2A Classroom Update 7
Home of the Golden Lions
December 18, 2015
With 2015 coming to an end, we can't help but reflect on the incredible school year we've had so far. We are humbled and grateful to have such brilliant, caring, and hilarious children in 2A. We also appreciate your constant presence and support.
Thank you for coming to our curriculum share. The Golden Lions worked very hard on their campaign videos and were excited to present their different messages about rights, rules, and responsibilities to you. "Listen up parents!" Be on the lookout for the official campaign videos.
Thank you for wonderful parent teacher conferences. We appreciate the thoughtful conversations (with silliness sprinkled in there). We look forward to continuing our partnership and helping your children grow in their learning.
Enjoy the holiday break,
Courtney and Zondwayo

You can't get caught sleeping in 2A Connect 4 games. We show no mercy.
Uno games during choice time are equally intense. Ms. Javois' victory dance is a must see.
Golden Lion of the Week
Theo was the Golden Lion of the Week for the Week of December 11th. Here are some of the reasons his classmates nominated him:
-"He wanted to play a game that's different than the game we were playing before and collaborated with all of our ideas to make a even better game."
-"When someone shares what they did on their trip he always has a question for them and it's about themselves and their culture!"
-"In number stories he's open to trying really hard problems. He's also open to a choice in choice time that he didn't want in the first place."
- Families will be invited to our Narrative Writing Celebration where students will read their writing pieces that they have been working so hard on. It is scheduled for Friday, January 8, 2016. More information to come!
- We will be going to the Armory every other Friday beginning January 15, 2016.
- We will be visiting The Drawing Center on Tuesday, January 26, 2016. More information to come!
- The January birthday celebration is set for Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at 1:00pm. Families with students with January birthdays interested in coming can email our 2A class email.
