Update From Mrs. Moore’s Second Grade Classroom

April 16, 2010

READING This week we began our last unit for this school year called “Lend a Helping Hand”. In this unit we will read stories that help us realize that people can make a difference in their communities. Our first story was The Little Painter of Sabana Grande. We worked with words having 3-letter blends such as “scratch”, “stranger” and “spread”. The students learned more about homophones and practiced their skills at sequencing .

GRAMMAR This week’s lesson focused upon “adjectives”. We learned that reading is more interesting when adjectives are used.

SPELLING Please help your child practice the following words for their upcoming spelling test: men, women, children, feet, teeth, geese, mice, oxen, sheep and deer.

MATH We completed Unit 9 and have begun Unit 10 learning about decimals and place value.

SPECIAL GUESTS This week our special guests were four foreign-exchange students from the high school. They were from the countries of Denmark, Iceland, China, and Taiwan. The students enjoyed learning about the way of life in different countries.

LEARNING CHINESE Meng visited our classroom and reviewed counting numbers in Chinese with the students. She used her magic stick to teach the names of animals in Chinese and other languages.

MILL STREET VISIT The students enjoyed their visit to Mill Street yesterday. Mr. Norton showed the students a slide show of volcanoes, sundogs, clouds, and a “red” sea. They also looked at models of the different stages of frogs and listened to the sounds that the various frogs made. The students worked with partners using balloons, rubber bands, bells and combs to reproduce similar frog sounds.
