Homework Happenings

We have eight more days of school until our holiday vacation. (Yes, we are counting down in our classroom.) Today our brain breaks consisted of drawing silly elves and a quick write of our Santa list! We are keeping on our learning track, but slowly heading into “holiday mode”. I will officially be off of our normal routine next week- with holiday crafts and activities!

Reading: Tonight I asked students to select a favorite story from Storytown to read as a “cold read”. Your kiddo can choose few selections to practice reading fluency.

Spelling: Please review the spelling list at home! Our test is Friday. Your child has a vocabulary page with words and definitions. We made up body motions for each word, Please ask your child to share them with you. This is a great body to our brain connection. Vocabulary will be TESTED starting in January.

Math: NO HOMEWORK.

Homework Happenings Tonight!

Good Afternoon! Tonight is the holiday concert at Martic! The second grade will be performing four songs. If your family plans to attend, please bring your child to Mrs. Bushong’s classroom at 5:50 ish. We will stay in the classroom until we perform just after the band performance. You are able to take your child home after he/she sings OR they will be supervised in the front of the cafeteria watching the chorus perform until the end of the performance! It will be a fun night to watch your kiddo sing! Kerry

Families have a lot of holiday cheer going on and I like to keep our workload on the lighter side!

Math: We do have TWO lessons of homework tonight! Lesson 3 and 4 in chapter 6. We are working on adding three digit numbers with and without regrouping! 🙂 Please take a look at this work! Our thinking is really coming together!
