Hello wonderful families!!
I am reaching out for some donations that are needed for our classroom! We use whiteboard dry erase markers daily- either the thick or thin markers, in any color would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for items for our school store (next time we shop is this Friday). These are packs of small items from either the Target birthday bins, dollar store, etc- small trinkets, pencils, pens, temp. tattoos, etc.
If you’re able to donate any of these items this week or next that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
Today we learned two strategies for how to solve two digit subtraction equations. This is a crucial skill in second grade and also something that simply takes practice to develop. The children were amazing today and worked so hard! Here is an explanation of the methods that we will be using (you may want to keep handy for upcoming homework :)).
Variety of common materials to create a container that may include:
- Cloth such as old jeans, shirts, jackets, and socks
- Plastic such as bubble wrap, plastic wrap, and sandwich bags
- Foam such as packing peanuts or disposable coffee cups
- Metal such as aluminum foil
- Other items such as pipe cleaners, paper, or cardboard
I hope everyone has enjoyed a wonderful break. I am missing my second graders and can’t wait to see everyone Monday and be back to a routine!
Here is to a great 2018 ahead together!!!
The annual candy cane sale has returned. Our fifth-grade classes will sell candy canes to help raise money for their end of year activities. This year the sale runs from Monday, December 4 through Friday, December 15. The cost for each candy cane is $1.00 and they will be delivered the same day they are ordered. Thank you for your support and happy holidays
Here is our latest parent letter for math. We are using several different strategies to solve two digit addition. These methods of adding numbers together may be different from how you and I learned. To learn more about Show All Totals, New Groups Below and New Groups Above, please take a few moments to look over the letter below. 🙂
Amazing work on all the character pumpkins that made their way in! We had so much fun sharing them and touring our other friend’s pumpkins in Second Grade today!!! Everyone is so creative! Thanks for your help in this project! They will line our windowsill until Halloween!
