Second Grade Week 40 in Review

We are winding down our school year here at Childress Academy.  We only have about 5 weeks left (20 days or so), and then we’ll take a quick break before beginning 3rd grade.  Since we school year-round, we won’t get much of a break, but it’s enough to unwind before beginning again.  I just like having to only school 4 days each week for 45 weeks as opposed to schooling 5 days per week for 36 weeks.  That’s one of the perks of homeschooling…you can do what works best for your family.  Smile  Here’s how our week went:
Health – We had a quick safety review, and we finished up our health book.
Science – We started discussing the atmosphere, and we learned how we hear sounds. 
English – This week we started diving deeper into subjects and predicates.  We learned how to identify each part, and we discussed how to find the MAIN word in each part.
Vocabulary – This week we added the words “adult, clump, curious, gratitude, herd, newcomer, plain, stalk, tusk, and wealthy” to our list of terms.  Caleb did a few exercises to reinforce the definitions of the words.
Social Studies – This week we finished up our social studies book by discussing Tomorrow’s America.  We learned all about how to be a good citizen and praying for our country and leaders.
Reading – This week we read the following books:
Scholastic Science Readers – Wolves by Carolyn B. Otto
”A Famous Statue” by Evan-Moor Publishing
George Brown, Class Clown – Trouble Magnet by Nancy Krulik
Math – This week we worked on two chapters.  We worked on Thousands and Place Value Notation, and we also discussed rounding to the thousands.  Caleb also took his Unit 2 test, and he scored 100%.
We will be taking this week off for our Spring Break.  We were going to take last week since the public schools were out; however, it rained most of the week.  So, we opted to continue schooling and hopefully have better weather this week.  We won’t be doing much, but it’ll be nice to have a break from schooling, and I can focus on SPRING cleaning!
