Puppy Class

What an exciting morning! We had two students from the high school's animal care class come and visit us with four puppies. The puppies are called bugs. They are a cross between a boxer and a pug. We learned that it is best to choose a puppy when they are at least five weeks old because you can tell what their personality will be like. However, they can't leave their mothers until they are eight weeks old. If anyone is interested in buying one you can contact the high school. Some of the kids were very interested and thought maybe they could ask you to just write a check.....girl puppy: $250.00
                                                             boy puppy: $200.00
                                                             carpet cleaning: $150
                                                             your child's face when you say yes: PRICELESS!

Valentine's Day

We had a very busy Valentine's Day.  We worked on our reading comprehension when we read a passage about Valentine's Day and took a quiz.  Then we did some writing with candy hearts.  The kids were clever and did a nice job. Here are few examples:

During the afternoon we collected data by sorting candy hearts by color and then used the data to create a graph. We even made some cool heart glasses!!

We all had a fantastic time at the party!  Thank you to our room moms for a great party!!!

Valentine's Day

Our room parents are busy working to plan our Valentine's Day party.  It will be held on February 14th at 1:45.  If  your child would like to bring valentines to share with their classmates they can bring them to school on Monday the 13th to be passed out.  Please make sure that they bring enough for each student in our class.  We have 26 students. 


Our 2nd trimester conferences are coming up quickly.  Your child received a letter with your date and time to meet with me.  Please sign and return the form as soon as possible to let me know if you are able to make the scheduled time.  During conferences we will discuss the progress your child is making in 2nd grade.  We will also look ahead and plan for the rest of the trimester.  I hope to see everyone!!
