Hope Lutheran School

Grade 2

Week of September 18, 2018



We are beginning our formal literacy lessons with our new curriculum this week.  Our theme book is a Henry and Mudge selection.  We will be reviewing the short a and short i sounds, reviewing some sight words, working with vocabulary connected with the Henry and Mudge selection and talking about what makes a good pet.


High frequency words to review—around, be, five, help, next, or pull, take, until, walked


Spelling words—sad, dig, jam, glad, list, win, flat, if, fix, rip, kit, mask



Math classes this week will complete the unit on place value—hundreds, tens, and ones.  We will begin the unit on addition of up to 3-digit numbers with and without regrouping.  It is important that students begin adding from the ones place and move backwards to the hundreds place.



Stories this week are God blessing Abram (Abraham), Isaac blesses his sons, and Jacob’s ladder.


Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go.  Genesis 28:15


Social Studies

This week we are continuing our study of different types of communities particularly urban (city), rural (farm), and suburb (bedroom community outside a city).


Seattle Children’s Theatre field trip

Our class will be going to the Seattle Children’s Theatre on Tuesday, November 6th, for a 12:45 pm performance of “The Velveteen Rabbit”.   Permission slips are in today’s envelope and are due along with the payment by a week from next Tuesday, October 2nd.  We do have extra tickets for family members.  The cost is $14.50 per person (students and adults) which includes theatre admission and some money for parking which can be paid by cash or check made out to “Nancy Tagge”—not to the school.  The Seattle Children’s Theatre requires payment a month in advance and does not give refunds.  They do not accept passes or exchanges for school performances.


Scholastic Book orders

About once a month Scholastic Book Club orders are sent home.  If you wish to order books for your child, you can order online with a credit card payment (class code is GZV4G) or return the paper order to school with a check made out to “Scholastic “Book Clubs”.  Please do not send cash.  The books will be delivered to school about a week after I submit the order here at school.  If you do not wish to participate, please recycle the order form at home.


Classroom help

There is still room for some classroom help particularly stuffing Tuesday envelopes each Tuesday afternoon.  Please contact me if you can help.
