The cooler weather is here! Please make sure that your child has a warm jacket for gym and recess. We will continue to be outside. The students took a new spelling pretest. The words are in their notebooks. There is an assignment for each day. Please follow the homework sheet. Guided reading folders went home today. Please remember to sign the reading logs after your child has read the books sent home. If they are reading a chapter book please record the specific chapter they read so we can keep track. If your child needs more time to finish reading, just record on the logs so we know to keep the books in their folder. Please start sending in pizza boxes. We love seeing all the creativity! Reach for the Stars starts October 26th!
In Science, we are continuing our unit on Matter. We had an exciting lab assignment this past Friday where we made Oobleck, after listening to the story! The kids had to decide whether the slimy green substance was a solid or a liquid. It was very messy, but fun!
Our Crazy Creatures writing is almost done. What interesting characters the kids came up with! One of our students decided that her creature was always sick and when it coughed it produced letters, which then produced words when it moved. What a great idea!
In Math, the second graders are continuing with place value and will be learning the difference between standard and expanded form.
Have a great week!
