Writing: The students will be continuing to write narratives this week. They will be applying the "show not tell" skills that they learning last week to their current writing pieces. In addition to that, the students will become the experts in editing boring stories. They will use their creativity to make a boring story reflect their personal voice in writing.
Spelling: We will be continuing our study of "r" controlled vowels when the vowel is a "u".
Math: The students will continue to use strategies to solve three-digit addition and subtraction problems. The three strategies they will be continuing to use are "open number line", "partial sums" or "place value", and "base ten blocks". Students will also continue to compare three digit numbers by using >,<,=. All these skills will be applied to solving word problems. The students will have fun playing the ever popular "problem solving bingo" and other math games to practice the skills they have worked hard on all year.
Social Studies: Last week, the students learned all about Jimmy Carter and his contributions. They also enjoyed learning fun facts about him as well! This week, the students will be showing us all that they have learned about Jimmy Carter by presenting the information in a creative way (poster, speech, play, interview). We can't wait to see what they come up with!
Science: When we return from spring break, the students will be studying the life cycles of plants and animals. We will venture outside this week to view our second grade garden. There, the students will see where we will plant and observe the life cycles of the seeds we plant. We would love to get more parent volunteers to help out with the gardening! Please contact your child's teacher if you are interested in assisting during this time. :-)
