We had a great day doing reading nonfiction texts and asking questions for research.  We reviewed our math skills before the test. Then we took our geometry test in the afternoon.  We made the counselors a cute vase with flowers.  They are watching us grow we felt it best to give them flowers of love messages. They loved them and I know they will enjoy reading the sweet notes your children made for them.   
We will have food, play games, and pass out valentines.  I want to report we will be taking a class donation for 5 dollars or more, due to peanut allergy.  We want to make sure the food is safe and peanut free.
Monday 100th day bag due.

Sorry I have not updated this week I am not on my game.  We had a quick easy relaxing day.  We are discussing area, and ask them the fun creative way we learned how to draw arrays in class.  We also had an exciting time starting our Native American Unit.  Ask them this week the different region and Native American people we are learning about.  We had a blast reading non-fiction books to discuss and write our research projects.  Make sure you discuss with them what topic they are researching. Take care and have a blast talking to your child about their learning.

There are some who may not be getting emails from me, this was what I sent out today.  I am looking forward to our Valentine's Party and I will be sending home a letter tomorrow.  If you could get it back by Friday it would be great? If not Monday will work too.  The children will be exchanging cards with the kids in the class. We will be eating food, playing a game, and making a craft at the party.  We are also doing a 100th day project which will also come home tomorrow, it is not due till Monday.  Monday is the 100th day of school. It will have directions and is easy for them to do.  This does not have to be your work, they just need to make sure they ask permission to use those items. I hope this email finds you well and know your little one is the light of my class. I enjoy your child everyday and they are growing up quickly in front of me.  I am amazed that the year is half way over.  Thinking about this makes me want to cry because I love each one for different reasons.  Also, without you parents my class would not be a success.   They are a blessing and I thank you for giving me the best gift, your child.

Jan. 27

Today was a busy day we are having blast learning to read nonfiction texts.  We are learning how to locate and use features to help guide our research.  We are then apply that knowledge to research our topic to write to our Big Idea.  Please ask them their Big Idea they are thinking of researching?  We are also starting to discuss how these features will help publish our All About Books.  We are continuing to practice subtraction in CAFE time, but today we moved on to classify 2D shapes and what attributes make up a polygon.  Please ask them what they discovered in math .  Tomorrow we finish up natural resources and will move on to understanding Bodies of water on our Earth.

Top Banana
Julie is our new Top Banana and we are learning that is loves collecting eggs at Easter and eating the candy.  She enjoys cuddling with her Grandpa and falling asleep in his arms.  She loved going to her father daughter dance she said, "I love spending time with my Dad.  It is my favorite thing to do."  She had a blast dancing and having fun with her dad.  We are looking forward to hearing more fun Julie.

Ms. Wolfean is back, and I hope you all had a fantastic MLK Day?

We had a great day , and we had a great time learning how summarize our story, during reading.  We reviewed how to ask our self and others questions while reading and after.  Then we revised our writing to begin publishing this week, so that we can move onto research.  Then math, this is a tough concept this week we are regrouping with two and three digit numbers and they are struggling.  Please give your child practice problems so they can remember to show the strategy.  I also taught them how to add to check subtraction, this also might need to explained.  They seem to not understand I can add my answer to the other part and check that I add to get the total given.  I hope you all have fun and let them teach you.  We are still working on natural resources in science and observing how objects go through changes and how those changes affect the outcome of what is made.

Today was a busy day and we were somewhat successful in completing all tasks.  We had library and we did spend extra time on math.  Therefore, I know that some of it is due to me.  We started a new concept in math subtracting with regrouping.  We are trying to get the second graders to explain when they need to regroup for both addition and subtracting.  They need to explain what is happening to the ones and tens, and use the math vocabulary in their response. Please ask them to explain both ways to regroup and make sure they explain using math words?  We are still studying Jan Brett and we have been writing about each book.  Today they did a quick check response to the stories we have heard, ask them to describe the stories and discuss the books with them.  we will be starting Natural resources in Science tomorrow.  Stay tuned for another update!

Marvelous Monday

My students will come home reporting that we were not in class today, they are correct.  The teachers in Second Grade thought it would be interesting to collect data on their reading tests.  We wanted one day to pull as many as we could read to us.  I was able to test and have half my class read to me.  It was nice, we are thinking of doing it again. Having said that, we of course did not have a normal day.  Therefore, we did not get to Spelling this week.  I will be doing a different kind of spelling.  I will test their sight words.  I know they will all do great, but there is not a list to come home because I want to compare their progress from the beginning of the year.  I thank you for your understanding, and please feel free to email me with questions.
