Ms. Reed's Super Students
- Reading Out Loud-Reading should happen every single night. Please don't think your student needs to sit in their room with a closed door reading in their head. Students should be read to often at this age! Try taking turns reading pages or reading two short books, one they read to you, and then you read the other to them. This will help with their fluency, intonation and high frequency word knowledge!

- Conferences! Thank you to all the parents that have already met with me! I know it is always challenging getting schedules moved around!

I made them Brown-Es for April Fools Day... They didn't think it was as funny as I did..
This week we learned alot!
Math- This week we have used a little bit of our area knowledge to further discuss length. We have created our own inch ruler and centimeter ruler using tiles and base ten cubes. They have had so much fun measuring around the classroom!
Reading- In reading we have been learning and reviewing how to paraphrase using different graphic organizers and have included a touch of plot and setting while reading the always loved books by Robert Munsch.
Writing- We have been exploring 4 different genres of expository writing and the features they have. We've covered book reviews, informational poems, biographies and newsletters.
Science- This week we have reviewed basic needs and environment and took our CBA on Wednesday.
Social Studies- We will be learning about human and environmental changes using The Lorax.
Kids Count Puppet Show

The Kids Count Players are a volunteer project of the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County. Created for children and dedicated to keeping them safe, these dynamic volunteers perform for kindergarten through second grade students, educating them about personal safety and boundaries, private touches and the difference between surprises and secrets. The program provides children with critical information to help them stay safe from abuse. The Kids Count Players will be performing at Carroll on Wednesday, April 20th. If you have any questions about their presentation, please contact Ms. Leven at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our second grade readers will be comparing books written by Robert Munsch.
In writing the boys and girls will draft and publish an expository piece of their choosing: a biography or class newsletter.
Our math focus will be on measuring and solving problems that involve addition or subtraction of lengths.
In science the students will explore different adaptations that allow animals to survive in their habitat.
