Weekly Wrap Up

Spring is in the air! We finally made it outside for recess on Thursday and Friday. With the weird weather we are sure to have in March in Ohio, just a few recess reminders.
  • The temperature needs to be 60 for children to not wear a coat at recess. 
  • If the windchill is above 20 we do go outside. Students need hats and gloves as well as a coat that zips.
  • If there is snow on the ground, students need to have snow boots to be allowed off the blacktop. 
On Monday, we celebrated Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss. We made hats to look like the cat in the hat.

Mr. Eaglowski, our superintendent, came to read to our class and second grade! We are so thankful he could come read Green Eggs and Ham to us.

We stayed with second grade a little longer and did some buddy reading.

We have also been going to 4th grade on Fridays to do buddy reading and play some games with our sight words.

In Math this week, we worked on using position words to describe. They did a tremendous job on this! You will find a quiz grade and a test grade on the parent portal. I will send those tests home early next week. We are going to start working on sort into categories next week. Keep working on those flash cards every night! They are getting more confident and more comfortable with their math facts.

In Social Studies, we learned about community helpers. We studied teachers, doctors, and police officers. We also did a group research project on firefighters. We read nonfiction books and answered 5 questions about firefighters. We used the computer to publish this paragraph, and then illustrated it. They are hanging in our hallway and will come home eventually.
Next week, we will be learning about goods and services.

In Reading, we are continuing to work on reading independently and understanding what we read. We are also working on spelling simple words. We learned how to write narratives last week, so we are working on writing stories with characters and action. Our reading and writing has come such a long way since August!
