Welcome to our new classmate Jorge! We are so excited to have Jorge join us from West Virginia. Second grade will not be taking MAP tests until the week of Jan. 14th-Jan.17th since we must share the iPads for testing. This week I will instead be individually testing students with the Fountas and Pinnel Reading Level Tests.
Feast of the Epiphany
Parts of Mass
Sacrament of Reconciliation
SPELLING LIST: there, they’re, their, know, flower, flour, horse, hoarse, poor, pour, hear, here, pain, pane
Bonus Words: homonym, because
Obviously, it is important to study the usage of these words for this week. They are learning about homonyms, as well as the way the meaning/spelling of words change according to contextual clues.
CAPS (Capitalization, Agreement, Punctuation and Spelling). Please send in a baseball cap for your child. He/she will be wearing it as they revise their writing this week to remind them about the importance of editing for Conventions.
Review for MAP Testing
Due to the F&P Reading Level Testing which takes about 20-30 minutes per student, the students will be working on independent work with phonics this week. It is all good practice.
