Reading & Writing- We are wrapping up our research on our biographies and practicing "coming alive" as our person to tell the 5 most important Wow facts we have learned.  They can't wait to present their biographies next week, May 8th from 1:30- 2:10 in the multipurpose room.  Remember they can think about what they might want to wear or if they have a prop they may like to hold to help depict their character. This week we talked about our end of the year play we usually perform. They are excited to pick their role and start learning their lines.

In Math we are learning about different polygons and counting the angles and sides of each shape to figure out their name. They have been building a variety of different polygons on their geoboards with a rubber band. Next we have been breaking a polygon into equal parts to talk about fractions. They are learning the top number of a fraction is called the numerator and the bottom number is called the denominator and shows how many pieces there are in all.

In Science we continue to study the 6 different parts of a plant and the 2 functions they do for the  plant. Ask your child to tell you the 2 main jobs of each part of a plant.

***Don't forget Our Spring Sing for the 2nd graders will be on May 9th at 1:00 in the gym.
