What's New in C2
May 2 - 6, 2016
Learning in C2
Math: We are wrapping up measurement, time, and money. We are moving into our final unit on data and graphing - focusing on tally charts, bar graphs, and pictographs. Have your child practice asking family members or friends in the neighborhood a survey question and tallying the data.
We would also like to encourage learners to continue practicing basic addition and subtraction facts on a daily basis. Your child's ability to instantly recall basic facts will support him or her as more complex operations are encountered in years to come!
Franklops - Seed Dispersal, Continents (social studies), and weathering/erosion.
Alexander - insects and plant growth needs
Davis - weathering and erosion, supply and demand (social studies)
Steindorff - growth needs of plants
Housley - growth needs of plants
Project Work Conversation Starters: Project time is winding down in C2 and our learners have learned so much from this process!
Alexander - insects and animals
Davis - restaurants and food
Franklops - Nature Trail, Beehives, Blood
Housley - insect habitats
Steindorff - pets
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?
Encourage your child to search for answers to questions and to record them. Often times learners bring in things they've done at home and are able to help further the experience and project in class.
Our second round of book clubs began this week. Ask your learner which book club he or she chose to join!
Projects: Garden Group
C5 donated plants to our garden group.
Projects: Habitat Group
Our insect habitat will also benefit the school's chickens. Ask your learner how!
We enjoyed making and delivering thank you cards to our wonderful lunchroom staff and custodians.
We love making special gifts this week!
I love watching what our learners imagine and bring to life
May 18: Mrs. Steindorff's Birthday
May 23: C2's "Last Week Luau"
May 26: Last Day of School
Last Week Luau
Don't forget to mark your calendars! Monday, May 23, C2 will celebrate the end of our 2nd grade year with a Luau.
For the luau, we will have six stations, and each class will rotate through each station:
- Musical Beach Towels
- Beach Float Relay
- Coconut Over-Under Relay
- Beach Ball Parachute
If you can help by sending an item for these stations, please sign up using the link below. If the item is not consumable, write your name on it, and we will see that it is returned to you after our celebration.
We need a few parent volunteers to run the stations. These parents will set up a station at 9:00 and run it from 9:30 to 11:00 as each class rotates through. If you can help with this, please sign up using the link below. All the materials for the station will be provided. A Lead Learner will help you with the set-up and explain how to run the station. All you have to do is show up!
At 11:00, the entire community will participate in a fun relay, and we ask a parent volunteer from each class to help with this. If you are able to help with this, please sign up using the link below. Your Lead Learner will explain how you will help at the beginning of the relay at 11:00. (The details of the relay will remain a secret until that time. Volunteers' feet may get wet.)
The picnic will last from 11:30 to 12:15, and we invite all parents to attend! A form will come home soon for you to indicate whether your child will purchase a lunch from school or bring his or her lunch from home.
