Skills

We will continue reviewing all of our plural rules.  We will also be learning “to be” verbs: am, are, is, was and were.  We will be writing persuasive letters this week during skills.

Math

In math, we will be subtracting numbers mentally.  Students will be asked to branch the numbers to solve the problems.

We are in the 5th week of taking multiplication timed tests.  Students must pass one set with at least a 90 before moving on to the next.  This is the order we will follow:

·         0,1,2

·         5

·         10

·         3

·         4

·         Mixed

Students will have 18 problems to answer in 3 minutes.  We will test each Friday.

 

Core: Immigration

We will continue our unit on Immigration.  We will learn about all the different types of people that came to America and why they came, the Statue of Liberty, and experiences at Ellis Island.

Please remember that Immigration Day will take place on February 11th.  Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this day!  This is NOT a party, therefore it is not open to parents.

On Immigration Day…  Please remember that your child has to come to school dressed as their immigrant character.  They need to know who they are (name and age), where they came from, their trade/job, and if anything is wrong with them (ex. a broken arm or wear glasses).  We encourage all students to dress the role as much as possible.  You do not have to buy anything for this day.  Old clothing will work perfectly because most immigrants came in dirty or tattered clothing.  Using their westward expansion costume will work as well; just leave off the bonnet for girls. Students will not need a lunch on this day, unless they chose not to eat pizza, as we will have a pizza party when we return to school.

Remember to study the vocabulary throughout the unit in order to prepare for the test.

You can follow along in “What your Second Grader Needs to Know” on pages 164-168.
