It feels like the days are slipping by faster and faster, as we treasure up our last few days together as a second grade family . The past few days we have been incredibly busy in the classroom and we continue our learning in all areas:
WRITING: Our writers are revisiting narrative, small moment writing and it is truly amazing to see the growth they have made. We have learned strategies to turn our second grade writing into third grade writing ( they think this is “so cool”). Writers use a hooking lead, detailed emotions and a memorable ending that may include a lesson. We will be having our last narrative writing assessment in the next few days. Look for a writing memory book to come home next week :).
READING: What an amazing group of readers!!!! We have been learning all about Hudsonville History through a non-fiction text and journaling about our learnings and/or interesting facts. We have also learned that teaching one another our learnings can increase our comprehension of text… YEAH READERS!
MATH: Our mathematicians continue to strengthen their skills through never ending math games ( so much fun today!) and small group teachings. We will be taking an end of the year assessment on Friday. Give your child a great big hug for working so hard on their addition and subtraction facts…. they all did a FABULOUS JOB THIS YEAR!!!!!
SCIENCE: We have wrapped up our unit on plants and are currently reviewing the water cycle and the importance of water. Today we created a water cycle chart and continue to observe our own classroom water cycle in a jar.
Your children are SUCH a blessing to me…. LOVE THEM DEARLY!
