As salaamu alaikum Second Grade Families,
In shaa Allah, you are in the best of health and Iman. Ma shaa Allah, second graders are doing an incredible job with their reading, writing, math and more. They enjoy writing their weekly paragraphs with different topics. This week our topic was a perfect pet and why they like the pet they chose and how they would take care of it. We learned that we begin our writing with a main idea, details with examples or explanation and conclusion. During reading groups we read one assigned book from Monday to Thursday to work on different strategies. On Fridays, our students are given a test for their assigned book. A copy of your student's completed test was sent home on Friday. In math, we have been working hard to finish Unit 1 and In shaa Allah, we will have a test on Monday, November 2, 2020. We reviewed for the test on Friday and students brought home their review packet to study from. In social studies, students wrote and drew a picture of their favorite place in their community. In science, we learned about what is melt able and how toys were made long ago and today. We did a melt able experiment using two different candies in Ziplocs and put them in hot water to see which one melts more on a hot day. Please check google classroom for assignments from sister Muntaha.
If your student has not been using IXL, kids a-z, and other websites for practice, please remind them to practice at least one skill on IXL, and read one book on kids a-z every day. There is also an assignment on seesaw for students to complete and return. Thank you for your support and cooperation in helping our students to learn and grow in second grade.
