Weekly Newsletter for 10/12/18

Dear 2nd Grade Families,

I will be out of town this Thursday and Friday. Please address any immediate concerns to the office or to Ms. Li. I will return your non-urgent messages on Monday when I am back in the classroom.

This week in English Language Arts/Writing…

We are working on retelling and summarizing a story. We learned the difference between a comprehensive retelling of the story versus summarizing the most important information of a fiction text using “Somebody, wanted, but, so, then” structure to guide our summary. Students are practicing it during their independent reading time and sharing out with the class.

This week in Math…
