This Week: Officer Buckle and Gloria
Post date: Jan 8, 2019 12:15:21 PM
This week in Grade 2 we are reading an excellent realistic fiction book called Officer Buckle and Gloria. Children love this book because of the charismatic and fun character of Gloria the police dog. It is a story about practicing safety, but more importantly it is about how friends can help us in many ways. There is also the subtle lesson about how jealousy can end friendships if we aren't careful. I know the children will love reading this story this week. We have many copies in the library. If your child enjoys the read, encourage her to check it out again from the library this month.
This week students will begin learning how to write a well-organized story. This lesson will be applied net week as students write their first story of the year in the form of a true story. Please see the 1-2-3 Story Model handout here to learn more about this lesson.
This week we also have vocabulary, grammar, reading, and spelling/phonics practice. Please take some time to review the spelling and vocabulary words with your child using the weekly handout sheet and vocabulary slideshow below. Please let me know if you have any questions.
