This class of 16 second graders is off to a great start, though it's
hard to believe a whole quarter has breezed by already! So much learning,
sharing, and growing has already taken place as we walk together with Jesus
(our theme for this year).
We start every morning with pledges to the
American flag and the Christian flag, as well as a patriotic song. Patriotism
is part of our social studies curriculum, and it includes a unit on our
government and elections. We also have learned about communities, and what
roles we can play in our communities. In the near future the students will be
doing research and a report on a state of their choice, as well as doing their
own family trees, learning about their family culture and heritage, and doing
another report on a country of their family origin. This will all tie into our
Education Fair theme of "America and Me" and how our families originally came
to America. This will include writing about and creating art projects of
various American symbols.
recite the Ten Commandments and various well-known and classic poems that the
students memorize. Our prayers include praying for our beloved church prayer
partners and our families and friends.
In our Bible
lessons we have already covered creation, the flood, Abraham and Sarah, Isaac
and Rebekah, Jacob and Esau, Joseph, Moses and the Exodus, marching around
Jericho, Gideon, the Ten Commandments, as well as that God can make good come
out of bad situations such as with the stories of Ruth and Hannah and Samuel.
Much of our
curriculum is A Beka, a Christian focused curriculum, so the children read
stories with Bible-based values in reading, and read and work with sentences with
those same values in spelling, phonics, handwriting, writing, and math
too. While the texts we read incorporate
the special sounds we are working on, as well as our spelling words so that
they can be used in context, they also demonstrate morals, good character
traits, and Bible truths.
God in our study of science as well. The students know that all living things,
including us, come from and are created and specifically designed by God. The
second graders have chosen their own animals to research and write about. Their
wonderful pictures and paragraphs can be seen decorating the upstairs hallway.
In math we
are adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers with carrying and soon to be
borrowing, looking at fractions, measurement, working with money, counting by
2's. 5's, 10's, and now 3's, in preparation for multiplication. The children
are telling time as well.
graders are a joy to teach and I look forward to a great year of learning
it is to have this event for the students!
It takes lots and lots of work, but thanks to Miss Heeren & Mrs.
Ferguson, it is being prepared for another year! Please take note of the attached flyer!! We need lots of volunteers! I'm hoping we'll have plenty!!
