Its Been a Great Week!

This week we started reading The Music of the Dolphins. We have had some great discussion via Google Classroom and in class. In writing, we are continuing to work on poems. We are being precise and powerful with our words. In math for second graders, we just finished up unit 5 this week. You should have received your child's test on Thursday. We started a new Social Studies unit this week. It is about the environment.

Our Week in Review

Things to Look Forward to Next Week!

Next week, we will continue to work on our chapter book and finish it up. We will start our last unit for Social Studies for this semester. It will continue with the helping the environment theme. In math for the second graders, we will start unit 6. This will be about geometry.

Reminders

I am starting a new discipline plan starting next week. I have talked about it with the kids already, and I have been pointing out things that would make them "lose a token." I have attached the classroom behavior plan, so that you can look at it. I have had several requests for behavior updates, and I thought this would be a way I could keep in touch with all of you about your child's behavior. I will be sending home a token report every Friday.
