2P "Team Badger" Newsletter
April 22 - May 6, 2016
- Monarch Madness! We had an amazing in-class enrichment, sponsored by the PTO to kick-off our newest science unit - Butterflies! See the below link for the website they used in class. This website is a great resource, full of beautiful nature videos and information. Enjoy!
- Poetry by Charles Waters! The children were treated to an assembly with Mr. Waters, a poet, who made the art of poetry fun and interactive. Thank you so much to the Breckman family for making this happen!
- CogAT Results - Following up on a question that many of you asked at conferences, the CogAT test results are anticipated to be sent home with end of year report cards. REACH letters will be sent at that time as well.
We've also explored a few different styles of poetry before we start our next (and final!) unit, Character Study!
We will be finishing this unit next week and starting our last unit, Narrative Fiction.
The assessments for both Standard Measurement and Money (reviewed at conferences) will be coming home next week for your signature.
The butterfly and moth larvae have arrived! We will be showing them to the students on Monday. This is one of the most exciting units of the year! We will be watching how the larvae grow and change on their way to becoming butterflies and moths.
