Good evening! I trust this finds you well and that you enjoyed the week. I know we sure did in GATE classes!
Please schedule a parent/teacher conference with your child's classroom teacher. I will review the second grade schedules and attend all conference appointments to the best of my ability.
Students are working hard on grade-level standards, while at the same time studying logic and other enrichment opportunities appropriate for high-ability thinkers.
GATE readers were delighted to complete their first Caldecott Medal reading response. Many submitted their assignment early, so we've enjoyed them slowly over the last few weeks. Remember, the second response is due on Monday, November 2. The menu of response options is in the front pocket of your child's iPad binder. The responses provide your child an opportunity to apply creativity and research skills. I love seeing my students so excited about reading! Hugo Cabret is definitely one of our favorites!
GATE math students spent considerable time practicing double-digit addition with regrouping. I believe their second trimester objectives test reflects how much they've learned! This test will come home for your review next week. If your child needs review, please refer to the posters in the GATE math section of your child's iPad binder. Helpful rhymes are there.... if there's more on the floor, go next door -- and borrow ten more!
Have a great weekend!
