2nd Grade News from Room 219

10-14-16

Short week next week -

There are some changes to our homework schedule since there isn't school next Thursday and Friday. One is RAH. We are in the midst of doing Reader's Theater, which we will do every 5th week. We put on plays for each other. (At the end of the year we'll invite you all to watch a play!) So for this week's RAH, the kids wrote "books at home" on line 5. You can write down titles IF you'd like, or you can simply read & sign. Your signature tells me you listened to your child read at home. Thanks!

This week's homework

RAH - See note above** Due by Wednesday 10/19

Math - due by Tuesday 10/18

Spelling homework coming home today, too - due on Monday.

No Speak-Up next week due to the short week. I will send a new one on Wednesday.


No Library next week either, so hang onto those books and read them again. (great fluency practice!)
