Second-2-None: Week of 3/5/18

Week of 3/5/18

This week in Reading, we read City Green. This continued with the our theme of changing the world around us. We focused on the beginning, middle, and end of the story by picking out the main events and writing them in sequential order using a graphic organizer.

In Shurley English, we continued classifying sentences with and without prepositional phrases. We also identified nouns in a sentence as common, proper, singular, or plural. Lastly, we identified the topic of a given paragraph and determined which sentence to eliminate from a paragraph if it does not fit with the topic.

In Phonics, we added inflectional endings, such as –ed and –ing, to verbs. We learned three rules to help us remember when to double the final consonant, when not to double the final consonant, and when to get rid of the final –e. This week’s newsletter secret is: conferences.

In Math, we continued measuring items in inches and working on word problems involving measurements in inches. We also learned how to estimate the length of a given item. Next week, we will continue with inches and learn how they relate to feet and yards. We will also measure more real-life items.

In Religion, we focused on the Apostles’ Creed. Students worked with a partner and were given a line of the Creed. They wrote the line and illustrated a picture to show the meaning of that specific line on a poster.

In Social Studies, we learned about transportation, bartering, and wrapped up with unit with a review. On Monday, we will review some more in preparation for our Unit 3 Test on Tuesday. Students are coming home with their Social Studies books today to study over the weekend. They should be returned to school on Tuesday morning.
