Greetings 2nd Grade Parents,
Sometimes I am not even sure what month or day it is, but at least we are back at it and ready to finish up this school year. Your students have done amazing with all the changes and adjustments and I am very proud of how well they’ve adapted. Probably much better than most of us adults. That being said, we have a lot to complete in a short time so remind your students that they are in the home stretch and almost 3rd graders!!!
We have a 4-day curriculum week with our Family Day on Friday. This is a combination of our Mother’s and Father’s Day program and we hope you will be able to attend. Our class is in charge of drinks, so please send 2 dozen individual drinks with your child such as juice boxes, Capri Sun, apple juice or anything else.
We will not be doing our big solar system project this year, but I am hoping to have another art activity that will include our planets, sun, etc. It will most likely be after our ITBS testing which is next week. It is important for your child to be on time and present for each day if at all possible. Please have your students bring back their science books so we can use them in class again. We are also going to have spelling tests again whenever possible, so our first one back is going to be this THURSDAY since Friday is our Parents Day. For those students doing a modified list, have them study 1-10 and the vocabulary words.
Thank you for being so understanding during these ever-changing times. Please contact me or the school with any questions or concerns.
Spelling List 30 is on our 2nd Grade Page
Mon- write Spelling words 2x each
Tues- practice the 2's-4's multiplication and division facts and study Spelling words
