2nd Grade eNews

We are looking forward to conferences this week! Your child is so excited! Please remember to be on time - each conference is 15 minutes, so the time will go quickly!


  • Bible – We will learn about Martha and her faith. Our story comes from John 11. We will not have a memory verse this week, so we can concentrate on our poem. Please help your child memorize the Easter poem that was sent home.
  • Reading – Our story will be “The Mysterious Tadpole.” Our skill will be Predict and Justify.
  • Spelling – Our new Spelling skill will be long a spelled: eigh, ea, and ey.
  1. EA- Is always in the middle of a syllable: great, break, steak
  2. EIGH- like weight, neigh, beige, sleigh, eight
  3. EY- Always at the end of the syllable: they, hey, grey, prey, obey, convey, purvey, survey, whey
  • Grammar – We will continue working with adverbs and will learn how to code them in a sentence.
