I hope everyone had a relaxing and fun filled Spring Break!  It was fun to hear about everyone's vacation.  Check out your child's blog and read about the highlight of their vacation.    We are blogging buddies with 2 classes of 2nd graders.  Help your child check out the  comments on their posts from their buddies.  Please encourage your child to go to the Mystery Skype page at the top of this page and find their blogging buddy.  They can then read their buddies blog and post a comment back.  
We also were excited to receive postcards from our Washington D.C. Skype friends.  In this digital age many of the students stated that they prefer receiving a postcard to a blog comment...  Wouldn't it be nice if the art of letter writing continued?  We are going to continue our postcard exchange with Ms. Magana's class from D.C.  and with our Hilton Head Skype friends.   
We are busy, busy, busy with rehearsals for our Tide Pool Condos Play.  We hope to see everyone on Friday at 8:45 for the performance.  Picture opportunities and snacks for the cast immediately following the performance!  The dress rehearsal is set for Thursday afternoon.  Please make sure your child has his/her costume ready for the school dress rehearsal. 
UPCOMING FIELD TRIP TO THE TIDE POOLS IS SET FOR NEXT THURSDAY.  PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU ARE AVAILABLE TO CHAPERONE AND HAVEN'T TURNED IN THE SHEET.  THIS IS A FABULOUS FIELD TRIP!  
Curriculum Update-  Second Graders are "piloting" a spelling/word study program this last trimester. We are continuing to follow our school scope and sequence for spelling but are also incorporating the activities from this program. Students will take a pre-test on Monday, bring their words home to study during the week and have a final test on Friday.  Word lists will still be available on Spelling City.  This site is a great way for students to study their words.  Spelling City can be found on the "Websites on Sqworl " page on the top of this page.  Just 10-15 minutes 2 times a week will really boost your child's spelling skills and confidence.
