Take a deep breath and exhale! That's what I am telling my students. The little ones have been working sooooo hard and learning tons of new routines all while doing this with the 212 spirit. As a result, we are using next week as a review week in ELA. There will be no spelling/dictation, vocab, or FCAT weekly test. Instead, we will spend the time reviewing cause/effect, subject/predicate, and main idea.
Our FCAT weekly test this week was done with partners. This is to help students develop the skills without the pressure of a grade.
We have begun grade 3 math. Math books are going home. Please help your child to tear out his homework assignment each night and place his/her math book back in his/her backpack to be used in class the next day. This will help students to be able to reference the day's lesson as well as have everything in one place to review for tests.
On Wednesday, October 1, grades 2-3 will have their annual fall parade. Second graders are to use storybook characters as their theme. Each child is to wear a costume to school that day of one of their favorite characters. Use your imagination! Everyone is invited. Look for more info in future news.
Also, our fall party will be immediately after the parade. We would love to have everyone join us. More details on this will also be coming soon.
