Spotlight on 2nd Grade!

Mrs. Dawdy's Class

Week of February 29- March 2

Hello Parents!

Please read the sections below to see what's going on in the life of our class!

Working with Words

We will be taking a break from normal Working With Words lessons this week. Instead we will retest the students on all of the Word Wall Words. How well they do on these tests will help us determine what words we will be revisiting for the rest of the year.

Reading

The students will continue reading Change Makers. They will focus on the skill of using details and identifying the main topic. There is no test this week. J

Math

The stars will finish their Module on arrays and even/odd numbers. Then they will take their End of Module Test for the rest of the week. So please send them with snacks to keep them fueled up!

Writing

The students will continue writing informational pieces this week. With the new text, we will prepare for their End of Quarter Assessment next week. We will practice writing informational pieces, adding in introductions and conclusions, adjectives, and simple/compound sentences.

Announcements!

· This week the students will be preparing and making the final adjustments for conferences. As stated, our conferences will be STUDENT-LED! That means that the students must be there! They have been preparing to run this meeting and are very excited to share their learning experiences with you. We all appreciate your support during conference time. :)

· We will be filling out field trip forms during conferences. Feel free to bring the $5 to conferences to get it out of the way!

· There will be no school on Thursday and Friday. Enjoy the long weekend!
