In Math this week we took our Unit 7 Test and also started our new unit on fractions.  We practiced making slices on a "cake" and also making fractions with different shapes.

For Writing this week we started our unit on poetry with a focus on acrostic poems.  We wrote a poem together as a class about being in Second Grade and then the students wrote their own acrostics as well.

In Reading this week we finished talking about the Author's Purpose of Entertainment.  We read many different Dr. Seuss books to see how some books are written simply for us to enjoy.  This week in Bible, we started talking about the Parables of Jesus.  These are stories that Jesus told in order to teach the people something about the Kingdom on God.  We learned about the Parable of the Sower, the Parable of the Weeds, and the Parable of the Mustard Seed and Yeast.

Today we also had the chance to attend the Culture Fair in the 3rd-5th grade classrooms.  We enjoyed getting to hear about different countries in South America, Africa, and Asia.  Because of Culture Fair, we also got to enjoy a picnic lunch outside on this beautiful day!
