May 6, 2019

Today we finished the last chapter in our reader "The War of 1812."  Things are really moving along fast!  We are working on the human body building blocks and nutrition in our domain.  Today's topic was our digestive system.  In math we are working on measurement using feet and inches.
Our second grade program is tomorrow, May 7 at 1:45 in the school gym.  A yellow paper was sent home with information.  Mrs. Hunt has asked that the students wear a solid, bright colored shirt (no words or graphics.  Girls, please don't wear a dress or skirt because we will be sitting on the gym floor.  Parents, if you plan on taking your student home after the program, please make sure their teacher knows.
A few students need to return school library books as soon as possible.  We have everyone's book in the bag returned!
See you tomorrow at the big program.

This is a busy time of year at school.  We will be having our reading test (Dibels) tomorrow morning. (Tuesday, April 30) We are scheduled right at 9:00 a.m.  We have completed our last spelling test and have moved on to chapter eight in math.  This is a fun chapter on measurement.  In our domain studies we are learning about the human body and five of the systems that keep our bodies functioning.  We made a small fold out book today showing these five systems.   Have your child show you the systems we are going to be studying.
Please remember that our grade level program is scheduled for next week, Tuesday, May 7 at 1:45 in the school gym.  This will be approximately 30 minutes.  We are hoping that you can schedule a late lunch and make it to our program.  The students will be allowed to go home with their parents after the program.
I can hardly believe that our school year is winding down.  We have had a great time together.  These children are ready and excited for third grade!

I hope you enjoyed a lovely spring break.  Things are really moving fast the next few weeks.  This week is our last spelling test.  The words are from our reader The War of 1812.  We are alphabetizing to the third letter of words.  Most children are really very good at this.  Yea for them!
We are finishing our chapter on money and time in math we will be taking the test on Thursday.
We are finishing up our study of the Civil War and will be taking an assessment on Wednesday.
The 4-H has brought in eggs for us to watch hatch.  This is always exciting for children.  We have talked about the life cycle of a chicken but actually watching makes it real. Our school librarian  has said that this is the last week students will be checking out books.  All library books will be due next week.  It would be great if we could get everyone's books turned in on time.  Please encourage your child to bring back all library books next week, May 3.
The second grade is planning a special musical program for parents on Tuesday, May 7 at 1:45 in the school gym.  We are hoping that those who work could take a late lunch.  The program will only last 30 minutes.  Please mark the date.
A permission slip was sent home today (Monday). We are going to the fire-station on Friday, April 26.  Because of time issues please have your child eat school lunch or bring a lunch from home.  We will be eating an early lunch that day.
We still are looking for parents who can come and help with our school field day on Tuesday, May 21.  If you are interested please let me know.
