Wow! It is hard to believe summer has flown by already, but here we are, back to school, and ready to begin a new year! We were busy this week learning our classroom routines and doing beginning of the year assessments.
We did take time for a little fun. On Friday, we had a mini Olympics, where we had a straw javelin throw, and tin foil shot put, a paper plate discuss throw, and a paper bag race. We were all winners as we had to work together as we voted for a team name, made a team banner, and worked together and cheered each other on during the competitions.
Next week, we will be getting back into the swing of daily five again. We, second graders, did an excellent job on our first try for the year during read to self. We just can't wait to get started.
Spelling tests will begin this next week. Check out the beginning of the year letter for the spelling routine. As always, call or email if you have any questions about second grade.
