Here is what we've been working on
Phonics: We are finishing up the year learning about different kinds of patterns that are not commonly used. We are also learning to read and write words that are multi-syllabic, which means they are a lot more difficult. Phonics gets pretty tricky at the end of the year.
Reading: We read Officer Buckle and Gloria and Mr. Tanen's Tie Trouble. Both were fun stories to read. We are working hard on understanding the stories and making sure we comprehend what we are reading.
English and Grammar: This month we learned about pronouns and subject-verb agreement.
Math: We focused on money this month. We turned in our tickets that we use for prizes and exchanged them for monetary amounts. We are going to have a prize auction at the end of the year with all our "money".
Science: This month we talked about Earth Day and we spent one beautiful, spring afternoon tending to our school's prayer garden weeding, planting, and mulching.
Social Studies: We focused on Easter and Earth Day this month.
Religion: We are ready to receive our first Holy Communion this Saturday!! What a special time for second grade.
No May birthdays
