Updates for May 14, 2012

WOOHOOO……  This week is going to be full of adventures.  Please note these events:


*  SECOND GRADE JUST WRITE CELEBRATION:  Thursday May 17 12:45 – 1:30.  Parents are invited to share in this celebration with their children.  We would love to have a special guest for each one of our second graders.  Please let me know if your child will NOT have a special guest coming.

*  We will be having a student teacher from Hope/Liverpool University in England as a guest in our classroom this coming week.   This is a great opportunity for children to learn about education in other countries as well as appreciate differences in communities.

*  We will begin typing classes daily starting this week……. YEAH!!!!!


Writing:  This week we will be doing our end of the year writing assessments.  I am so proud of our little writers!!!!!!


Daily 5:  I continue to be amazed at the progress each one of the students has made in the area of reading….  little pumpkins!!!!   We are continuing to apply our comprehension strategies to various text and reviewing decoding strategies.


Word Study:  Ready for some sad news?  This week is our last week of new spelling words 🙂  I know, dry your tears.

Our words are:  last,  never,  us,  left,   end


Math:   Here is our new buzz word… MULTIPLICATION!  The kids are very excited about this new venture.  Our goal in second grade is to expose the children to multiplication in concrete ways included count bys, groups and arrays.   We will also be talking about fractions towards the end of the week.


Have a great week!!!!!

Mrs. Kuieck 🙂
