Week of November 14, 2011
Thank you so much for purchasing books from our class bucket list. They will be a great addition to our classroom library. Again, I appreciate your thoughtfulness.
This week we will become illustrators and authors by publishing our own “Turkey story”. Looking forward to seeing all our creative turkeys!
On Friday November 18, author Michael Anthony Steele will visit MDE. If you would like to purchase one of his books for him to sign, you are free to do so. He will not have books available during his visit.
This Tuesday, your child will take a district benchmark test in math. It will be a timed test.
This week we will formally introduce multiplication. Your child will first learn that multiplication is repeated addition of equal groups. We will define multiplication as the following:
3 groups of 2 = 6
2 +2+2 = 6
3 X 2= 6
We will continue to learn about landforms.
This week we will also begin to review the 2nd grade states. In December, your child will be expected to identify the state and correctly spell the state. The second grade states are : Arizona (AZ), Colorado (CO), Kansas (KS), Utah (UT), Nevada (NV), Oregon (OR), Washington (WA), Idaho (ID), Wyoming (WY), and Montana (MT).
This week for homework we will once again have our “normal “spelling” lists.
Monday- Write the words two times each.
Tuesday-Write a creative story using 10 of the words. Please encourage correct punctuation. J
Wednesday – Pick 10 words and write a word the rhymes with the word.
Thursday- Study for the spelling test.
Have a great week!
