Miss Freije's Second Grade News - September 1st
Polar Bear Mania!
Polar Bear Adoption Project
When: September 3rd - 6th
Where: Collection containers will be placed in the school commons
What we Need: Dimes!
Why dimes? - Counting by 10s is an important second grade skill we will need to practice. This project has given our class lots of opportunities to practice important academic skills: reading informational text, graphic organizers, online research, and good advertising. We look forward to other great skills we will learn as the project continues!
Thank you to all of the parents who have volunteered to help our class this year! There will be a volunteerspot.com link coming soon with more information.
Questions from Meet the Teacher Night
A: Yes, updates (like this one) will be coming to your inbox periodically. These messages will have important information about projects and changes taking place in our classroom. For in class and specials information, your child's agenda is the place to look. Students fill out their agenda as a part of morning procedures and then we debrief about our goals at the end of each day. Each week your child's agenda will have the goals for each subject as well as important reminders for when to wear shoes for PE (PE reminders are written above the day we have PE). Please take time each night to ask your child about the day's goals and behavior. We are excited to use agendas for communication as they give students the opportunity to take more responsibility for their own learning.
Q: Will the kids read out loud to teachers or other kids?
A: I would love to make this happen. Right now we are still getting settled into our routines, so I am unsure how everything will work out. There may be an opportunity to be reading buddies with a kindergarten class periodically.
