Mr. Horst is teacher for the day on Tuesday! Free dress for all. Should be a fun day!
Pollination and other Science
We started a new mini science unit on Pollinators last week. Students already have a great understanding from first grade on how pollination takes place. We are going to expand on this with some discussions and activities about how to increase the numbers of pollinators.
We will finish our chapter on 3 digit addition and subtraction this week. As the year progresses we will continue working on problem solving strategies using addition and subtraction. Our next math unit is Geometry. In 2nd grade Geometry students will classify, name and describe shapes.
Our 2nd and 3rd grade musical should be great this year. The students have been working hard and are ready to rock! It takes place in a swamp and is themed around acceptance. Lots of Virtues are included in the musical. The date is still up the air. It will be either May 4th or 12th. I should know this week. When I know, you will know.
At the moment we are working with Stories both for reading comprehension and writing. Students are learning story elements such as having a conflict of problem in their story. The students have tons of enthusiasm for story writing right now. We are working to learn how to make the stories more interesting, flow and make sense to the reader.
May 11 - Field Trip
We are going to see Stunt Dogs at Laxson Auditorium on May 11th. More information to come. Put it on your calendars. We will need parent drivers.
