Miss Feaster's Newsletter
Week of March 23, 2015
What's going on this week?
It is an exciting week in Miss Feaster's second grade class! In reading, we are working on identifying the parts of a story and explaining how they connect. In social studies, we are introducing the 3 branches of government (watch School House Rock video below), and in science we are looking at the stages of metamorphosis in butterflies and frogs.
This week in math class we are working on adding and subtracting money. We are also introducing Money Math Word Problems into the mix. The kids are having a great time beginning to understand how money math works in the real world. Please encourage them to help you count, add, and subtract money when you are at the grocery store and around town. Below is a PBS Learning Media game to help enforce this topic!
We have Phys. Ed. every Wednesday afternoon. Please remember that students need to be dressed in sneakers and active clothing!
Field trip permission slips are due by Friday, March 27. More information about the trip to the state capitol is located below.
Remember that we are on Spring Vacation from Thursday, April 2 to Monday, April 4. Enjoy your time off!
