Our second graders are spending this week planning, tinkering, and building their compound machines. We have visited our Tinker lab last week to learn about the different tools and materials they could use to create their machines. Students have been given choices to work together in groups, by pairs or individually. They are very excited about this project.
We are starting our Punctuation unit this week. The big idea of this unit is Writers use punctuation to craft their writing in order to create meaning for their reader.
We will continue our unit on Book Clubs until after the break. Students seem to enjoy sharing their questions, reactions and connections about the books they are reading. Students are starting to recommend books that they love to their friends.
Students will continue to learn different strategies in adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers. Here’s what we’re doing this week.G2 Unit 4 Topic E Newsletter

Message from the PE Department
This is our last week for ice skating. After the February break we will be in our team building and fitness units.
This week the rink is still open but it will soften as temps again go above freezing.
In any case, keeping it safe, we will skate this week unless it rains or the ice becomes too soft.
Often our lighter skaters (grades pre-k to 2nd grade) can continue to skate when heavier/older grade skaters cannot.
We will inform you ahead of time of any closures so that parents assisting can save a trip to school.
For now all students should be ready to skate.
Thank you very much!
