Dear 2B Families,
I hope you have been able to stay warm, catch up on sleep and are ready to start off a new and short week. Hopefully your child has completed their President model this weekend. All models are due in class this Thursday, February 22. You are invited to join us for our Parade of Presidents on Friday morning before school. All our models and reports will be on display.
Last week we began to study estimating to the nearest ten. We will continue to do more practicing this week with daily homework as well. Please make sure to check over your child's work. We hope to take the chapter test on Friday.
Students will receive their spelling list tomorrow and we will also begin our next story in our Journeys series. This week, students will continue with daily homework. I have reminded students that they are expected to write in their daily reading logs and agenda. Please encourage your child to take time to make sure that all their homework is in their bag the night before to keep from items being forgotten at home. We are working hard to prepare for third grade. It will be here before we know it.
Thank you for all the donations for our Valentine's Day party last week. Our room parents, Mrs. Aldrete and Mrs. Flamino did a spectacular job making the day special for 2B.
I continue to be proud of the hard work my students are showing in their handwriting, effort and self-motivation. Please continue to encourage your child to do their best and to continue to push themselves to work beyond the minimum. This includes following one of our classroom rules of entering and exiting our classroom prepared. Students will lose a daily DOJO point for not having their agenda or reading log in class daily.
Hope to see you tomorrow at our school mass.
We are a nut free classroom. Please make sure to keep this in mind when packing snacks and lunches.
