Thankfully the weather took pity on us today and cooled down a bit. It was much more tolerable in our classroom! However, water bottles are still high encouraged. I give cups to any student who does not have one so they can remain hydrated.
While were busy surviving the heat we somehow found time to play several get to know you games, make rocket ship goals, talk about how our words matter during the book Chrysanthemum and discuss what second grade expectations will be this year. We also got to explore a new classroom library, earned a golden whistle in gym, and visited music and art. We fit a lot into the first week and boy did it go by fast!
Next week is another four day week. Tuesday is Primary Voting Day, so we will not have school.
We will also be starting our Math and Reading lessons on Monday. Be on the lookout for a homework sheet to do with your student. It will give some tips about setting up a successful homework spot at home. We will also go over what will be in their homework binder, so if your student has not sent one in yet, next week they will need it. I do have extras for anyone who needs them!
Thanks for such a wonderful first week of school! Enjoy the weekend!
