This week we have more exciting things happening at school. There is no spelling test this week due to our Unit review week. The students will be taking portions of the exam each day on the skills they have mastered these past weeks. In science, every student will be growing their own ornamental bean plant and record their results. We are studying Holidays Around the World with writing and crafts. We have now started in math with our money lessons. In between all this the students will be having their holiday party on Wednesday from 9:00-10:30. They will be rotating around the classroom. Please enjoy your time with your child over the Winter Break. I look forward to seeing them next year.
Thank you so much for encouraging your child to read their AR book.
Have a great week.
Keep sending in those Box Tops!!! Thank you so much for doing that.
***** Please check out your child's binder. You should notice in front of their agendas clear protective sheets. The first page lists all the skills, vocabulary, and spelling information of the week. The children will get a new one each week. This is wonderful to look over with your child, and discuss what we will be covering in the classroom. The second page is their AR log sheet and backside is their AR tracking sheet. Please fill out the AR log sheet when your child is ready to take their AR test. The third sheet protector contains their ConnectEd login information, which is our online access to our Reading and Social Studies curriculum.
As you have seen, I like to include with the Math homework page (black and white), our classwork. If your child is having problems with the homework page, a great tool is to go back and look what we did in class that day. Also, some of the math strategies used are not at all how we (parents) did it. I tell the students that your parents may not understand so you will have to teach them!! They love that. If you can teach it, you know it.
Our lunch time is from 12:21-12:51 p.m. in the 2nd grade cafeteria and you are ALWAYS welcome to come and eat with your child.
