What's New This Week?

Language Arts

No new story this short week. We will be meeting with our buddy class for a special winter art project, as well as participating in a 2nd grade round robin activity, winter craft/food party, and school sing along!



Last week we began Topic 8 which focuses on adding two-digit numbers, and using the problem solving strategy Draw A Picture and Write A Number Sentence. This week we will continue learning how to regroup and finish up Topic 8 after our break.

Keep up with the great work on the First in Math website. This is a wonderful activity to help strengthen your child's math skills on different levels. www.firstinmath.com

Congratulations to Nathan, last week's winner on First In Math!

Field Trip News

Please mark your calendar for the 2nd Grade Field Trip to Adventure Aquarium on Thursday, May 19th.

Shortly after winter break we will be sending home permission slips, etc. There will be a few parents we can take along on the bus as chaperones. Any other parents are invited and welcome to come along, but will need to drive separately. However, any parent attending is required to have their clearances on file with the district. Below is the link to the district website with directions. It might sound daunting, but it is actually very easy. Even if you don’t plan on attending the field trip, it might be a good idea to just go ahead and complete the forms. They are required for any trip or activity where a parent would be in direct contact with children (field trips/class parties/etc.).

* On Monday please remember to send in your food or paper goods item for the Winter Party if you volunteered. Your contribution is greatly appreciated!!

* Please review your child's homework nightly, and sign their homework book. Thank you.
