Class Information


Welcome to Sister Beth's 2A Class!  



St. Joseph, Pray for us!


Religion:  This week and next week 2A will spend time learning about the special days of Holy Week, what the happened on those days during the time of Jesus, and why we commemorate those days in the Church today.

Reading:  Our story this week is a literary nonfiction story called Fire Fighter.  The children will learn about what a firefighter does when he/she is called to a fire.

Spelling/Phonics:  Our word sorts and spelling words this week are:  long oo and short oo; ur, ure, and ur-e.    Please study a few words each evening, so your child doesn't have to cram the night before the test.  The spelling test will be on Friday.

English:   Introduction of pronouns and suffixes -ly, -ful, -er, and or.

Math:  Find the missing parts by counting on or counting back, use estimation to select 2 numbers that have a given difference, use models to subtract 3 digit numbers with regouping, subtract 3 digit numbers with regrouping, and make a bar graph using data from a table.   Please continue to study the facts with your child.  5 minutes each evening can make all the difference.  Mrs. Gucciardi WILL be in this week Thursday 3/22 to test the children on their math facts.  Keep practicing telling time on an analog clock with your second grader.

Science:  What is matter?  What are the states of matter?

Handwriting:  Practice, trace and write lowercase review all letters introduced thus far, and the cursive letters b, h, and f.
