Parent Conferences:

Please sign up on this link if you haven’t already done so! Your child is working hard and preparing his/her work to share with you.  He/She will lead the majority of this conference.   I will join about 20 minutes in… I try to wait until your child has gotten through most of the conference folder.  Your child has worked hard to prepare the self-reflections and work arranged at his or her table.  As time gets closer will be practicing presenting our work for you!  Please let the office know if you need help logging on to the PASS system or scheduling your conference.

Reading: We are beginning to dig deep into the 2nd grade reading standard that practices reading two versions of the same story and comparing and contrasting them.  For example there are many different “Cinderella” and “The 3 Little Pigs” books, which we may use.  Next week’s reading log will focus on this, so look for those kinds of books or let me know if you need to borrow a copy of something!

Early Release: Wednesday, 3/18.  School will be dismissed at 12:10.  Conferences will follow in the afternoon.

No School: Thursday and Friday the week of 3/19-20 due to conferences.

Spring Break: Wow!  I can’t believe it’s almost spring break!  No School the week of 3/23.  Back to school on March 30th

Field Trip and Bridges: We had a great field trip last week touring the different types of bridges in Portland.  We will continue our learning around bridges, engineering, and investigate how they solve a problem.  Our goal is to build our own bridge at the end of the unit out of popsicle sticks.  I will let you know when we’ll need parent volunteers for that project!

Have a great week!
