May 2022 

Dear Second Grade Friends and Families,

Another month of school has gone by!  What a special month it is with both First Communion and Mother’s Day approaching!

The following Gr. 2 skills and concepts will be covered this month.

Religion:  We will learn about the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist in the celebration of the Mass; and ways we continue the celebration of the Eucharist in our lives.

FIRST COMMUNION MASSES: Two Masses will be celebrated on Saturday, May 7, 2022. 

 Miss Taylor’s class will receive their First Holy Communion at the 9:00 a.m. Mass.

 Mrs. Kennedy’s class will receive their First Holy Communion at the 11:00 a.m. Mass.

 FIRST COMMUNION ATTIRE INFORMATION:

Boys: Navy blue or black suit; white shirt; navy blue, black, or white tie; dark shoes & socks.

Girls: White dress; veil or headpiece (optional); white tights, knee highs or anklets; white shoes. (No gloves, purses, rosaries, or prayer books.)

 

Language:  We will identify and use comparative (-er) and superlative (-est) adjectives in writing; use commas in dates and letters; and identify and use pronouns in writing

Reading:  Unit 4.  Our story genres for the month of May are biographies and realistic fiction.  Students will determine the theme or main message of a story by asking themselves what the big idea of the story is.

Phonics:  We will learn words with open and closed syllables, suffixes and prefixes.  They will determine the theme or main message of a story by asking themselves, “What big idea is the story about?”

Continue to practice phonics sounds by logging on to The Spelling City website. www.SpellingCity.com/ckennedy7

Spelling words are also posted weekly in Google Classroom under Gr. 2 Announcements.

Science:  We will continue to learn about plants and animals.  We will identify animals’ needs and how they use certain body parts to meet their needs.  We will also identify habitats that meet the needs of certain plants and animals.  Please check out and review weekly lessons posted in Google Classroom.

 

If you have any questions or concerns you may reach me at ckennedy@saintstansschool.org.

 

Thank you,

 

Mrs. Kennedy
