THE HOOT -  News from Ms. Lavoie’s Second Grade - 1/22/16

Hello Everyone,
It was a busy four-day week in second grade!  We continue to strive to elevate student thinking when listening to nonfiction books.  We are activating prior knowledge, asking questions to spark curiosity, determining the author’s purpose, looking at the text features (Text features include all the components of a story or article that are not the main body of text. These include the table of contents, index, glossary, headings, bold words, sidebars, pictures and captions, and labeled diagrams), and more!  It is very exciting to see students learning about science and social studies topics through our nonfiction unit.  We have read about the history of popcorn, Martin Luther King, Jr., how magnets work, bats, manatees, and snow leopards.
Thank you for reading to your child and having them read daily.  Education experts agree it is the single most important activity parents can do with their children.  Scholastic News reports the many reasons parents read aloud to their children:
Keep up the good work….For these reasons and more, your child benefits!
We were all so happy to ski in the Rugrats program today.  We are lucky to live in the Western mountains of Maine and have such incredible opportunities!  Please refer to the calendar below for the rest of our ski dates. Thank you for all you do!
