Here are the updates for our final week before Thanksgiving Break:
Reading: Finish our Traditional Literature unit and assess on Friday. A half page review for this came home on Monday in
the blue folders. The students will be required to identify the lessons learned in the fables we have been reading in
class. You will also see a word list in the Blue Folder. We will begin our word sorts after Thanksgiving Holidays.
Instructions will be sent home along with sort materials.
Writing: Continuing our letter writing unit. Students are doing fabulous with this. They will write a letter to one of the
fable characters we have read about next week for a grade. In their letters they are required to have a heading (date),
greeting (Dear ….), the body of their letter consisting of at least 5 sentences, a closing line ( Sincerely,) and then
their signature (printed name, not requiring cursive) at the bottom. They have been doing great with their practice letters
in class and I am excited to see how these turn out! If you haven't already. Please send a self-addressed stamped
envelope. This will be an additional assignment for the kids to write to a classmate.
Math: Continuing 2 digit addition and subtraction with regrouping. We will not test over this until December. A test review
with word problems will come home for this soon, but until then having students practice adding and subtracting with just
the numbers at home is always good.
We have a Food Drive going on this week: 2nd grade - Canned Fruits & Vegetables
Some of the most valuable lessons of Thanksgiving are learning to be thankful and to share just like the Pilgrims and
Native Americans did. In order to learn these lessons in a fun way, we will be making a friendship snack in our classroom.
We will learn how to share and make friends by having a snack time with friendship snacks. I am asking for some key
ingredients for our snack. We will mix all of our ingredients together to create our friendship snack for everyone to
enjoy. Please follow the link below if you would like to help!https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080549ABAE29A5FD0-thanksgiving
