2nd Grade – Armstrong

October Newsletter

Armstrong News
We are off to a great start in Room 105! We have been working on telling time, and practicing our reading. To help with both, homework has started coming home – reading log, and other on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please, be on the look-out for it! I am looking forward to the great things to come this year!

Language Arts
In Language Arts, we have been practicing a few different skills. Retelling and the differences between Fiction and Nonfiction stories have both been important. We’ve also been practicing story structure.

Science/Social Studies
Science: We have begun and are continuing to discuss weather.

Social Studies: We have begun and are continuing to discuss how we as citizens can help our community.
