THE HOOT -  News from Ms. Lavoie’s Second Grade - 1/15/16
Hi Everyone!!
This has been a full week with getting all of the NWEA tests completed for our mid year check in!  The children have been working very hard to show us how much they have learned!  We second grade teachers will be using the data from this round of testing to assist us with targeting our instruction in English/Language Arts/Math and setting up upcoming math groups.
We have been weaving in some activities this week that focus on Martin Luther King Jr..  They have included, readings, videos, writing, and skills work. The children were also able to complete an art and writing activity that shows MLK Jr. along with their own dreams.  These are on display in our hallway and look great!
In English/Language Arts we have continued with our nonfiction unit. Our lessons typically begin with a great book that we use to model an element of nonfiction and then allow the students to try out and practice strategies that good readers use. We usually conclude our lessons with sharing how we used our new strategy during practice time.  This is done with a partner or the whole group and really enjoyed by everyone!
In math we are continuing to work on learning and practicing those skills that will bring us to the end of our current math instruction groups.
Please remember that there is no school on Monday as it is Martin Luther King Jr. Day.  Also we will be having Rug Rats Skiing on Friday 22nd. Please be on the lookout for the Rug Rats Reminder next week where you will indicate where your child will be picked up and by whom.
Have a wonderful three day weekend!
