I hope this update finds you enjoying some sunshine, finally! The students enjoyed being outside this week as we had the crazy mix of weather around here.
If you are looking for something to do tonight, Wiley Elementary (our Pen Pals school) is hosting their school carnival. It is all held indoors at Utica High School. There will be games, a bounce house, food, prizes, raffles, and a photo booth. I'm letting you know about this event, because my daughter is in sixth grade and we will be there. It's always fun to see each other outside of school and to help a worthy cause!
We are working with vocabulary for geometry. Next week, will make some shapes to help those words become more realistic for the children. Data and graphing will continue as well. We have fractions and introducing multiplication left to do in second grade. If ever you are wondering what to do with your child, practice larger numbers with regrouping addition and subtraction. You can also practice fractions, repeated addition (skip counting facts), telling time, and using money.
The first week of write and tell, phase three went well. Most of the children even wrote two paragraphs! Way to go!!!!
They are loving cursive! We started with some lowercase letters this week that all follow a ROCK and ROUND style. More letters to come next week.
