January!

Happy New Year!

As we make our way back into the routines of school we are spending time this week and next wrapping up our Non-Fiction Units in Reading and Writing! Next week we will be creating a "museum" in-class, giving all students opportunities to share about one non-fiction topic that interests them; it's their turn to be the teacher! We will be inviting the other 2nd grade classes to come learn at our museum! 

In math we are finishing Module 5 with our assessment next week. We will quickly be moving into Module 6, Foundations of Multiplication and Divison. 

Our Field Trip next Monday, January 14th to the Apple Store is quickly approaching! Please assure that your child is on-time Monday morning, we will be leaving right at 8:35! If your child still requires a booster seat under the current CA law please provide a booster seat for your child labeled with their name. If you have any questions about the trip let me know! 

Report card for Semester One will be coming home in Friday Folders January 18th. 

Nov. 30th

Here we are on the precipice of December! There is much excitement in the air! This first week back has flown by! With the introduction of non-fiction in reading and writing we all enjoyed the change of pace and they are deeply engaged in their work! We have one more day for students to finish their Module 4 assessment and then we are onto Module 5! They have been working hard on 3-digit addition and subtraction! Keep working on those math facts at home, it will help immensely!

Coming home today are permission slips for both our trip to the Apple Store in January and our trip to the Library in February. Please return both permission slips ASAP, filled out completely! If you can drive please fill out the bottom portion of the pink or yellow letter assuring that you are cleared through the Volunteer Management System! 

I know these two and a half weeks will fly by! 

Lindsey Wildlife Visit - Owls

We had a VERY busy day with SFMOMA coming to do an outstanding art lesson about Georgia O'Keeffe, art with Mrs Miller and Lindsey Wildlife came with the OWLS! We are wrapping up our units of study in reading and writing before Thanksgiving Break. When we return we will be doing Non-Fiction in both reading and writing! We will also continue Module 4 in Math though November. Keep working on those math facts at home, we are into 3-digit addition and subtraction!!

Happy November!

A BIG thank you to all of our room moms and parent volunteers that made our Halloween party a success yesterday! 

I know the kids had a very fun day! 

Next week we have an exciting addition to our schedule. Our class was chosen by the SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art) to have an art docent come to our classroom and teach a one hour art lesson! This will be happening next Friday, November 9th, the same day the owls are coming to visit from Lindsey Wildlife! It will be a busy but FUN day!

In addition next week we will have the Fun Run on Wednesday, we will be running with our buddies!

Mark your calendars: November 2nd, Staff Development Day, November 12th - No School, Veteran's Day and November 19-23 - No School, Thanksgiving Break. 

I hope you all have a relaxing 3-day weekend!

What a great week it was meeting with all of you and sharing the progress your children are making! Although we had short days we were able to begin our new reading unit: Studying Characters and our new Writing unit: Realistic Fiction! They are loving both and they tie together nicely! In math we are continuing on with Module 3. They will be taking their Module 3 assessment late next week. Keep working on those math facts at home, addition and subtraction to 20! 

This week we were also gifted 10 iPads for our classroom from our technology center here at Country Club. I am excited to start using these in the classroom for both language arts and math! 

For Halloween, Wednesday Oct. 31st our school parade will begin at approximately 9:45. Afterwards we will have snack/recess and our class party will be from 11:15-12:15 with dismissal at 12:25.
