    2nd Grade Overview

    February 11th-22nd

    BIBLE: Continuing in Acts 17! We covered verses 24-25, now all of verse 26 for Monday, February 11th: 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. [*Used NIV for the 2nd part of this verse, all the rest is ESV.]

    MATH: We will be learning to round to the nearest ten, finding half of a set, estimating sums, and measuring using feet and inches.

    Facts to know: subtraction facts through -6. 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 Tuesday, February 12th (subtraction facts through -6). A Written Assessment will be given on Wednesday, February 13th (no study required).

    READING: We will continue our unit called Important Details. The students will determine whether a detail is essential or nonessential and explain why it is important by relating it to other elements of the text (like the story’s events or characters).

    **Please practice the pattern statement, process questions, and vocabulary words! Students who practice these periodically at home consistently perform better in their work during class and also on the tests.                    

    SPELLING/PHONICS:  We will begin working on Unit #21 in Spelling Connections.

    **Test: The test for Unit 21 will be on Friday, February 22nd.

    SOCIAL STUDIES: We will focus on Black History Month during February. The students will be researching famous African Americans at home and creating a square for their class “Freedom Quilt”.  

    LANGUAGE/WRITING: Students will be summarizing a reference by limiting facts and choosing details that are interesting or important to them. They will create a key word outline and write a paragraph using the supporting details they select. We will also be learning about verbs.

    REMINDERS AND NOTES!
