. We will begin 3D/solid shapes.

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 begin antonyms at the end of the week. Antonyms are words with opposite meanings. Example: cold/hot , dry/wet

Reading: We will be reading the book The Legend of the Poinsettia. We will not be taking the vocabulary/comprehension test until Wednesday, Dec. 13th. We have many activities to complete with this book. Skills: cause/effect, story elements
