Harvest Festival

Thank you to everyone for supporting our annual Harvest Festival. I think it was the best one yet!!!!!

Thanksgiving Feast is on Friday November 22nd

I will be sending out a form to signup for things to bring for the feast later this week.

What's happening this week...

Reading- . Our weekly story is Squirrel Nutkin in our Junior Great Book. There is no trifold this week.

Language Arts- This week's spelling words are compound words. We will continue with pretests. Your child will only do homework for the spelling words they missed. They must turn in their pretest with their homework. I am trying to get a sense of what the students know before they take their pretests and study their words as it will help me design lists and lessons for them.

This week we are continuing to discuss verb tense and subject verb agreement. Point our verbs as you or your child uses the. The more they think these things are important to you, they will become important to them.

Math-- We are continuing our unit on double digit addition with and with our regrouping. We will test over this next week. I am also sending home their journals each night this week, so you can see what we have been working on in class. Please be sure they send them back each morning.

*Remember to practice math facts every day. It is so important that they are fluent in those facts. Use I can see in my reports where not everyone is practicing those math facts. When your child is ready it will progress them to the next level. No matter how much they know it will push them to the next level. Please be sure to use this daily.

Social Studies/Science--Our test over the Creek and Cherokee is this Wednesday. I sent home a review sheet on Friday. It is due on Tuesday. We will review it in class today as well. Journals will be going home each night, please make sure they come back to school each morning.

Food Drive

The Honor's Club is sponsoring our annual Food Drive for Rockdale Relief. I do not believe they are going to have a classroom contest, but I think we should with in our class. I would like to see each 2nd grade rock star bring in 10 items. I will issue a homework pass to those who bring in at least 10 items. I will also award a lunch with a friend coupon to the student who brings in the most items.
