Upcoming Economics PBL opportunity!
Do you or a family member own or work at a small local business in our community? We are looking for a speaker to talk with 2nd graders about the importance of small businesses in our community! If this is something you are interested in, please let me know! Thanks in advance for your help with this project!
Holiday gift idea!!!
Lost Library Books!
Lost and Found
If your child is missing an item (coat, lunchbox, etc.), please remind him/her to check the lost and found table located in the cafeteria. Many lost items are piling up just waiting to be found! You may wish to label any items sent to school with your child’s name in order to make locating lost items easier.

We Are Learning...
Next week in reading we will wrap up the analysis of characters in our texts. After this unit, we will dive into informational texts!
We are busy working on opinion writing! This week we discussed what it means to have a different point of view as another writer. We discuss and had a mini debate about school uniforms. We will dive into the structure of opinion writing next week!
Word study in 2nd grade includes spelling, phonics, and vocabulary development. This week our vocabulary words included: authority, ballot, enforce, candidate, and nomination! In addition to the words below, we also pick 5 words from our books that we read together in class. This week we chose smidgen, sputter, peep, surveying, and poised. Next week we will read and find five additional words!
This coming week we will focus on: voyage, harvest, settler, journey, and native.
We will continue our focus on multiplication until Thanksgiving Break!
