A heartfelt thank you to all parents who carved out the time to meet with me this week for our conference. I appreciate your time and dedication towards your children! Second grade is an important developmental year; thank you for continuing to encourage, support, model, and be present for your children! Thank you also for your feedback on our 2nd grade homework policy; I will represent your voices at our next teacher team meeting. If you have any other questions or thoughts, please email me.
Homework over the Break: Please continue to read as often as possible between the fun and family time! Families who would like more, can visit our resources page.
Curriculum Highlights: We learned about the Pilgrims, the Wampanoag, the Mayflower, and Thanksgiving through our reading and virtual field tripping #GEOshow. We read Molly's Pilgrim and learned that we are a country of pilgrims and not all pilgrims come from 17th century England. We are and live amongst modern pilgrims, too! We created and wrote Thanksgiving cards to our friends and families. We also chose and began researching our Endangered Animals.
