Mrs. Smith 2nd Grade 2015-2016
A Message from Mrs. Smith...
We officially have been in school for more than 100 days! The children celebrated the 100th day of school by creating a design using the numbers 1-0-0. It is great to see such creative minds. We are kicking off this month with our American Heart Association fundraiser. Each child went home with a fundraiser packet and this event will go until February 12th. Our class is competing against all the other classes in the school to see which room will raise the most money. Please help our class reach this goal!
In a few days we will be celebrating Valentine's Day. I often get parents asking what can their child bring in for the class. First, please know this is completely optional for your child to bring in a valentine for the class. I do ask that if your child brings in a valentine and/or a token of kindness (Ex. stickers, pencils, erasers, etc) that it is for the entire class. We have a total of 19 students (9 boys, 10 girls). Unfortunately, children cannot pass out candy or any type of food to the class. We will celebrate Valentine's Day on Friday, Feb. 12th. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
Remember to read 20 minutes every night and to fill out February's Book-It. This is due on March 1st!
We also read The Missing Mitten Mystery by Steven Kellogg. It was a great book to incorporate adjectives to describe a missing mitten which each student decorated at home. We are finishing up our news report on their missing mitten. Once those are finished being published, we will begin to record their news report. I can't wait to hear their reports!
I want to remind parents to have their child go on Moby Max and Raz Kids at home. It is important for students to continue to practice reading and comprehension skills. If you can't find your child's login information, please contact me and I will email you their login information.
