Sister Beth Schmitz, 2nd Grade
Welcome to Sister Beth's 2A Class!
"A voice cries out:
In the desert prepare the way of the LORD!
Make straight in the wasteland a highway for our God!
Every valley shall be filled in,
every mountain and hill shall be made low;
the rugged land shall be made a plain,
the rough country, a broad valley.
Then the glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
and all people shall see it together;
for the mouth of the LORD has spoken."
Religion: We will continue our work with Advent and preparing for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Reading: Our story this week is a realistic fiction piece titled DEAR JUNO. It is about a little Korean boy who lives in the United States and the letters he writes to his grandmother in Korea. We will do a skim and scan on this story.
Spelling/Phonics: The spelling words are as follows: short i and long i (cvce, cvcc, igh, and cv open syllable, y); short a, long a (cvce, cvvc, ai, and open syllable ay) Please study a few words each night so your child won't have to cram on the night before the test. The spelling test wil be on Friday.
Math: We will review double digit subtraction, complete and record addition problems using 2 digit coin amounts, estimate the sum of 2 digit numbers, and use different methods to help solve addition problems. Please keep studying those math sets for just 5 minutes each evening. Although Sister Mary Therese is unable to come to school right now, Mrs. Gucciardi has been testing the children the past couple of weeks, I would like to see the children to keep progressing. Many are at a standstill.
Science: We will review for a science test which will be on Wednesday. Books and study guides will be sent home on Monday for a test on Wednesday.
Handwriting: Work on Christmas cards for other schools.
Computer: Monday and Thursday
Gym: Thursday and Friday (WEAR GYM SHOES)
Library: Wednesday Please return library books each week so that a new book may be checked out.
