PETS AT SCHOOL

 

       Your family pet is being invited to visit our classroom as a Show and Tell on Tues. 6-6-17. Each child will have a chance to talk about their pet. If your pet cannot visit, you can send a picture or drawing of the pet. If you do not have a pet, your child can draw or bring in a picture of a pet they have had or would like to have in the future.

       Pets that can be kept in a cage, tank, or holder, can be brought in the morning to spend the day.  Dogs, cats and any others are to be brought in at 2:00 with an adult to handle them. Some pets may need a strong arm to hold them when they are nervous. Please be sure your pet is properly vaccinated before their visit.

       All parents are welcome to join us for the pets’ Show and Tell.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

ALL PETS GO HOME AT 3:15.  Pet Day is 6-6-17

PLEASE  RETURN  THE  BOTTOM  PORTION BY 6-5-17

SECOND GRADE NEWS: 5-19-17

 

Mon. 5-22   WE ARE SKIPPING THE REVIEW LESSON IN Unit 5. We are moving onto Unit 6. A new list was included with the Parent letter today. I will try to get the list onto the St. John’s website. Spelling test: U6 L26    Reading: page 322-361   The story is very long. Please be sure to help your child read it at home so they will know the main idea, plot, setting and all about the characters.   

 

Tues.           5-23  Memory: For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. 1st Corinthians 11:26     Library – return books only

 

Wed. 5-24            Show & Tell    Chapel       Bring a bagel with your choice of butter, cream

                                      cheese, etc. for an afternoon snack.

 

Thurs. 5-25          Memory: “Given and shed for you for the forgiveness of sins.” These words, along with the bodily eating and drinking, are the main thing in the Sacrament. (This is the short version of the memory work that is due. Your child can say this portion for half the grade instead of saying nothing for a zero grade.)

                                      Social Studies Unit 4 test.

Science: The class worms are here. You can look for earthworms from your garden, backyard or at someone else’s house and bring them in any time. Send then in a plastic container in the morning and we will add them to the compost. We will talk about their value and what they do for the soil.

 

Have a blessed weekend,

Map Testing: Some will have time next week to finish their test. Most

completed both the reading and math test. When you see the results, please

note the length of time that was taken to complete the test. Results for

some will be affected by the speed in which the test was completed.

 

LOOKING AHEAD TO THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR:

        Pets at School date will be Tuesday, 6/7/17 from 2-3 p.m. More

information in a few weeks, along with a return sheet to let me know your

pet will be visiting.

 

P. E. Class: We are learning the old art of jumping rope. Many are getting

better but could use some extra help at home. I have plenty of jump ropes

if you need to borrow one for a few weeks. Also, I’m looking for a second

rope turner to help me next week teach them how to jump in when two are

turning the rope. P.E. class is Tuesday & Thursday 12:30-1:10. You could

even demonstrate for me since my jumping days are over.  

 

Have a blessed weekend,

Mrs. Mackie
