We are Beautiful!
Cooperation and a Love for One Another
We have been having some difficulty letting go of who we feel is our only friend. We focused on it last week during Language Arts and made a Poppet to show all the groups we are a part of, and a bunch of other subtle messages in class. We also had Mrs. Noble, our guidance counselor, talk with us about being friends with many people and allowing relationships to naturally happen.
Homework- Read and Respond!
If they did not do this last night, please go over it with them and remind them to make up what they need to. They earn auction money, special privileges for doing their homework, attend Friday Fun, and of course... above all else... feel good about themselves as responsible 2nd Graders!!
Please know that the kids have VERY limited homework and hopefully this free feeling of just reading and responding is a lot easier to handle than packets, etc.
If they feel that homework does not have a purpose and does not need to be completed by them and checked by you, they still need to understand the component of a triad of support by you, me, and the child. The existence of an expectation at any age is a good thing. Thank you for your continued support!
There are kids going to Mrs. McGee, our reading specialist, attending groups with us during the week, and attending the Read Naturally Lab starting Monday, October 5th. You received a letter today if your child is attending. So, if you signed up for reading groups, I would like to ask who would like to be placed in the following areas.
* Higher leveled reading group (group of 4 kids) - (Possibly Tuesdays)
* Fluency support- (Tuesday or Wednesday)
* Independent Practice Support-Monitor and help the kids who needs extra assistance on Morning Practice. Tues.-Thursday. Anytime from 11:10-12:00.
* Fine Motor Lab (Wednesdays from 11:45-12:15.) Work with kids who need extra assistance with developing fine motor skills. I would like to have at least 2 parents shown how to work this lab.
We are not going to conduct math volunteer time for now. I have my higher kids doing accelerated work and will be working with partners for their next project.
I will let you know if this need changes.
Thank you so much!!
Spelling: The kids brought their test home from last Friday. They did a fabulous job studying and learning the spelling pattern. Thank you for your support!
