2nd Grade Overview

March 18-22

BIBLE: Please review our work in Acts 17:24-27 (ESV) with your child. We’ll do activities to try and reinforce this memory work.

24“The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, 25 nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. 26 And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, and he determined the time set for them and the exact places where they should live (NIV), 27 that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us...”

MATH: The students will be representing and writing mixed numbers, creating and reading a bar graph, and identifying right angles.

Facts to know: all subtraction facts, and multiplication facts (x5). Use homework pages to help your child practice all math facts learned so far. Make sure you are checking their math homework and paying attention to any areas of need.

**Tests:  A Fact Assessment will be given on Friday, March 22nd (x5 facts).

READING: We will complete our unit on Cause and Effect.

SOCIAL STUDIES: We have begun our study of Ancient Greece! We encourage you to have discussions with your child as they begin learning about this ancient culture that has helped shape our own. Topics we will cover are: time and place, the Greek alphabet, architecture, myths, and government.

LANGUAGE/WRITING: Students will be learning how to retell a narrative story. They will identify the story sequence, create an outline, summarize a story from the outline, and internalize the components of a well-constructed story. We will also continue learning about verbs.
