Second Grade News You Can Use
January 19-22, 2016
A Note From Mrs. Graham
Toy Day was a success. It was loud, rowdy, and fun. Our next behavior reward day will be on February 5, 2016. We will have a hibernation day in the afternoon beginning at 1:15. The students can bring in a blanket, a stuffed furry friend, and a favorite book to share. You may want to include a flashlight, too. The blankets may or may not be used to make forts during this time. It will be too dark to read under there without a flashlight. In order to participate, the class will need to keep all the letters to HIBERNATION on the board. Individuals who make poor choices with their behavior or who display symptoms of lazy ears may not be able to participate for the entire time on this day. Please help encourage your child to live up to the behavior pledge each day: I will demonstrate the love of Christ with respect, encouragement and perseverance. Also, please remember to check the planner each evening and sign the behavior grade your child receives.
Remote control cars and the racetrack were the focus of most of the boys.
Dolls, animals, and playhouses were the focus of most of the girls.
