Greetings... And Some Catching Up To Do...
Greetings Second Graders and Families! We've had some amazing V.I.P.s lately and thought we should share! Kai, Clay, and Owen have all enjoyed their special moment talking about their families, favorite people and places, and even their second grade super powers! Careful listeners asked curious questions and made detailed comments and observations about our V.I.P.s.
We also thought Natalie deserved a "shout out" for her first week of "math meeting helper" duties! Sometimes it takes a lot of courage and composure to get in front of an entire classroom full of students and share yourself or run a meeting! Well done second graders! You all have ways of surprising us by rising to the occasion, whether you're leaders or listeners! Well done!!
Next week will be a short one for students, as they will have Thursday and Friday off from school. I've actually assigned a "regular" homework packet and am hoping your students will continue reading (15 minutes, or more!!) and practicing their math facts throughout the week. So... next week students should keep their homework packet, and bring to school on Monday! Enjoy your short week and long weekend friends!
