Second Grade – Journal
What a PRAYERFUL First Communion celebration we had on Saturday. Thirty-five young children grew even closer to Christ. In their beautiful white or cream dresses and veils for the girls, white, black, or navy blue suits for boys, they adorned the Church with their vibrant spirits and subtle attitudes. We praise and thank God for them. Thank you parents, Godparents, grandparents and many others who attended this beautiful celebration. God bless you.
This week in reading, we will read a realistic fiction, My Dog is Lost, by Ezra Jack Keats. We will follow Juanito as he goes through the streets of New York looking for his shaggy dog Pepito. Pepito is lost. Juanito’s problem is compounded by the fact that he only speaks Spanish. Some children he encountered along the way helped him find Pepito. We will be learning some Spanish words with which to impress Senora Anna during our Spanish lesson.
In math, we have ended our study of the number of faces, sides, edges, and vertices of plane and solid shapes. We will review and complete chapter assessments this week. We will introduce telling time by the hour, half hour, and five minute intervals.
We will continue with MARE science activities this week. Our classroom will be a home for some hermit crabs. We will also examine what happens to ocean life when oil spills in the ocean.

Here is a quick something you can do on Wednesday mornings after you drop the kids off at school. Join Ms. Wilkie:
A note from Ms. Wilkie’s desk:
Lastly, do you enjoy walking and chatting? I invite each of you to join me on the remaining Wednesday mornings of this school year. We will leave the campus directly after morning assembly for a half an hour walk around our beautiful neighborhood. It is important to me to be available to the parents of St. Jerome to answer questions and catch up regarding various activities and events at the school, and I thought that this would be a great way to accomplish that and promote healthy habits at the same time. There is no need to RSVP, and you can join me for 1 or more Wednesdays. I hope you will put on your tennis shoes and join me!
