Classroom Halloween Celebration
I will be "tricking" them with Halloween-themed school work and "treating" them to snacks and games throughout the day. If you are able to, please send your student with a healthy or fun snack to share on Tuesday morning. I will have plates, napkins and other paper goods available. All ACS students will participate in the Costume Parade at 10:45 am. You are welcome to join the fun!
Mark Your Calendars...Field Trip!
We will be taking a trip to A Maker's Space in Paradise on Tuesday, November 14. I hope we can walk there, if the weather allows. I will need a few parents to walk and stay to supervise, and possibly drivers if the weather is stormy. A permission slip will be sent home next week with all the details.
This Week in 2nd Grade
Math- We will continue to work through Chapter 3 this week. The chapter will introduce the students to different strategies to add to 100. They are off to a great start!
Science- On Friday we will be planting our radish seeds in CD cases in hopes to discover the importance of water and dirt.
Reading/Writing- We will continue to work on reading comprehension and finding evdience to questions about the text. The students have been working diligently on their Halloween stories. These stories will be published and presented to you at PLPs. This will be a highlight for sure!
Social Studies- Food production and consumption will be further discussed and we will have activities to take us back to the "good 'ol days" on the farm.
Spelling- Since this week is filled with a lot of excitement, we will wait until next week to introduce the next spelling lists. This week we will work on 2nd grade sight words. There is a list on Spelling City for the kids to use if they want to play at home. There will be no test this week.
Due to all the fun and excitement this week holds, I will only be asking students to read for homework. They can earn a STAR for every 10 minuntes they read this week. We will collect and tally the STARS on Friday morning. There will be no spelling words or test this week.
