Mrs. Campbell’s Second Grade Class         

December 3-7

We will visit the Santa Sale on Wednesday the 5th and Friday the 7th.  If you would like your child to go, please send money on those days.

 

This week we will continue unit 6 called “Many States, One Country”.  Your child will be practicing spatial thinking skills by interpreting maps and answering questions about locations of places.  Students will apply skills and create maps of their own bedroom.  Students will continue to learn about the fifty states and their locations.  As an extension, students will choose a state to research and write a paragraph about it during writing workshop.  Their paragraph should include a topic sentence, at least three details, and a concluding sentence.
