Riverbanks Zoo Field Trip
**If you are planning to chaperone keep in mind that you must be approved by the district before you will be allowed to go with us to the zoo. I also need your payment for your admission and lunch choice by this Wednesday. **
Second Grade Musical
Sadly, I will not be able to attend. I made arrangements months ago and cannot reschedule. I have told the kids and am asking that if anyone records the musical to send it to me so I can watch it!
If your child is in Challenger, you must sign them out before they will be allowed to go to rehearsal.
PICTURE DAY IS TOMORROW!!!
I will retest this standard on Thursday, April 23rd.
We will also be working on adding 2 3-digit numbers this week. Your child should have a variety of strategies to solve these problems.
These videos can give you an inside look at how we teach the kids to use strategies to help them solve math problems.
ex.) How are the following words related?
bell peppers, grass, frogs…..(They are all green)
We have finished Reading MAP Testing
This week we are taking a close look at habitats. There will be videos and fun things for your kids to look at on Canvas in the Science section for habitats.
Please encourage your child to visit the Canvas site nightly after they complete homework for some extensions.
Animal Projects cont'd.
Each child has formed a group and chosen an animal to research. The kids are currently collecting information so that we can produce a power point presentation. We are excited to announce that we will have an entire afternoon in the next few weeks dedicated to presenting our projects. We will be inviting each of you in and other teachers around the school to watch us present.
More information to follow.
This week we are publishing our "Honey I Love" poems.
