READING Image result for books clip art

We have had a great week celebrating Presidents and reading about historical events.  The students continue to progress through their literature learning.  We are still reading Holes.  This book has a lot of details and new vocabulary to review.  The students are enjoying the book and piecing together the mystery along the way.  AR record sheets will be checked Tuesday, March 10 for their total of 10 points to earn their total points for the quarter for the AR movie day.  All quarter 3 book reports are due on March 10th, as we will need additional time to present the book reports before the quarter.  Please be sure to send in your child’s report by March 10th.  We will present on Wednesday for those not able to present on Thursday, and after the Spanish Pointe field trip, once we return.  Ruby Lavender is our next   literature book, and this will begin in quarter 4.

We are working on the unit 7 with fractions.  The test will be next Thursday, March 5th, and an online practice on Go Math will be posted today and can really help with practice for these skills! We will move into our Volume II book, with Chapter 8 next week.


 Science/S.S.  Image result for science  clip art       

We are beginning our study of Plants and Animals.  We will explore plants through seeds and growth of flowers.  Our animal portion will be researching an animal of choice.  The test for this topic will be posted in next week’s Tucak Times, as we work through the unit.

               Immigration Day! Image result for immigration clip art

Thursday, April 9th, we are planning our big day with visiting a simulation of Ellis Island with the entire grade 2 classes! I will need 5 volunteers to help in my classroom on this morning from 9:00 AM to 11:45 AM.  I would like to set up a meeting ahead or time, so we can plan for our big day!  Our room is designated as the Medical Station.  The children will dress up as an immigrant from their country.  The children chose a country that they preferred, and it listed on the paperwork with the parent letter.  Students will need a costume from their country, items to put in their “suitcase” (pillow cases will be provided), and they will also receive passports in class for their day of immigration to Pine View America!  We hope to have a great adventure and the students seem very excited about this project!
