Weekly Newsletter 9/20/19

Dear 2B Families,

September is flying by!  In reading, we started reading groups and have been continuously adding to our CAFÉ menu.  We have also been discussing nouns and had a special lesson with Mrs. Latta on Wednesday (see the attached picture for our fun activity).  In math this week, we have been adding strategies to our addition practice and also working on problem solving.  Tomorrow, we will be meeting “Addition Addison” and “Subtraction Sullivan” to discuss key words that clue us in to whether the problem requires addition or subtraction (more, less, in all, etc.).  In science, we have been continuing to study the properties of matter.  We learned how to describe matter by its material, color, texture, and luster.

Boosterthon and Crazy Sock Day

Tomorrow is the school Boosterthon Fun Run!  Please have your child wear the white shirt they brought home in their backpack to school tomorrow 9/20.  We have almost reached $50 per lap as a class, which is amazing!  We reached our 2B class incentive of a Crazy Sock Day and are celebrating it tomorrow with our white jerseys.  Please remind your student to wear crazy socks with their shirts to school!  It’s bound to be an exciting day!

Apple Week

Next week, we will be celebrating Apple Week.  Our homework for the upcoming week includes an optional project your child may choose to complete, creating an “Apple Pig!”  Please have your child bring this in to share on Thursday, September 26th.  During this week, we will have a variety of in-class projects that have something to do with apples and on Thursday we will make applesauce for the birthday of “Johnny Appleseed.”  Please send one apple with your child by Wednesday, September 25th so that we can make our applesauce. 😊

Happy Apple Week!

Warm regards,

Addison Borseth
