We had another wonderful week in Second Grade! This week we had Mrs. Champman from the NH Audobon Society visit our classroom. She helped deepen our understanding about the ways in which seeds travel, and the impact animals have on seed dispersal.
This will be our last full week of Wonders. We will explore the question, where can your imagination take you? Our spelling pattern this week will be r controlled syllables, as in the word pattern. As well, we will revisit the reading comprehension strategy point of view.
We will begin our final mathematics unit this week. In this unit, we will explore the concepts of equal shares. This lays the foundation for students to understand division as they move to third grade. As well, I will introduce students to a more efficient strategy for subtracting larger numbers.
A few big reminders this week:
On Monday, June 4th we will have our school-wide read-a-thon celebration in the afternoon. I encourage you to send in a beach towel or blanket, as we will be reading on the grass. As well, you may want to apply bug spray or sunscreen. Children are allowed to bring a hat or sunglasses if they like.
On Thursday, June 7th we will head to Squam Lake for our field trip. There are not any special items you need to pack with your child beyond a lunch and snack. There is not an option for purchasing lunch there. I would encourage you to have your child dress in layers, wear comfortable shoes, and apply bug spray. As a reminder, we will return to school at approximately 4:00. Please arrange for transportation at that time.
