Week of 5-6-19 to 5-10-19

This week in Reading, we read Disney’s See the source imageversion of The Jungle Book. We discussed the beginning, middle, and end of the story. We also reviewed setting and character traits. After we see the play on our field trip, we will compare and contrast the two versions.

In Writing, we worked on a Mother’s Day project. Make sure your second grader gives you the gift they made!

In Shurley English, we reviewed classifying sentences, parts of speech, types of nouns, and subject/predicate. In Phonics, we learned about synonyms and antonyms.

In Math, we sorted two-dimensional shapes based on their sides and angles, partitioned rectangles into same-size parts, and learned about halves, thirds, and fourths to divide shapes into equal parts.

In Religion, we practiced singing our Communion song and reviewed how to properly receive the Eucharist. We also practiced a lot for our May Crowning Mass!

In Science, we learned severe weather and reviewed Unit 7. We will have our Science test on Wednesday of next week.
