Here's what's in store for the week...
CHRISTIAN CHARACTER FORMATION PROJECT
This week we will read about Peter's denial of Jesus from Mark 14:26-31 and 66-72, and discuss the virtue of COURAGE. We define courage as God's power for you to overcome fear. As we read, we'll ask ourselves this "Big Question": How will you develop courage to NEVER deny Jesus in any circumstance?
PHONICS and SPELLING
Most consonants behave themselves, each making their own ONE sound. This week we will read, sort, and spell words with consonants that break that rule. These are called hard-c and soft-c, and hard-g and soft-g.
Also, the pink spelling homework is NOT changing and will remain the same for the rest of the year. I apologize for any confusion.
READING SKILLS and STRATEGIES
This week your second grader will practice fluency, text-based evidence comprehension questions, and written responses that encourage thinking beyond the text.
Also, I hope you heard about the first round of voting for March Book Madness! We will find out the results on Wednesday, and vote from the elite eight that day!
WRITING and GRAMMAR
We will continue to work on persuasive writing this week, with the addition of writing book reviews to persuade others to read books we love. We are always working on grammar while writing, but we'll be focusing on contractions again this week.
