Class Updates!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I am sorry about the technology issues during the Mother's Day Tea. I will be sending home the video the students made this week! I thought it was really awesome that the children still wanted to share how much they loved you all. Thank you to Avery's mom for the decorations and cookies!

Bring your own device is going awesome! We are getting about 10 devices every day! WOOHOO! This week we will be working with Padlet to collaborate and using KidRex to research the frog's life cycle.

Homework was due today. The homework for this week will go home tomorrow (Tuesday) and be due Monday, again. Please remember to read every night for 30 minutes and complete the reading log. If you have any questions about homework, please email me.

I had a few more conferences this week! It has been great meeting with you all and communicating about our expectations for the rest of the year. Here is the link for the Sign-up Genius. We can still meet this week!

Our MOSI field trip is May 18th. The money is due this Friday, May 13th. WE NEED CHAPERONES! Thank you to Avery's mom, who will be joining us! It is $8 for adults to go. You will pay at MOSI. Please make sure to check with Mrs. McGee to see if you have your SERVE form.

Please remember to check the agenda every night for notes. Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns! Also, follow us on Twitter and Instagram @2ndgrdscoop to see what's going on in the classroom.

Have a great week!

Writing - We will respond to Yeh-Shen about how the characters are treated differently.
