What's New in C2

January 19-22

Introducing Mr. Matt from the Pike Road Library

We are excited to have Mr. Matt come once a month to read to our kids. His first visit was this past Tuesday, and he shared with us two books about making friends: "Yo! Yes?" by Chris Raschka and "Will You Be My Friend?" by Peter Brown. We can already say the kids can't wait for Mr. Matt's return!

Learning in C2

Literacy- We are expanding our knowledge of nonfiction text features (headings, pictures, captions, diagrams, etc.) and how readers use them to better understand a text. We are applying what we've learned about nonfiction text features to our own writing of informational texts. Learners are continuing to review main idea and key details. We'll be moving into the five W's and How of nonfiction text.

Math- Learners are solving addition and subtraction word problems and continuing to explore foundational multiplication skills (arrays). Learners will begin to explore specific attributes of shapes with a given number of angles or equal faces.

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.
