Quarter 2 Week 9

This week:

Case 21 testing Reading & Math. Make sure your child has a great breakfast and gets to bed early.

Friday: We will be wearing our adorable pajamas, drinking hot chocolate as we watch the Polar Express. A paper asking if you would like your child to opt-out will be sent home this week. 

If you would feel inclined to help me purchase the ingredients for the crock pot hot chocolate, here is the recipe:

1 can 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
6 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips (depends on your liking…dark, white or milk chocolate. Any kind works!)
2 bags of marshmellows

Look who discovered frost!

On Friday, we went on a text feature scavenger hunt!

What's going on in 2403?

We are going to have a hot chocolate, pajama and movie party on the last day of the quarter. However, they need to earn it first. They earn it by writing act of kindness forms about their classmates. We're almost there!

Spencer Kate decided to write a novel during Reader's Workshop. 

A little fun during indoor recess. 

During Reader's Workshop Jared wrote in his Reading Response Journal questions about weather!
Above: We are trying to come up with a classroom motto. I asked them to describe our class. These are the adjectives they came up with!

Photos from the year September-November

The first quater my Ipad was not connecting and sending pictures to my blog. I started taking them with my phone which was more of a challenge. Today, I figured it out how to send photos to blogger via Ipad--and it finally worked! This means you will be able to see more photos of your children at work! Yay! Below are a various photos from the year. I will start taking photos that will have more understanding and connection to what your child is doing in class. We are learning about weather at the moment, and the last few photos are your children playing with their parachutes! I believe one child told me that this was her favorite day in 2nd grade! Gotta love science!
