Grade 2 News

Original Works

Original Works orders are in the house.  We'll be sending them home soon so that folks get them in time for the holidays, even those who are leaving for holiday travels before Winter Break begins.  Kiddos will receive their orders from homeroom teachers at the end of the day on Friday, December 13th.  Please let them know to keep these precious products safe on the way home.  If you need yours earlier, just reach out via email and I'll make a delivery to your art genius' homeroom ASAP (dcondry@aak8.org)! 

Literacy

We are currently reading the Core Knowledge novel, Magic Tree House A Ghost Tale for Christmas Time. The kids are loving hearing the story of Jack and Annie as they meet Charles Dickens who wrote A Christmas Carol.

This will be our final week of Spelling City until we return from break in January.  Spelling tests will be next Wednesday, December 18th.  Instead of Reading Bingo this month, we have sent home Hot Chocolate Reading. These are due next Monday, December 16th - before break!

History

In history, students loved learning about Alexander the Great and the three great philosophers.  We completed our Greek Gazette project, and those will be coming home next week.

Science

We have had a wonderful time learning all about how canyons are made and what causes erosion with lots of messy activities! The students are excited to continue next week with hands on activities that will help us learn more about how landslides happen.

Field Trip

We still have one upcoming field trip before winter break. There are still some students not signed up.  Please remember to pay through the school store if you have not already done so.

This final field trip is an in-school field trip.  It is a total surprise for the students. We will not need sack lunches or volunteers. The field trip will take place in the 2nd grade hallway.
