Math: We reviewed our lessons on 'Time'.  An assessment on ‘Time’ is scheduled for Tuesday, April 16th.    

Social Studies: We reviewed our Studies Weekly on different cultures and a quiz will be tomorrow due to the half day on Wednesday.  

Science:  We will begin our chapter on exploring magnets when we come back from our Easter Break.  Some vocabulary words that will be covered are: repel – push away; attract – to bring towards; poles – north & south parts of a magnet that are opposite each other.     

Religion: It’s hard to believe that in a month the second graders will be receiving their First Holy Communion. We are doing fabulous in practicing our Communion songs as well as practicing receiving the Eucharist.  We finished Chapter 22 "God Calls Us to Love and Serve." We learned that everyone is called by God to love and serve. We will have a quiz on this chapter as well as read a short chapter on Easter and continue working on Easter activities.

 

 

Have a Blessed Easter Holiday!!
