Mrs. Hawk's 2nd grade class!
I moved to Lillington this past summer with my husband. We have been married for 5 years and have three crazy, loving dogs that keep us busy.

What We're Learning
We are spending this week cementing the kids' knowledge of telling time with analogue and digital clocks. They should now be able to tell time to the nearest 5 minutes (and some of them have even picked up on telling time to the minute!) Stop your student at home and ask them to tell you what time it is using an analogue clock or watch. Practice makes perfect!
In reading and writing, we have finished up mClass testing and are really having fun with our nonfiction unit. Students are reading biographies about different people and learning about their lives. We are also spending time working on our creative writing skills.
A Few Reminders
- Don't forget to remind your child to read for at least 15 minutes each night. At this rate, everyone can meet their monthly goal of 300 minutes!
Keep recording reading minutes in the May Reading Log! Our goal is for each child to read 300 minutes this month! (These are due at the beginning of June)
ACPS 2nd grade cubs have set a goal to read 300 minutes each month! 300 total minutes earns a student a special reading charm for his/her reading necklace at school. And turn in your April log if you haven't already!
Students are often thirsty throughout the day. To cut down on trips to the water fountain, students are allowed to keep a water bottle on their desk. To help cut down on accidents, please make sure that the water bottle stays securely closed, and contains only water, no juice or sports drinks that could leave a sticky mess.
Since we have lunch at 10:40 each day, students are usually hungry again before they get home from school. Students may bring a healthy snack to eat during the last 10 minutes of the day as we are packing up and preparing for dismissal.
