This week in Grade 2 we will be doing the usual, practicing grammar,
vocabulary, spelling, reading, and writing. Our story for this week in Journeys
is Super Storms
. Super Storms
is a nonfiction book about some of the most devastating types of storms on Earth: tornadoes, typhoons, thunderstorms, and blizzards. this week marks the second week of our look at nonfiction. While reading Super Storms
, we will again be looking at the importance of main ideas and details getting ready for writing our own multi-paragraph informative compositions.
At the end of the week students be doing some more practice with writing an informative paragraph, this time, using information from a book. Good practice for your child this week would be to read additional nonfiction selections.
Below is the weekly handout sheet for this week. We will have a spelling test at the end of the week. Please remind your child to study the spelling words and help them review the vocabulary words as well.
