THE HOOT -  News from Ms. Lavoie’s Second Grade - 2/12/16
Hello Everyone,
Thanks to those of you who helped to make our Valentine’s Day party a huge success.  It was nice to have a healthy snack in addition to the “Sweet” treats.
Memoir Project- On Friday last week we all gathered together to talk about our Memoir Project.  We watched  “Too Many Tamales” a memoir so that our writers can get a clear understanding that they need to be interviewing an adult of their choice and focusing on a memorable event in their special person’s life.  It is very important that the notes are turned in on the day we get back from vacation because our young authors will be using those notes to become a storyteller and write a memoir.  The memoirs will be shared at our Trimester Tea.
Science - As a whole second grade group we are conducting an experiment on what we think will happen  (hypothesis) to three different combinations of water when put in the freezer (during vacation).  One bottle is plain water, one is water mixed with salt, and the third is water mixed with oil. We are also going to take this science opportunity to see what happens with the water level when frozen.  
Math - The second math standard is “Solves word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using $ and ¢ symbols appropriately”.  Any practice at home during vacation on counting by 1, 5, 10, and 25, naming their coins and their values, and practicing counting money is greatly appreciated.  Before we can begin working on our second grade standard, we need to ensure that our learners have that foundation previously taught in grade kindergarten and grade one.   Thanks for your assistance.
