What's New in C2?

April 11-15

Learning in C2

Literacy: April is National Poetry Month! To celebrate, learners are reading and writing poems. Poets use language to help readers develop a mental image, and learners are practicing creating visualizations from poems. We are also learning about different tools authors use to help their works come alive for readers (alliteration, onomatopoeia, simile, etc.). Learners will soon be writing and publishing their own poetry!


Math: We are learning about measurement, time, and money. Additionally (pun intended), we encourage learners to continue practicing basic addition and subtraction facts on a daily basis. Your child's ability to instantly recall of basic facts will support him or her as more complex operations are encountered in years to come.


Project Work Conversation Starters: Use the following questions to learn more about your child's project work.


  • What is the focus of your project?
  • Why is your project important?
  • What have you accomplished this week during project time?
  • What has gone well this week during project time?
  • What has not gone well this week during project time, and what are your ideas for improving it?

Wish Lists

Due to the nature of our learning, our students go through a lot of supplies. We happily order and buy supplies regularly, but these are some of the most frequently needed items. *We are grateful to receive items, but it is in no way expected.*
