Second Grade Overview

December 11th - December 15th

BIBLE: Continue working on scripture memory for Acts 17:26 (ESV). Students should be prepared for some kind of review quiz (verbal or word bank) of verses 24 and 25 so that we can keep the entire passage fresh on our minds.  

Acts 17:24-26 (ESV):

(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, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place.”

**Test: Our next verse test #6 will be on Friday, December 15, and will cover Acts 17:26 (ESV).

MATH:  Facts to know: All addition facts and subtraction 1, 2, and 3.

We will be working on overlapping geometric shapes, subtracting ten from a two-digit number, measuring and drawing line segment to the nearest half-inch, adding two-digit numbers with a sum greater than 100, and representing and ordering numbers using base ten blocks.

**Test: A Written Assessment will be given on Monday, December 18, (no study needed) and a Fact Assessment will be given on Tuesday, December 19 (study required).

READING:  We will be reading the story of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever”, and we will be working on reading fluency and reading aloud through various Reader’s Theater activities.
