This Week: Diary of a Spider

Post date: Sep 29, 2019 3:30:25 AM

This week Grade 2 is moving on in Journeys to Diary of a Spider. This is a wonderful little book by Doreen Cronin that takes a comical look at life through the eyes of a spider (if the spider thought and lived like we did that is.) Ms. Cronin has written several of these books with titles such as Diary of a Worm and Diary of a Fly. Both of those are in our Happy Kids library I believe. She also writes the great "duck books" about a scheming duck on a farm. Click-Clack-Moo is one we will read later this year. You can see a complete list of her books here. As always we will begin the week looking at our vocabulary words, move into grammar on Wednesday, read the selection on Thursday, and then do a writing assignment on Friday. The spelling test will also be on Friday. Please remember to help your child study for the tests. Below is the weekly handout for this week. On it you will find all of the spelling and vocabulary words along with some grammar practice. You can also find a slideshow for practicing vocabulary below. Please encourage your child to practice. We will also be wrapping up our Coats of Arms this week. We just have to wrap up the writing. They will be posted on the 2F landing of the building for all to see on by the end of the week. I will post a few pictures later this week.
