I am looking forward to meeting with you and your student this week for 2nd Trimester Conferences. It is hard to believe we are 2/3 of the way done with 2nd grade! If you need a reminder of the date and time of your conference, please email me. Your 2nd grader will be leading the conference, before handing the baton to yours truly. Our time is precious and we are on a tight schedule, please be prompt. Thank you!
Last NWEA Testing Coming Around the Corner!
Our schedule for Spring NWEA Testing is as follows:
Tuesday, 3/27--NWEA Language Test
Wednesday, 3/28--NWEA Reading Test
Friday, 3/30--NWEA Math Test
All testing will begin at 10:30 am. Please ensure students are present, rested, and well nourished! Thank so much!
In Reading, we started our class chapter book, "Charlotte's Web" and have been working on vocabulary and comprehension questions related to each chapter. In Science, we continue to learn about Landforms and Bodies of Water. In Math, we took a Pre-test on Money and worked in our Money activity boxes. In Writing, we wrote farewell thank you notes to Ms. Sahara, our 6th grade class assistant whose time with us ended on Friday. We finished up trimester assessments and are preparing for our conferences. Some of us continue to enjoy interacting with other 2nd graders during Game Club at Friday Lunch Recess time. We are excited about the re-opening of our beautiful library! Remember to return books on Mondays, our Library Day!
A Note from Maestra Galvan:
¡Hola a todos! This is Maestra Galván, your student's Spanish teacher. Here are a few quick updates for you.
- We will have a substitute in Spanish class for the weeks of 3/19 and 3/26 while I conduct ELPAC testing for all K-3 English learners.
- K-3 Students are invited to participate in the International Festival Spanish performance on April, 7th. Please have your student in the gym by 3:50 if they plan to sing with us on stage. We start singing at 4:00. Encourage your student to practice the songs at home: Los Pollitos, Un Elefante se Balanceaba and Los Patitos.
- Contact me at email@example.com if your 1st - 3rd grade student needs log-in information to practice Spanish at home with Rockalingua.
