Classroom News For June

Religion- The class has finished their book for the year.  They will take it home.  Please have them show it to you and have them use the prayers and stories throughout the summer.  Our next religion series to use is named, "Family Life."

Reading- The children will finish their Superkids reader.  They did a very wonderful job reading about the Superkids.  Children that have attended OLMC school these past years have used this series.  They are happy to read and be friends with the Superkids.  This is the last year for using this marvelous reading series.  They have started and are once again enjoying a new chapter book.  It is called, "Betsey Who Cried Wolf".  

Spelling- Each Monday children will take a pre-test. These words will be studied each week in

our Super magazine, the Superkids reader, our Superkids workbook, and our trade books.  Children that receive a 100% on the pretest will not need to take the required spelling test each Friday. A worksheet called "Backpack pages" will be sent home for homework during the week.  This page should be studied each week for profiency in spelling the weekly words.

Science- Our class is studying Land Habitats.  These habitats include:  the rain forest, woodland forest, the desert and the Arctic.  The class will make a small woodland forest to kobserve in the classroom.  They will prepare 2 papragrphs about a favorite animal in its habitat.

Social Studies- Unit 4 focuses on Economics.  The children will list wants and needs that they have and how they should use them in their life.  We will discuss banking and saving and spending money.  We will discuss jobs that are servises.  The class will label these vocabulary words about their future jobs.

Phonics- This month we are using prefixes with base words.  The prefixes will include:  -un,-re, and -dis.  We will also use homoyms, antonyms and synonyms. 

Children will have a "Move up" day.  This is the day they will visit 3rd grade and receive their summer packet.

The class will work with grade 1 for 2 days and discuss the "Lures" program. This program focuses on safety with strangers.

There will be a first Friday mass on June 1st.

The 8th graders are our buddy class.  The children will make graduation cards for them.  They have been wonderful to us this year.  Your child has partnered up with the 8th grade for some years now.  They will miss them and we wish them greatness in high school!!

Math- Our second unit will continue to focus on addition and subtraction.  We will go further in these areas and learn skills that will help us to add and subtract.  For Example: the use of doubles and a 10 frame.  These skiills will help us to think and learn about place value.

Oral Language- there has been a book report assigned.  It will be due at the end of November.  Each child is responsible for reading a chapter book.  They will construct a small project using a cereal box and share this report during classtime.

Great things happen each day in the 2nd grade!!

I am proud and happy to be with your children each day, they ask the most amazing questions.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Massetti

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Handwriting- We begin with manuscript writing.  The children must properly form, space and size each letter. we use a handwriting book and I observe all of the writings we do everyday.

Cursive handwriting will be focused on next year in 2018.

Homework- There will be a homework assignment every night but Friday.  Homework will range from the above subjects.  All work is due the next day, unless there is a project assigned.  I will post a due date for projects{ex: book reports}.

Children will use a homework pad to help them in their daily assignments.

September will be a great first month!!
