Second-2-None: Week of 4-30-18

Week of 4-30-18

This week in Religion, we discussed what it means to be a member of a parish and how bishops carry on the work of the Apostles. We also practiced singing a song for our First Holy Communion Mass. Lastly, we practiced the proper way of receiving communion so that we are well-prepared for our big day!

In Math, we began Chapter 11. In this chapter so far, we have learned the names of three-dimensional shapes (cube, rectangular prism, cone, sphere, and cylinder) and two-dimensional shapes (quadrilateral, triangle, pentagon, and hexagon). We learned about their attributes, such as sides, edges, vertices, and faces, too. Next week, we will talk about angles and fractions.

In Social Studies, we learned three different Native American groups, the Powhatan, Sioux, and Pueblo. We discussed what they ate, what they wore, what they used for transportation, and the types of homes they built and lived in. We discussed traditions and how the colonies in our country first started. Students learned about people in history such as John Smith and Squanto. This week’s newsletter secret is: colony.

In Reading, we continued with “Disaster Alert.” So far, we have read about floods, tornadoes, sinkholes, and brushfires. Students in 110 created their own “How To” posters, describing how to stay safe in one of these natural disasters and shared it with the class. We are still focusing on the main idea while reading and asking/answering questions based on the text.

In Phonics, we continued our work with vowel pairs. In Spelling, we had words with a silent c. In Shurley English, students in 109 reviewed classifying sentences with pronouns, and 110 took their Chapter 9 Test. Next week, we will begin Chapter 11; several new concepts are taught in this chapter to prepare students for 3rd Grade.
