It is hard to believe that this is the last “Peek at the Week” of the 2017-18 school year. It has been our pleasure teaching Bexley’s very first group of second graders!

This week in Reading, we will focus on poetry. We will take a closer look at common elements in poetry as we study the poem “Heroes and Sheroes” from our Text Collection books. Students will finish the final copies of their poems for their poetry book. This unit’s task included writing six different types of poems about the people learned about throughout the unit. Students will share their poetry at our Task Celebration Poetry Café on Wednesday!

In Math, we will finish our work in Module 8 “Time, Shapes, and Fractions as Equal Parts of Shapes”. On Monday, we will review the module together. On Tuesday, students will take the End-of-Module 8 Assessment. Click on the “Resources page” link to see parent tips for Module 8. As always, we encourage students to go on Dreambox and zearn.org to reinforce second grade math standards.

We have a busy week planned! On Wednesday, we will have a picnic lunch and field day. Students may get a school lunch or bring a lunch from home for our picnic. They may also bring in a blanket or towel to sit on during our picnic. Students should bring a change of clothing to school on Wednesday, as they will get wet during Field Day. We will also be having our Task Celebration Poetry Café on Wednesday. Students will share their poems as they sip hot chocolate and snack on cookies and croissants! On Thursday, students will rotate between all six second grade classrooms for a fun learning experience. On Friday, our last day, students may bring in a game to play with their classmates. Please look for a note this week with field day and game day reminders.

Have a great week! We wish all of our second graders and their families a wonderful, safe, and happy summer!
