We are enjoying our last few weeks of second grade.  Thank you so much for sending in goodies for our Garden Party!  The salad was delicious and it was great to see  students enjoying such a healthy snack.    
Curriculum News-
Unit of Inquiry- We are continuing to work on our summative assessments for our Math or Chaos unit.  Students are enjoying this creative technology project.  Look for the completed assessments on your child's blog at the end of this week.    
Math- We are continuing to practice strategies for adding and subtracting large numbers and we are finishing up our last unit on measurement.  
Writing Workshop-Students rolled the dice, came up with 3 numbers and incorporated these numbers into creative stories.  We will be publishing our stories this week.  
Word Study- Focus on high frequency words.  Students will practice words at school and have a final assessment the last week.   
Reading- I am so proud of the progress the students have made as readers.    Their fluency and comprehension skills have greatly improved.  Please continue to have your child read during the summer, studies show that students who continue reading during summer time continue to grow in reading skills while students that take the summer off lose some of the gains they have made during the school year and must spend time catching up in the fall.   A brochure with book suggestions will be sent home soon.  
 Homework for the rest of the school year is to read and log minutes on The Reading Challenge worksheet.  We will see who can read the most minutes and  how many minutes we can accumulate as a class.  Please initial one of the books on your child's Reading Challenge worksheet for every 20 minutes they read.  
Students also need to continue to study their math facts 15 minutes a day.   
Students who have unfinished school work will bring their work home to complete as homework.  
Enjoy the last few weeks of the school year!  
No school next Monday.  
Enjoy the 3 day weekend!
