We hope everyone had a wonderful weekend with their families. Guided Reading folders will go home today. Please continue to read nightly. We are still working on our reading logs! Spelling tic tac toe assignments will be due this week. Please make sure that your child completes all assigned activities.
In Science we will be continuing our study on plants. This week we will continue to observe our pole bean seeds. Today we dug up our seed marked #2. The students were so excited to see roots starting to grow! They wrote and illustrated what they observed in their seed journals. We are continuing to put together one of our Spanish songs that involves plants and SALAD! Our end of the year Family Spanish Presentation has to be changed to June 13th because we have field day on June 6th. We will have a note going home soon explaining this further. In Science we are also learning about sound. Students have been discussing volume. They have also been discussing sound wave behavior. We have been classifying pictures using the words, reflect, refract, and diffract.
In Social Studies, the students loved making presents for their moms. We hope you loved them! We will be discussing Memorial Day over the next two weeks.
In Math, the second grade students have started measurement with inches. They started with an inch square instead of the ruler. The first graders are continuing with regrouping and are excited to be in their last book!
Our pen pal trip has been scheduled for May 30th . We will be leaving at 10:20 and meeting our pen pal friends in Mitchell Park! The permission slips went home last week. Please let us know if there are any parents who wish to come meet us there. Money for the trip needs to be sent in by check made out to Southold UFSD. We are eating at Brick Oven Pizza. If there are parents who wish to eat out with us they need to pay when they come. 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, which is $3.00. Have a great week!
