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.

*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 chapter books.  Your second grader will read Keena Ford and the Second Grade Mix-up or Ivy + Bean Break the Fossil Record.

*There may be homework pages to do.

Science:  We have completed units on plants, landforms, water, and animal diversity.  We made inventions that we will present to the class.  Our next unit is on the forms of matter.

Spelling:   Spelling List - Backpack page 14

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.

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.
