will have a short message and who it is from with a piece of candy. Please fill
out the form below and return it with the money to your child's teacher NO LATER

What's happening this week...
Reading- Our story this week is Firefighter. Please read this every night. There is no trifold this week, instead there is a comprehension sheet that is not due until Friday. Students should have no problem completing this rather quickly. I have also changed up our Vocabulary homework. Please check over this with your child. Students took a pretest today as well.
We are wrapping up our Fairy tale, Folktale and Fable unit this week by completing our stories for our Student Treasures book. Students have worked hard to include elements from their chosen genre in their retellings. The are looking great!
Language Arts- Our spelling pattern this week will focus on suffixes -ful, -er, -ly, and -or. We will review adjectives and adverbs this week.
Math-- We will test over time on Friday. I have sent home several practice sheets, showing how we are calculating elapsed time. I will send home another on Tuesday.
Social Studies/Science-- Our unit over Energy was a short one and we will be testing over it on Thursday.
Student Treasures Book Forms
We are writing our own stories in second grade that will be turned into a book!!!! We are very excited and will start them this week. I need everyone to return their forms by FRIDAY whether you are purchasing one or not so I can get a free copy for the class.
COLD AND FLU SEASON
We have had several cases of the type A flu In an effort not to spread germs, please keep your child at home if they are running a fever or have vomited. They need to be fever and vomit free for 24 hours before returning to school. Remind them to sneeze and cough into the crook of their elbow. They have been awesome with practicing that in class as well as washing their hands and using hand sanitizer!
