November Update!

Parents,

We are so excited to share some resources with you as we head into the holiday season, as we know you all will need things to help fill your students extra time. These websites are wonderful tools to help your child improve their reading and math skills. Each student should have a log in code located in their agenda for both websites. Please reach out to us if you need assistance with these resources, we are happy to help!

We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

January Was Jovial

We had a wonderful first month of the second half of second grade! Our kiddos were off to a great start, learning about opinion writing and diving into longer chapter books. Students worked with manipulatives to solve word problems and add within 1,000! We are looking forward to another month of learning and fun!

December was Delightful!

We had an wonderful December! Students loved getting to see the Nutcracker live and listening to the Polar Express aboard the Polar Express train. They received some wonderful gifts from Ms. Murphy, Ms. Waters, and Ms. Hollifield. We wrapped up our units on nonfiction reading and writing and completed all of our mid-point assessments. Students and teachers are excited to get started on the second half of the year!

October was a wonderful month full of learning! We greatly enjoyed meeting with our families to discuss student progress during conference week. We had a blast listening to our Guest Readers for our annual Day of Hope. Students worked together to create a writing piece and pumpkin to celebrate their favorite books from the year. We are so proud of how much our students are growing!

September Was Superb!

We had a great month of learning! We grew our knowledge of numbers and place value into the 1,000’s place! We used our learning to create numbers in different forms and compare them.  We also learned about Sequoyah, healthy food choices, and the states of matter. Students wrapped up the month with a week of fun and relaxation during fall break. We’re so excited to see all the learning and fun October has to bring!
