What’s New in One and Two?
Week of May 20 – 24, 2013
*Reminders – NO SCHOOL on Monday, May 20
- PIP Meeting on Thursday, May 23 at 7:00
- Evening of the Arts on Wednesday, May 29
Hopefully, you and your child had time over the long weekend to do some bird watching. Please send in the bird tally sheet to school so we can total the number of birds that we saw. Even if you did not add any new tally marks to the list, please return it to school because we can count the birds that we saw as a class on Thursday. Thanks.
NO MORE HOMEWORK
I will not be sending home anymore homework packages for the remainder of the year. Spring Fever has arrived and I know that families are busy with after school and weekend activities. There will not be any more spelling tests either. Please DO keep up with home-reading and grade twos should continue practicing their addition facts.
BUTTERFLY SCIENCE UNIT
Our Flat Stanleys have started to arrive back at school! We will be talking about where they visited as they come in, and find those places on our map. We have also finished most of our Canada unit and will now be starting a mini-unit about butterflies. As we take a look at butterflies, we will be making our own Butterfly ABC Book. We have some baby caterpillars arriving at the end of the month. As we watch them develop, we will be keeping a journal and recording our observations.
