This week we are working on a lot of new things and still some assessments.
Students will be taking the STAR test to determine their AR level. This will help students pick a book that is "just right" for them. They will also begin testing on these books soon and earning gold stars!!!
In math we are discussing measurement with weights because as we dive into the year it is something that is used throughout the curriculum. We are also reviewing some second grade standards to set our foundation for the year.
Social studies has begun with a bang! We are discovering the attributes of our world by learning the basic map skills before we dive into Greece and the foundations of our government system.
Tomorrow, it is Steve B's night for our Sander's family at the location on Barrett Parkway and Dallas Highway. The class with the greatest turnout will receive a pizza party (if I read my e-mail correctly)!
