Time is moving quickly now that we are in the last quarter of the year. This week we enjoyed the warm spring weather with some extra recess time. Our biggest highlight of the week came on Tuesday when we received our new reading rug. It features a map of Canada and the students enjoy finding specific geographic locations during story time. Below is a picture of our new reading rug. On Thursday, we had some special visitors who presented some Dr. Seuss style skits. The students enjoyed a few giggles as the seventh grade students shared their wacky rhymes with us.
Next week will be another five day week. This week’s show and tell theme is your pet. Please have your child bring a photo or drawing of their pet. For those that do not have a pet, please have your child bring a photo/drawing of the pet he would choose given an opportunity. Each child should be prepared to tell several sentences about their pet. Please read the April 23-27 schedule for specific details pertaining to our class.
New this week: In preparation for third grade, on a regular basis, the second grade students will be having reading comprehension quizzes periodically over their homework assignments. Please take an extra couple of minutes to review the story with your child after he/she reads it to you.
