2-2


Religion
The children did a fabulous job at the May Crowning Mass.  A big thank you to all the parents who volunteered to make the Communion Breakfast such a wonderful celebration for the children!  Remember all second graders may wear their Communion tee shirts for gym class with their regular gym shorts until the end of the year.

We continue to honor Mary this month as the children recite a decade of the Rosary each day. Every student will have an opportunity to take a statue of The Blessed Mother home to their family; this will continue in June until each student has had their turn. This is a beautiful way to honor Mary and help your child develop a special relationship with Jesus' mother. 

This Thursday, June 1st is a half day; the children will attend the 9:00 a.m. Mass.

Math
Our next unit on geometry begins this week; we will explore two-dimensional shapes and how to separate a shape into equal shares. Please continue to review addition and subtraction facts at home with your child to keep their skills current.

Phonics

This week we will review all double vowel syllables learned thus far.

Spelling
Due to the short week, no new words or test is scheduled.  

Grammar
The class will continue learning about adjectives and how they add details to nouns in a sentence. 

Reading/Writing
Our reading selection from the Literature Anthology is, "The Pumpkin Plant". This coincides with our next science topic, "Plants".  The students will use the text to answer fact-based comprehension questions.  

Science 
Plants are the next area of study as we explore the life cycle of seed bearing plants.

 Health
The HEPP  Program continues. 

Best Regards,

Mrs Ciano
