We had a very busy week. Here is what we have been working on:
MATH – This week we wrapped up unit 2 in math with our assessment. Tests with scores will be coming home today. If kids got problems wrong, they spent time today fixing their mistakes. Next week we start Geometry – Unit 3.
WRITING / SOCIAL STUDIES – We have been working on reading and writing about Hudsonville History. Today the kids will come home with an assignment to complete this weekend. This homework will help us write our last section of our booklet.
READING – We are currently in the middle of Unit 3 – Reading Nonfiction. We have been learning about the different text features that we see in nonfiction books. We are also practicing different reading strategies to help us remember what we are learning about in the book!

FOR YOUR INFORMATION
1.This month our kindness challenge is school wide. We are participating in Grinchmas. We want to grow our heart 3 times. Kids are encouraged to do good deed for people at home and in school. If they do a good deed, they get to write it on a heart and hang it on the bulliten board. If your 2nd grader does a good deed at home, shoot me an email and I can write it down. I am also looking for good deeds in the classroom and school.
2. Social studies homework came home today. Please help your 2nd grader complete it this weekend and return it to school on Monday, Dec. 11. This homework is needed to help your 2nd grader complete their nonfiction writing booklet.
3. Gift Exchange…..2nd graders will be participating in a gift exchange in the classroom on Dec. 22. Please send a $5.00 gift to school by Wed., Dec. 20. Girls need to bring a girl gift and boys need to bring a boy gift.
4. WINTER HAS ARRIVED……Please make sure that your 2nd graders comes to school with winter gear labeled with their names. Due to time constraints at the end of the day, the 2nd graders will be not be required to wear their snowpants home. My rule for recess is: If your gear is here….you put it on!! PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR CHILD HAS SHOES PACKED IN THEIR BACKPACKS OR HAVE GYM SHOES HERE THEY CAN WEAR!!!!
