Second Grade Week 41 in Review

The 2nd grade year is quickly coming to an end.  In fact, I made the executive decision that we will OFFICIALLY be done with 2nd grade after 4 more days of schooling.  We’ll use field trips, Co-Op, art lessons, and camps to reach the remaining days needed to meet the 180 day requirement for Georgia.  So…I’m thankful that we’ll have a longer break.  I think I need it this time.  We typically only take a 2 week break between grades, but for some reason, I need longer this time.  While I love year-round schooling, the lack of a LONG break is starting to take it’s toll on me; however, the flexibility is worth it.  I think I need to just take a step back.  Then I can enter teaching 3rd grade feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. 
With all of that said, here’s how week 41 went for us: (yes, it’s been a couple of weeks since we did any schooling; however, Caleb had ITBS testing and Brian was out of town for several weeks)
Science – We discussed how the earth and the sky declare God’s glory…HE created all things, and everything was created for a purpose.  It’s amazing to see it all work together.
English – We’re finishing up our English studies for the year.  This week we discussed rewriting sentences, expanding sentences, combining subjects, and combining predicates.
Vocabulary – This week Caleb studied his words/definitions and took his test.  He scored 94%.
Reading – This week we read the following books:
Horrible Harry in Room 2B by Suzy Kline
National Geographic Kids – Sharks by Anne Schreiber
Math – This week we worked on multiple-digit column addition.  This is proving harder for Caleb than I thought it would.  So, we’ll have to spend a few extra days nailing down the concept.
How’s your school year going?  Are you as ready for it to be over as I am?
