Dear 2B Parents,
It has been a fun-filled fall week in 2B! We had a blast yesterday afternoon creating our STEM Haunted houses for our ghosts based off our read aloud story “Ten Timid Ghosts.” The students worked in pairs to create a haunted house out of toothpicks, candy corn, and candy corn pumpkins. The students, then, filled out a chart on how the activity went. While it may look like just fun, there were a lot of challenges the students experienced. I was hugely impressed at the ingenuity of the students in figuring out how to utilize the broken pieces in their buildings. Please see the attached pictures from our activity!
Thank you to those of you who joined us on our field trip! We had a wonderful time at Carleton Farms on Tuesday, I have also attached a photo from our field trip to this email. Thank you also to everyone who attended Math Night last night, it was fun to see the students teaching our classroom math games to parents and siblings alike!
Homework and Spelling:
In the upcoming week, we will be focusing on “sh” and “th” digraphs in spelling. On Wednesday, we will be learning about magnets in science. You will be receiving a note requesting that you send a refrigerator magnet with your child next week for our lesson. If you do not have one, I have some extras! The homework packet is due on October 25th.
Your student will be bringing home their Fall Report today! I will make sure to show a sample of a previous project in class. If you have any questions, or would like to see a sample, feel free to stop by! The product is to be student-made, but please assist your student as needed in collecting the materials needed for putting the project together. The Fall Report is due November 15th.
The Halloween Carnival is next Friday from 6:00-9:00 p.m. Just as a reminder, next Friday is also a half day. 😊
I hope you have a restful weekend!
