Second Grade Weekly Highlights

Weekly Highlights

LEARNING EXPEDITION TO NEW ECHOTA - Second grade students will have the wonderful opportunity to visit the New Echota Historic Site, located in Calhoun, on Wednesday, April 12th.  Students have learned this year about Georgia’s past and studied the Creek and Cherokee Indians in Social Studies.  We are super excited about visiting New Echota, a place that is actually in our textbooks! 

SAVE THE DATE | CogAT 1st - 3rd Grades - The Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) will be administered to 1st - 3rd graders on 4.19 and 4.20. The CogAT is designed to assess students’ reasoning and problem-solving abilities and is “one piece of the pie” in equipping educators with individualized and grade-level information to best meet students' needs. Info to follow! 

HANGER BOOK REPORT - Details for our last book report will come home in blue folders on March 22nd. Students will be reading one nonfiction book about an animal of their choice.  Your child may choose an appropriate level book for them from the Reading Room, local library, Raz Kids,, or any book store you choose.  They will then plan, write, and design a clothes hanger that displays the main idea and supporting details of the book. A planning page will be due no later than April 17th and the final project is due by April 24th

SAVE THE DATE | Arts on the Lawn - Arts on the Lawn is our Lower School spring concert and all NEW visual art show on Friday evening, 4.28! All families of K3 - 4th grade students are welcome to join us on the NCCS softball field for a wonderful evening of fun, food and fellowship as we celebrate the artistic gifts of our students! PTF has some great food trucks lined up, too!

What We're Learning

Bible - We will continue our Easter series.  This week we will focus on “The Judgment Hall,” “The Crucifixion,” and “The Resurrection.”

Phonics / Spelling - Sounds of ch / tch:

Use ch right after a consonant or vowel team.  (ex: lunch or beach)

Use tch right after a short vowel sound.  (ex: patch)

Grammar / Creative Writing -  Now that we have published the final copy of our “How To” papers, we will begin our new unit on Adjectives.  An adjective is a word that describes a noun.  We use our senses (sight, smell, sound, taste, and touch) to describe nouns.

Math - We have completed Unit 6:  Whole Number Operations and Number Stories.  This week students will take a Cumulative Test on Tuesday, March 21st.  On Wednesday, a review will come home for the Unit 6 Test, which is on Friday, March 24th.

Social Studies - This week we wrap up our unit on Georgia’s Places.  A review will come home on Monday for the test on Wednesday, March 22nd.
