Class Information


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.

English:   Verbs.

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)

Music:  Tuesday

Art:  Wednesday

Library:  Wednesday  Please return library books each week so that a new book may be checked out.

Looking Ahead!
