Happy Tuesday second grade families! I hope everyone had a wonderful 3 day weekend! I was so surprised when I realized that this was week 10 of distance learning. I am in amazement at how flexible and resilient the students have been and I thank you for your continued support week after week!
We will continue with our GLAD unit on birds this week. The bird we will be focusing on is the Pelican! The expert group is assigned on Seesaw and I also attached it to my email on Friday. I have also assigned students a few books on Epic! about Pelicans if you are using that app at home. There is also a “Math Interview” and a year end reflection “T-shirt Design” activity on Seesaw. Please complete what you can.
The students and I chatted about Opinion Writing during our Zoom meetings last week and I was pleasantly surprised at how great they were at convincing their readers! I have assigned an Opinion Writing assignment on Seesaw that connects with our read aloud, “Charlotte’s Web”. I also uploaded a video on my YouTube channel about using “Oreos” to help with Opinion Writing.
If you could please take the time to send me your checklist from week 9 (5/18-5/22) that would be great! Not everything on the checklist needs to be marked when you return it back to me. I will need this paper returned for assessment and accountability. My office hours are Tuesday/Thursday mornings from 10-11 AM. If you would like to set up a 15 minute meeting, please send me which day and what time works best for you.
I hope you all have a blessed week!
