Beautiful Tuesday!

What a beautiful day! We are finishing up Module 2 in math and will be taking a few days to review the concepts. I will send home a study guide on Thursday and the test will be next Monday. Our spelling words this week are based on long/short u sounds. The words are: cut, cute, cub, cube, jump, funny, four, under, put, and use. I sent home a letter today talking about our parent meeting for 2nd grade this Thursday, October 10 in the media center beginning at 7:50 am and ending around 8:20am. Students are welcome but please be sure that they have a book or an electronic device to keep them entertained. We hope to see you there!
Thanks for all that you do and enjoy the rest of this beautiful day:-)

Room 27 Updates:-)
The math portion of NWEA is complete!! I was so happy to see so many students taking their time and working out problems that were extremely difficult:-) The only homework for tonight is spelling-be sure to complete at least 3 activities on the tic tac toe board. Library books are due tomorrow and we will do some practicing for NWEA reading. Math packets can be recycled-please look over the reading packets-we will be doing the reading test beginning Monday, May 20. Thanks so much for helping your students-I was so proud of their hard work today!!!

Welcome May!!

Good Afternoon!
Stay dry during these rainy days! You may have noticed that the math homework is not going in order. That is because some of the lessons are just repeating and the class has the concept. They are doing a great job with arrays and I was very happy with how they did on the mid module test. Our spelling words this week are irregular plurals. The words are: woman, women, goose, geese, mouse, mice, foot, feet,man , men and the bonus word is plural. The 5 mystery words this week will be words that I am finding misspelled frequently. These may be words such as very, beautiful, whose, people, should and those. I have been taking some time lately talking to the class about proper upper and lower case letter writing. We will continue to practice making letters correctly and not putting capital letters in the middle of words and spacing and structure of letters. Practice makes progress!! The field trip notices went home today for the Historical Museum. Students are 5.00 for this trip and their will be room on the bus for our class to go as a group together. Chaperones do not need to pay and may meet us at the Historical Museum. Please write on the permission slip if you would like to be a chaperone:-) Finally-April book logs are due tomorrow!

Thanks for all that you do!!

Thank you for the parent volunteers for tomorrow morning! I wanted to copy the Social Studies terms for our short test tomorrow. The class is doing very well on knowing these terms and a short review should be great to go over with them tonight. We also have a mid module math test tomorrow-again the class has been doing very well with arrays and repeated addition.

Social Studies Study Guide:
Review these terms:
Scarcity: When there is not enough of a product
Opportunity Cost: Second choice. I wanted to buy a video game but I didn’t have enough money so I bought a board game instead.
Good: Something you can hold in your hand-food, toys, clothing.
Service: A person who provides a service like a police officer, nurse or doctor, teacher, cook or chef, firefighter, hair stylist
Capital Resource: things we use to make goods or provide services. Factories, tools, hospitals, classrooms
Human Resources: Jobs that humans do or things people make
Natural Resources: trees, water, air, soil
We trade money for goods and services
Places like Target, Kroger, McDonalds provide goods and services.

Our words are: didn’t, they’ve, she’ll, he’s, wouldn’t, can’t, we’ve, we’ll, she’s, couldn’t, won’t, shouldn’t, I’ll, isn’t, wasn’t. I was very happy with the results of the math test!!
