Classroom News for Oct 5-9

homeworkHomework This is a short week for students, so there are only 2 nights for homework. As it is a short week we will not be having a spelling list. Instead we are sending home a Grade 2 sight word list that we will be using throughout the year. We have started working on the 6+1 Writing Traits and the first one is Ideas. Students have to use the main idea, stay on topic and write sentences with good details to go with it. Please make sure you are reading each night and record your book on the log sheet. There will be a small reward when you reach 25 books. Teachers have professional learning days on Thursday and Friday this week which means there is no school for the students.    We just finished up our Unit 1 in math on Friday. Please look at the test, sign it and return it back to school.We will now begin Unit 2 on numbers to 100. Students can be working on counting in different ways at home by; 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. In this unit we will also be working on odd and even numbers, counting with money, ordinals, showing numbers in different ways and place value.
