I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! We have 3 busy weeks at school and then Christmas time!
Thursday at Creche.
Second grade has an opportunity to sing at the Creche festival in Chico on Thursday. Kerri Laufer, Alexa's mom and our Glee class teacher, has invited us to sing with the Glee class. We will be performing at 4:00 in Chico. I would like as many second graders as possible to attend. Let's carpool and get the kids down there if we need to. I know it is after school and not an official field trip, so please let me know if you can come so I have an idea. Lets meet at Achieve at 2:30 and leave at 2:45.
Biography Unit Homework
This week marks the beginning of our Famous Person unit. The students will each be studying a different person from history. Take some time with your child this week to fill out your top two choices. It does not have to be an American. Kids this age are generally really interested in civil rights. It does not have to be someone on the list provided. Much of the research and project will take place in class after the first of the year. Just getting started.
Our big focus in math is double digit addition. Regrouping is coming soon! This week in writing we will review Step Up To Writing format for expository writing. Lastly, I'm hoping each student is award of and focused on their third trimester goal. The goals written are really high quality. Let's make sure to remind them often of their goal and plan.
