Scholastic Book Fair

The Scholastic Book Fair will be taking place in the Media Center this week!  Check out Dawn Alexander’s blog on the East Side Homepage for more information.  Our class will be visiting the book fair on Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 10:35-10:55 if you’d like to join us.

We are back online!

I’m excited to let you know that both RAZ Kidz and IXL are now up and running!  Please allow your child to get more familiar with non-fiction text in their library of RAZ Kidz books as well as practicing place value, coin word problems, and double digit addition/subtraction through the IXL website.  Thank you so much PTA!

Pumpkin Projects

The Wise Guys did a fantastic job presenting their pumpkin projects. I was super proud of their asking & answering of questions. The topics were unique in presentation as well as their amazing artwork that accompanied them!

We are now finished with the display of hard work and are allowing the pumpkins to come home at this time.  Please feel free to come any day this week to collect and enjoy at home.

Thank you for assisting your child with their research and presentation.

Home of the Wise Guys!

Thank you for your presence at conferences this week.  I have enjoyed the time spent with you discussing the progress of your child’s Second Grade development.  As discussed, we are now introducing elements of nonfiction reading and writing.  Soon, they will be bringing home “published pieces” they’ve produced.  Stay tuned…
