The second grade team has decided to postpone our walking field trip until next Monday, November 5th due to the rainy forecast tomorrow.
Fire Safety permission slips are going home in your child's backpack today. Please sign them and have them returned to school by this Monday.
Michelmas is happening at our school on Friday, October 19th. This is especially a fun year for second graders because they will be looking at the 3rd graders projects, knowing that they will be participating in Michelmas next year! For those of you new to Michelmas...here's what it is.
The 3rd graders spend weeks creating mini crafts at home to sell at Michelmas at home. The gym in turned into a craft fair on Michelmas Day. All classes will have an opportunity to visit the craft fair at some point throughout the day . Students can purchase goods if they choose too. The prices for crafts range from 0.50 to 5.00...The third graders use this money, 100% of the profits, for all of their field trips.
If you wish to send your child to school with money to spend, it needs to be in a ziplock baggie, labeled with their name on it. We have been practicing exchanging money at school but this would be a great opportunity to practice at home as well. There are 23 students and only 1 of me, so I will not be with each student as they make purchases. Please send your child only with money that is ok to spend. I think 1-5 dollars is appropriate.
We have been busy in second grade!
So we have voted and we are The Super Bobcats! I will start collecting a white t-shirt from every student. It can be a plain old white tee that you no longer need (Please NO lettering or designs on them, because we will be adding our Bobcat Logo). We will be tie dying these shirts and wearing them on our field trips, field days, etc.
Last week I started having one boy and one girl Star Student each week. These students are chosen base on their positive Bobcat behavior from the week before. They get a special chair pocket on their chair with their name on it and they will get special line privileges and lunch with the teacher that week.
Just a reminder that homework and completed reading logs are due on Fridays. This week, we will have our first math assignment for homework as well!
Last week we completed our first Math Unit 1 Assessment and next week we will take our Unit 1 Wonders Assessment.
Beginning Unit 2 in Wonders there will be a challenge spelling list. If students get a 100% on their Spelling Pretest on Monday morning, they are eligible to study the Challenge list or "List B" that week. I will highlight the appropriate list for your child on the homework paper they bring home Monday.
October 29th - Walking Field Trip to Down Town - More Info and Permission slip will be coming home soon!
October 31st - Halloween Parade and Classroom Party - I will be sending home a SignUp Genius for parents to sign up for food and non food items for our Halloween Celebration...More info to come!
Snacks - Students are forgetting snacks at home. Please make sure they have money on their lunch account so they can get a goldfish snack, etc from the cafeteria if this happens. I do not have extra snacks on hand in the classroom. If you would like to donate a box of snacks, I will keep it on hand for emergency snacks in the classroom.
Once again, thank you parents for all of your support!
Please enjoy some photos of our math centers and our Reading Buddies. We went outside and collected leaves and did some leaf rubbings with our reading buddies on Friday.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
