Dear Families,

We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. We DID NOT catch the leprechaun, in case you were wondering. We did enjoy our day and loved following the clues that the leprechaun left! Guided Reading folders will go home today. Spelling tic, tac, toe is due this week. Please make sure that your child completes the three assignments and then takes a practice test on Thursday night. Primary 2 is looking forward to some Spring weather! As an extra incentive the students will be working towards earning additional recess time outside at the end of the day once or twice a week.

In Social Studies, in addition to studying communities, students will be discussing Spring. We will be reading various picture books, painting, and completing writing assignments on this way over due season!

In Math, first graders are collecting, sorting, and organizing data. The second graders have started multiplication with the use of repeated addition.

In Science, Primary 2 is finishing up the unit on Matter and will be moving on to Light and Shadows.

In writing, Primary 2 is working with their author study on Gail Gibbons. The students recently read the story, Ladybugs which was filled with amazing facts about them! They are going to write some of these facts and paint a ladybug /plate!!

Have a great week!
