Here's what we are doing...

Health:  We have met Slim Goodbody and friends to hear about healthy habits.  We are looking at ways to keep our minds and bodies healthy. 

Math:  We started out with even and odd numbers, place value, and counting.  We reviewed o'clock time, time to the half hour, and counting dollars, dimes and pennies.  We see numbers as hundreds, tens, and ones.  We should be able to read number words.  We are changing tens to ones and hundreds to tens...and back again.  We have been using adding and subtracting facts.  We have added and subtracted two digit numbers.  We will now add and subtract hundred numbers.  We worked with money and telling time.  We have measured with inches, feet, yards, centimeters, and meters.  We are looking at shapes and fractions.

*There may be homework pages to do.

Reading:  We are finding out what the Superkids do in their second grade classroom this year.  We will do grammar, sentences, special words, and special sounds.  In small reading groups we are reading Super Magazine about Wild Things and Places.

*There may be homework pages to do.

Science:  We have completed units on plants, landforms, water, and animal diversity.  We made inventions that we presented to the class.  We have finished our unit on matter.  We will look at seasons and weather next.  We are lookihg at graphs and reading data.

Spelling:   Spelling List - Backpack page 52  *Test on Tuesday

Social Studies:  We are learning about living in a community and citizenship.
We are using Scholastic News.  We found out all about Veteran's Day and learned more about the Pilgrims and Indians.  We learned about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., slavery, and segregation.   We looked at the presidents that President's Day is named for.  We learned a little about leprechauns.  We are getting ready for Mother's Day and Memorial Day.

Writing:  We wrote a paragraph about ourselves.  We used a 4 square organizer, wrote a first draft, met with the editor (me), wrote a final draft, and used a checklist to proofread the final draft.  We have written an opinion paper.   We are practicing sequencing events to write a narrative.  We chose the main character, the setting, the problem, and some event ideas.  We put them all together for our final draft.  We will look at main idea and details next.  We will put together an animal report.  We have written our final copy.
