Dear Second Grade Families,
 
Literacy
We will continue our unit of friendly letter writing.  Be sure to ask your students the 5 parts of a friendly letter and have them sing the friendly letter chant to you.
 
Science
We have been simply amazed by the effort the kids are putting into their habitat dioramas. Thank you so much for allowing them to raid your household of any usable items. It is so fun to watch them work together to create them. We will be wrapping this up next week and presentations of the habitats to their classmates will be Thursday (if all goes as planned J). Thank you again for your support from home with this!
 
History
We will begin our unit on U.S. Signs and Symbols.  We are going to be traveling tourists visiting many states to learn about several Signs and Symbols that have shaped America.
 
Valentine's Day
Thank you to all of you that showered us with sweet valentines.
Thank you to the room moms for making our parties such a huge success.  Be sure to ask your child about the cool cards we made for a young child that will not have the chance to attend school and receive valentines himself.  We sure made his Valentine’s Day so special this year.
 

Sincerely,

Miss Singleton, Mrs. Brubaker, Miss Kyster, and Ms. Fisher

Dear Second Grade Families,

 

Literacy
We will begin to work on the parts of a friendly letter and writing a friendly letter next week.
 
Science
We will begin breaking into groups next week to start our fun Habitat project.  Be on the lookout for an email next week with more details.

 

History

We will finish our unit on the War of 1812 next week and begin our unit on Signs and Symbols.  Be sure to ask your child the nickname for the U.S.S. Constitution and how it got that name.

 

Valentine’s Day

We will be holding our parties on Wednesday, February 14 at 2:30pm.

Please send in 25 unaddressed Valentine’s (please do not fill in the TO line, only sign the FROM line).  It is much easier for the students to pass out the Valentine’s when they are NOT addressed to students specifically. Valentine’s must NOT include any food items, per our American Academy policy.  If you send in food items, your child will not be permitted to pass out Valentine’s.

 

Sincerely,

Miss Singleton, Mrs. Brubaker, Ms. Kyster, and Ms. Fisher
