In math we continued to define and classify plane shapes and solid figures. We took a Math test on the topic on Thursday. Please look for the test in the Friday Folder.
Monday was Columbus Day and we read in Scholastic News that Columbus kept a journal. We looked for the main idea and details in Columbus' journal about the voyage to the new world and the people he met when he arrived.
We studied antonyms this week, which are words that are opposites. Building vocabulary in this way helps students become better readers and writers. Practice at home with your child. Try to think of antonyms for different words.
On Thursday we had an earthquake drill as part of the Great Shakeout.
Our Nordstrom key to success this month is respect and kindness. Second graders will be presenting at the Lion's Den assembly.
