We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend with their families. Guided Reading folders will go home on today. Primary 2 has started a novel unit reading Muggie Maggie as a whole class. They are so excited about this. We will be reading chapters together in the library and completing response work in a study packet. The kids also picked an additional Beverly Cleary book to read as a free read. Spelling packets will be due this week. The list is a little tricky. Please try to practice as much as you can.
The chick and duck eggs did not hatch. We were all very sad but we are trying it again! We have seven more chick eggs that were put in the incubator last week so keep your fingers crossed! Primary 2 is very excited about their plants beginning to grow. They are busy checking heights and making sure they get lots of water.
In celebration of Memorial Day Primary 2 worked with their buddies and constructed flags from popsicle sticks! We read a story called, The Wall by Eve Bunting.
All of our Spring Aimsweb screenings are completed for reading and math. We are recommending a few students for summer school to try to strengthen skills to better meet the benchmarks. This is just a recommendation and not a requirement!
Our pen pal trip has been scheduled for May 31st . If you haven’t done so already, please send in the permission slip and money. Money for the trip needs to be sent in cash. If parents want to order pizza, they need to send in an additional $7.00. We will be leaving at 10:20 and meeting our pen pal friends in Mitchell Park! If parents wish to get on the Ferry with us they need to be prepared to pay for the walk on price on the day of the trip.
Have a great week!
