Mrs. Dufresne's Second Grade
November 10-14, 2014
In spelling we have been focusing on words that have a double consonant and a VCV pattern like pilot, planet, and travel.
Our Math focus is adding double digit numbers. We are learning several strategies to help students add double digits. It is a big concept and most students could use some extra practice! We will be starting on math facts to work towards the "Mustang Million". Look for more details in the next few newsletters!
In Science we are studying the states of matter and have been prepping for Veteran's Day in Social Studies.
We will be sending home information and materials for chocolate sales soon. We are hoping to earn money to take the students on a field trip to Missoula for the Spectrum Science museum in the Spring and a movie trip in December!
The Fun Run was a blast! Thank you for the pledges that have been turned in and a quick reminder to please turn in pledges by Friday. We are so appreciative for funds for the classroom. We are planning on using the money to buy Christmas craft / art supplies and writing journals.
You will be amazed by what your kids are able to do during technology time! They are learning to type correctly and are now able to log on to the Acer lab and navigate the Daly website. We thrilled to have 3 classroom computers, an iPad and a Smart Board in our classroom.
