Sorry for the delay in getting this newsletter out! Too many things on my Weekend To Do list!!
Our last 2nd grade field trip is this Wednesday!
*Sack lunch (Arush has one ordered from the cafeteria)
*$12.00 cash for chaperones and any adult admittance to pay on the day of to a designated chaperone in Mrs. Morgan's class
*Chaperones please bring a tote bag or a backpack to carry your students' lunches
Our bus riding chaperones will be: Raelanna's mom, Lana's mom, Chase's mom, Treven's mom, and Joseph's mom. Additional adults that will be joining us there: Abby's mom, Lusia's mom, Mason R.'s dad, and Mason T.'s dad.
Our bus will leave at about 10:15 am with an expected arrival time of 10:40sh. We will walk to, and lunch, weather permitting, on the lawn of Sutter's Fort. Our show, "Charlotte's Web" begins at 11:30 am. So exciting!
* ELA- We finished "Charlotte's Web" just in time for our field trip! We focused on interesting vocabulary words, defining them, identifying synonyms, and writing them in sentences. We also learned how to use quotation marks in our writing! In Spelling, we took Week #7 post test and will take Week #8 pre-test today (Monday). To study at home, click on Spelling City on our Resources page. We continue to practice opinion writing.
* Math- We took a formative assessment on Measuring and will begin geometry soon. Please continue to review double and triple digit addition and subtraction at home. Being fluid with math facts is most helpful, too!
* Earth Systems and Landforms unit- we will be looking at vocabulary and parts of speech this week.
* STEM- we built leprechaun traps using collaboration, classroom items, and creativity! Lucky the Leprechaun visited over the weekend and made a mess, left a couple of mischievous messages, and rewarded us for our efforts!
Coming Home Today:
