The new year has started off with a burst of activity in Second Grade!
In Mathematics, the children learned how to tell time by the hour, half hour, quarter hour, and five minute intervals. They studied tens and ones, number words, the number line, and ordinal numbers. They also learned about odd and even numbers, ordering numbers, and estimating.
In Reading, the children have completed their first anthology reader, and each picked their favorite story. Leo, Kevin, Kamilah, and Brayden liked "Henry and Mudge." Enrique and Lucas liked "Lemonade for Sale." Deryck enjoyed "Arthur Writes a Story." Daniela preferred "The Best Friends Club." Jessy Elise enjoyed "Luka's Quilt." The children are now working in their second reading book.
In Spelling, we had our third Spelling Bee, and all the students were winners. Congratulations and thank you for the hard work!
The children also made snow people which are hanging in our classrooom, and angels, who earned their "golden wings" by performing good deeds.
On Valentine's Day, the children performed their third show of the year, and then enjoyed a delightful lunch with their parents.
Next, we'll be learning about the meaning of Lent, and about the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion. They will be coming up soon!
