This week in 2nd gradeā€¦

In Reading: We are turning our focus to exploring important ideas in non-fiction text. The students will make an informal inference to think about what is important in the text.

In writing: We are culminating our unit on opinion writing. The students will have a celebration on Friday. The students have learned to use a topic sentence to state their opinion and to give reasons and evidence to support their opinion.

In Science: We are learning about weather instruments, including an anemometer and a wind vane. We continue to study the movement of air.

Have a great week!
Mrs. Giles
