Thank you to all the families that attended curriculum night last night! I appreciated meeting with you and sharing conversations about QAE and second grade. For those of you unable to attend, I have attached the handout from the evening to the newsletter. Take a look, and let me know if you have any questions.
Congratulations to your students! They earned their first Unity Celebration. A Unity Celebration is my way of honoring students working together as a team. Students earn a unity point by completing a task together or when someone from the school or community notices their thoughtfulness and/or hard work. From the beginning of the year until last week, students have gained these points. Our goal was 25. Now we will celebrate!
On Monday, October 17 students can wear pajamas and bring a stuffed animal that fits in their backpack. We will then read to our stuffies for 30 minutes in the afternoon. Students came up with and then voted on this idea in class meeting :) . I will send out a reminder on Friday, October 14 (no school that day!) and then Monday morning to make sure everyone remembers.
This week's run down:
Math: Students finished up the place value unit by comparing and ordering 3-digit numbers, reviewed for the unit assessment, and then took the unit assessment.
Reading: Students started to identify craft moves in Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin, and in their own books; students found places in their books where the authors made them laugh, feel a strong emotion, or go, "Wow!"
Writing: Students starting using the craft moves they noticed from their reading in their writing!
Science: Students did settling tests in water of clay, sand and humus. We also observed our compost with and without worms, writing down our observations.
