nd Grade Classroom News!
Welcome to 2nd Grade
We are excited that you have decided to visit our website. Second grade is a year of great spiritual growth as many of our children receive the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. Academically, second graders are ready to dig deeper into more complex subject matter. As you explore our website, you will see some of the fun and exciting learning activities second graders participate in. We do a lot of learning and growing in second grade, and we have fun along the way.
Our Diocesen theme this year is, Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again, Rejoice! (Philippeans 4:4). I am rejoicing because I am able to begin my second year teaching second grade to a wonderful group of students!

What We Are Learning:
ELA: This week is a Spelling week. The students should have copied their words into their planners. The spelling choice menu is due Thursday-students may pick 3 of the options to complete and return. The students are finishing their personal narratives. They have been working hard going through the Writing Process: brainstorm, rough draft, editing, final copy. The students are reviewing proper nouns when reading and long vowel sounds.
Math: We began Chapter 4-Subtracting double digit numbers with and without regrouping.
Science: We are learning about Matter (Unit 2). We are learning about properties of matter and solids and liquids. We are learning about using the same set of materials to make different objects and that matter can change. We are learning about reversible and irreversible changes.
STREAM: We have been going to the computer lab to write using Night Zookeeper. We have been working on a craft titled, God's Top Ten to incorporate the 10 commandments into our STREAM class. We are making a special art project for Christmas!
Social Studies: We are beginning Unit 2-Geography. The students finished their Bodies of Water brochures and they are displayed in the classroom. The students are reading and writing about natural resources and ways people change the Earth.
Religion: We have been discussing our theme for the year and sharing what we Rejoice in as a 2nd grade class. We are also discussing being a disciple of Jesus and at Jesus brought us the Church. We are learning about the Church year and celebrating the Advent Season.
A Note from Your Teacher:
Our Christmas Program is Thursday, December 20th at 10:00! The students have been practicing their songs to prepare.
