Ms. Otte also joined in and was "Cooper" for our game. Mark took over for her.
Mrs. Whitten invited our class representatives to share our goals.
At the conclusion of the goal meeting, Mrs. Whitten also kicked off our first Zeh Enrichment program featuring Joel Warren. He was upbeat and inspirational and encouraged all students to adopt an "I Can Do It" attitude. Check out his link for more information.
This week we also started using our Weekly Reader. We learned all about animal migration. Did you know that some animals walk, fly, or swim to migrate? The students worked on comprehension questions with mystery partners. It was a great way to work with new friends!
Last Friday, the whole second grade gathered in Mrs. Dallaire's room and we watched "Frog & Toad" to launch our new reading/science unit. We will be using the stories to develop phonics and reading comprehension skills. In science, we will be learning all about the lifecycle of the frog. Our new tadpole should be arriving this week! Pleas start thinking of some name suggestions for our new pet!
Another familiar face this week was Judy Moody. We read the first book in the series and laughed our way through Judy's misadventures. Ask your child to tell you about the T.P. Club or Judy's hand trick that she played on her brother, Stink.
Well, I think that is it for now. I am looking forward to another great week with the students of Room 13. I am also looking forward to meeting you on Tuesday from 7:50-8:10 (in the classroom) and then, Mrs. Whitten will meet with you from 8:10-8:30 (in the cafeteria). I believe there is a primary election happening at Zeh that day as well. Parking may be tricky, so you may want to park in the church lot next door. Have a great week!
