weeks #23 & 24 February 14, 2019
Last week was a full week and a shorther week this week! I guess we will take what we can get! All in all these past two weeks have been extremely busy in grade 2! We have spent our time wrapping up ou latest opinion writng pieces and unit 5 math assessments! Yeah! In addition to wrapping up assessments we also learned some new Reader’s Workshop strategies these past few weeks too! Ask your child to model one of their favorite strategies!
WANTED! We have chair arm pillows for students to use on the floor. We are in need of 4 more for everyone to have one to use. If you can help us that would be wonderful! We also need baby wipes too!
Thank you to all those who have sent in gifts and supplies! We greatly appreciate all you do!
Congrats to our January Student of the Month kiddos: Joshua and Tanner! Way to go!
Homework over vacation is OPTIONAL!
Heart Healthy Day is Friday, February 15th! Please remember all your winter gear! All students will be outside for about 1-1 1/2 hours!
Winter is here! All students go outside every day UNLESS the temperature is below 16 degrees or it is raining. PLEASE remind you child to bring their gear even if it looks like foul weather. You never know what the weather will be like in Maine! It can be raining one minute and sunny the next! Students MUST have boots and snowpants to play in the snow. This is a P.C.S. rule. Students should also have a winter jacket, hat, scarf and mittens. Some recess days are very chilly but still warm enough for recess! We want all children to be warm and safe during the chilly winter months. If your child has extra snowpants, boots or sneakers to keep at school they may. They may store their gear in their cubbies. SNEAKERS are a must for gym class on Wednesdays! Also, students should have a pair of sneakers/shoes to wear in the classroom so their feet don’t overheat.
Homework packets are sent home on the first day of the school week and are due back the following first day of the week. If there is a holiday, workshop day or snow day homework is scheduled that week. Homework during vacations only will be optional!
Please check your child’s Weekly Tote (white folder with the blue paw print) for weekly papers. Please remove the papers and return the tote to school. This week your child tote should have the following news from the classroom: weeks #22 & 23 newsletter
We have a snack break every morning upon arrival. Please make sure your child has a healthy snack and drink.
Cooler weather is approaching and your child will need to dress appropriately. Please send layers of clothing with your child so they can adjust, as the days get cooler or warmer.
Students have gym class on Wednesday. Please send sneakers and appropriate dress.
Toys and electronics are not permitted in my class unless they remain in the students’ school bag. It is the responsibility of the student if a toy/electronic is lost or damaged.
Each week a different student will bring home a plastic portfolio box labeled “Mrs. Daig’s Star Student”. It will be sent home on Fridays and returned on Mondays. Your child may fill the portfolio box with items that pertain to him/her. Students are asked to bring items/pictures of items to school that are meaningful like a postcard of their summer trip to Hawaii, a piece of rose quartz from a quarry they once visited, or a favorite doll that someone crocheted. Items will be shared throughout the week and returned home on Friday.
Again, I look forward to working with you and your child. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
