Week of February 24, 2014
Our story in reading this week will be “DEX: The Heart of a Hero.” Please listen to
your child read this story each night. Reading the same story each night helps build
fluency and accuracy. There will be a vocabulary and comprehension test on Friday.
The spelling list/vocabulary words and vocabulary definitions can also be found on the
Elysian Fields ISD website. Just go to efisd.net then from the drop down menu
choose… Teacher Pages…Elementary…Second Grade…Parent Letter.
Homework Hint: Sort by “or”, “ore”
depended – counted on; relied on
exercise – activity that moves the body
gazing – looking at something fondly
hero – someone who is looked up to for doing something important or brave
overlooked – didn’t see; not noticed; looked past
sore – a feeling of pain or discomfort
sprang – jumped up quickly
studied – learned about a subject
Homework Hint: Have children make sentences with the vocabulary words.
Thanks for all your help,
Second Grade Teachers
