Hello Everyone,

We are one week away from our PBL Landmark Showcase! IF you aren't busy and would like to join us, please come to the cafeteria on Friday, Nov. 8th anytime from 9-10:00 am. We would love for you to see what all of the second graders have been working on so hard at school! Here is the INVITE!

Things to Do/Remember:

1. Remember that Homework is removed from the website every Friday afternoon unless I'm absent.

4. You'll need a background check for volunteering & field trips: RRISD Volunteer Link

5. Have your child join the Birthday Book Club. It's on the librarian's page but here's a quicker way to get there: Birthday Book Club Link

What We'll Be Learning...

Math- We are studying money for those who need the extra time with counting coins. For those who can already count money, we'll have a money menu full of activities such as buying items but only spending a certain amount. There will be websites to interact with and problems to solve.

Social Studies- We are having a PBL Landmark Showcase on Friday, November 8th from 9:00-10:00 am. Everyone is invited so bring a friend or family member and come learn about Round Rock!! I will be asking for help on finishing projects this week during school.

Writing- We will pick up this area once our PBL projects are finished. We are doing so much writing in PBL time that we need the rest of our day for other areas!

Reading- We will continue to study the non-fiction features of books and websites.

Spelling/Handwriting- We are working on spelling and handwriting through our PBL project right now. Did you know you have to have good handwriting and check the spelling of words so that your audience/readers can understand your message?
