Here's what we are doing...

Health:  We have met Slim Goodbody and friends to hear about healthy habits.  

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 two digit numbers.  We will be subtracting two digit numbers.


*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.  It has the title, Go! Go! Go!  It is all about things that move.

*There may be homework pages to do.

Science:  Our new unit will be about the diversity of animals.  We will review animal groups, look at where animals live, and use Mystery Science lessons with activities to understand diversity.  
*Test on Friday - Look for study pages

Spelling:   Spelling List - Backpack page 57  *Test on Friday

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 will next learn about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and slavery.
  
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.
