Please remember that if you are able to send your child to school tomorrow with 100 pennies to help celebrate our 100th day of school and to support the charity, Pennies for Peace! As a class we will be depositing our pennies into a school jar during the day so it would be great if we can have full participation as a class.
Also, in the past students have had the option to dress up as if they are 100 years old to celebrate the day! This is by no means a requirement but if you are feeling creative your student is more than welcome to participate :).
Let me know if you have any questions!
Two udates for you are below. Please read carefully as this effects our classroom in the next couple of months!
1) Your child (should have) brought home a permission slip today regarding a ‘pen pal’ opportunity we have with the classroom I taught in last year. It is a 3/4 combined class in Denver, Colorado. We are working on Friendly Letters and this is an applicable and relevant way to show off your child’s skills! These need to be returned by Monday at latest or else your child will not be able to be assigned a pen pal.
There is a section to ‘check’ all that you are comfortable with. If you are okay with a pen pal but are not okay with any specific aspect please check this section carefully and I will be sure to implement your decision in your students writing. No personal addresses will be given, rather just general information. If you do not want your child to participate they will still be required to write letters each cycle but these will not be sent to the other school. This is a second grade standard and what better way to practice than in real life!
2) Math test grades have been entered into IC. This test seemed a bit tricky for some friends as it is a bit of an abstract concept connecting a physical manipulative of the base ten blocks to a pencil and paper test. As always, corrections made by next Wednesday (Feb 1) will receive half credit. I will send those home tomorrow with the math homework so please look through it with your child. Some students simply did not answer questions.
A newsletter will be sent home tomorrow regarding our week, in the mean time please reach out if you have any questions!
Please see the link below to sign your student up for the science fair if you plan on them participating.
I have attached the flyer regarding the homeless drive that was sent home on Friday, in case it didn’t make it all the way home 🙂 Second grade has been doing really well already and it would be great to have some more donations brought in if you are able to do so.
Let me know if you have any questions!
If you have been in IC this afternoon you will see that the grades for the student’s opinion pieces have been added. These were done on a rubric that I will send home this afternoon so you can see what the students were focusing on in this writing piece.
I am going to post their pieces in the classroom as they did a wonderful job and made some beautiful illustrations. You will be receiving a photo copy to see the work but it unfortunately will only be in black and white for now.
Hi all, please see the email below from one of our third grade teachers.

This week in math we worked on taking whole numbers and splitting them into smaller parts. This involved a lot of use with unifix cubes so that we had a tactile experience learning about this. Students worked on making stacks of ten and counting the leftovers and then would ‘dissolve’ another stack of ten, seeing if the overall number would change.
Next week we will continue with this exploration and incorporate some more math games.
In writing this week we worked on a second opinion piece. Students chose between writing about the best thing they did over break or the best present they received over break. Since we worked on opinion writing back in November we thought it would be a nice entryway back into the year to review this topic. Students learned about how I grade using a rubric so that they can write the best, most effective piece possible. We will finalize these pieces next week and do a little ‘Author’s Chair’ so they can hear one another’s work.
We will be switching science units next week so we finished off our topic of the Solar System this week. We learned more about constellations, the planets orbits and the movement of the stars in our galaxy. The students really seemed to enjoy this unit!
After next week I will be tracking the last three math homework’s to see who is eligible for my homework lunch! Your student needed to have successfully completed the past 3 math assignments, and have had their name on the top as well. Please remember that math homework is handed out on Fridays and is due the next Friday. We will grab lunch from the cafeteria and find somewhere fun to eat as a treat for their hard work!
I hope everyone had a great first week back and is ready to tackle the second half of the year! I have already noticed that the kiddos seem more mature, and just look more grown up! They impress me every day with their wit, their intensity to learn and their compassion for one another. Thank you for being so supportive of their learning journey.
