What's New in C2?

Think * Innovate * Create (February 1-5)

Learning in C2

Literacy- We are continuing to dig deep into nonfiction text this week. As you may recall, last semester, we spent a couple of weeks on identifying the 5 W's and How in a fictional text. Now, we are transferring that knowledge to nonfiction texts. Students will be reading and studying various pieces of nonfiction literature (magazines, library books, websites, etc) and will be able to identify the "who," "what," "when," "where," "why," and "how" and why they are important pieces of information to be able to gain from a nonfiction text.

Writing - we are wrapping up our unit on writing informational text this week and will be moving on to opinion writing next.

Math- This week, learners are finishing up their explorations of 2D and 3D shapes. They have been learning how to identify and draw them, along with being able to distinguish them based on their specific attributes (sides and angles). Next up, we'll continue our study of shapes, but learn to apply fractional concepts to it. For instance, learners will be required to divide rectangles and circles into halves, thirds, and fourths.

Project Work- Classes are gathering information about their topics through field expert visits, books, observation, and online sources. As learners are ready, they will be guided toward the design phase of the project.

C2 Needs YOU!

Our C2 lead learners would love your help! Please consider volunteering for a lunch shift for your child's class. It’s a great way to see your children during the school day, meet their friends, and help the lead learners all at the same time. Plus, the learners love seeing their parents and grandparents helping out with their class in the lunchroom! Younger siblings are always welcome to come with you during your volunteer slot! General duties include walking your child's class to the lunchroom, assisting them in line, and sitting with them at the lunch table. After lunch, you will remind them to pick up their trash and clean up their area, line them up and walk them back to the classroom.
