What's New This Week?

Young Authors Breakfast

Just a reminder that our Young Authors breakfast is this Wednesday morning between 8:15 - 9:15. Please enter through the main office and don't forget to send in your RSVP if you haven't already.

Can't wait for you to see all of our aspiring authors' work!

Language Arts

This week we will be finalizing our Research PowerPoint presentation and practicing how to be effective speakers! Students will be learning how to project their voice, make eye contact with the audience, elaborate the information on their slides, and appropriate body language. This is such a fun way to commence our school year and demonstrate how your child is ready for 3rd grade!

Spelling Words of the Week

A big THANK YOU to parents for helping your child to practice and study their spelling words this year!

The Spelling City website will remain up and running over the summer should your child wish to continue practicing our word lists! Click here to go visit the Spelling City website for some fun practice: http://www.crsd.org/Page/16692


We have begun Topic 19 - Multiplication and your child is really enjoying this concept! We begin with demonstrating how repeated addition is multiplication, building arrays, multiplying in any order, and writing multiplication stories. Helping your child to practice basic multiplication facts over the summer will place them at an advantage for 3rd grade math!

Congratulations Lizzie, our First In Math winner last week! Please continue to encourage your child to visit this website over the summer to help retain math skills. Thank you! www.firstinmath.com
