Dear Students & Parents,

How can it be possible that this is our final week together as 2nd graders???? It seems like just yesterday your children were walking through my door in September with tentative smiles and an abundance of energy. Each of every one of them have worked so hard this year and have grown so much. I couldn't be any prouder of the studious, meticulous and spirited young learners they have all become. I know that they are well-prepared for 3rd grade and look forward to seeing their continued success!

Important Things to Know This Week
:
1. No more homework!
2. Friday folders should be returned emptied on Monday. Thanks!
3. As we complete various subjects, students will be bringing home their workbooks to keep. A large sticker will be placed on the front of any books that should be removed from their backpacks and kept at home. :-)

In reading this week we will be:
-participating in book/story discussion groups. Students will revisit their favorite stories read this year and defend why they loved them so much!
-switching gears to fun-loving summer tales!

In language arts this week we will be:
-reviewing all grammar concepts taught this year. Students will review and complete Grammar Minute challenges during class.
-working on our handwr
iting skills. If you know that your child's handwriting is inconsistent and/or needs improvement, please let me know if you'd like some summer practice worksheets. 

In math, we have completed the Second Grade curriculum, as well as, the beginning 3rd grade concepts. This week we will devote some time to reviewing regrouping, estimating and time.    
  

In science we will be previewing topics on Matter. Our life cycle unit of frogs has been quite a learning experience! We still are not certain of what species of frog tadpoles we have received, but they are growing rapidly.  Some have their back legs while others are still forming them. An email will be sent this to inquire if anyone would like to take one home to finish watching the metamorphosis process.

In Social Studies we will be reviewing the key vocabulary learned this year that will be most helpful to them next year.


In religion we will be reviewing some of the major topics we've covered this year by completed a Mass Book activity that takes us through our year of sacramental preparation. We will also be learning how to pray the Rosary. 

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email me at any time or call/leave a message at school (516-432-8900).  

Sincerely,
Mrs. Williams
