I can’t believe its the last week before Christmas Break!

This week, we are:

Math: reviewing adding and subtraction as well as solving word problems. Our final fact fluency assessment will take place Wednesday.

Writing: writing an on-demand informational writing piece. Today, students brainstormed and researched a topic of their choice. Tomorrow, students will write the rough draft. This will be their second grade for informational writing this quarter.

Reading: reading with fluency and comprehending main ideas with reading level assessments.

Language Arts: identifying and using reflexive pronouns (herself and myself). There is no spelling assessment this week.

IB Central Idea: Relationships impact outcomes. We will wrap up our force and motion unit with a STEM Challenge tomorrow and a reflection on Wednesday.

Important Information:

STEM Challenge: Today, students planned and designed their structures for the STEM Challenge. Tomorrow, they will build with recyclables! Please send in any recycles at home!

Class Holiday Party: Our class will have our party Thursday afternoon after lunch. Thank you for the volunteers who have signed up to help out or planned to send in donations!

Book Exchange: Please send in a wrapped 2nd grade level book for our Book Exchange during the party on Thursday.
