This Week in 2B

Biography Research, Place Value, Compound Words, and Sounds

Our Learning Journey....

With our biography project being a major focus this week, students will complete their note taking using their book, websites and encyclopedias. Students are learning to extrapolate the important information from these sources while thinking about how each piece will fit into their essay. In grammar we will be exploring compound words with some fun art activities. During mathematics lessons we will be working with area and place value up to the ten-thousands. Remember that asking your student to make change while out running errands will be a great way to reinforce last week's lessons. In science we will begin to talk about sound in a very basic way. Look for notes to come home on Friday so your student can begin their presentation boards.

We Had A Stompin' Good Time!!

Country Fair!!

Congratulations to Country Fair Chairs...our very own Susanne Conley and fellow second grade mom Cori Howington for a most successful day on Saturday! Despite early morning rain and cool temperatures the day was fabulous from start to finish! Many thanks to our moms who helped man our booth. I hope you didn't get soaked with all the splishing and splashing! This was my 22nd Country Fair and I enjoyed it just as much as the first one!! Well done everyone!
