Students will be bringing home a Thanksgiving Break project today. They are asked to create a map of their community they live in (on the provided construction paper). Students will be graded on this. The criteria is explained on a paper attached to the construction paper. Here is the letter that came home today: Constructing a Map Second Grade Activity
Here are two great websites that can be used to help students prepare for the NWEA MAP Test that is taken three times a year. I highly recommend that students use these sites multiple times a week to assist them in becoming familiar with the format of the test.
This year, our class will be having a “Pie Feast” instead of a “Thanksgiving Feast”. Our schedule is so packed on Tuesday, that time doesn’t allow us to have a large (timely) party. I still feel that sitting and eating together while showing our appreciation for each other is a part of the Thanksgiving tradition.
This year, I am looking for volunteers who can send in the following for our Pie Feast:
- 3 pumpkin pies (same parent does not need to send in all 3)
- 3 apple pies (same parent does not need to send in all 3)
- 1 package (24 minimum) of plates
- 1 box of forks (24 minimum)
- 3 cans of whipped cream (same parent does not need to send in all 3)
Please reply with the item that you are planning to send in along with your child’s name. Thank you for your help and support!!!

Time is ticking and we are wrapping up our first semester of the 2014-2015 school year! Conferences are during the month of November (11/13/14, 11/19/14, and 11/20/14). In order to receive your child’s report card, you must attend your scheduled conference time.
By clicking on the link below, you will see the fall conference schedule days and times for our class. If you cannot attend the day/time that you are scheduled for, please notify me ASAP so that other arrangements can be made to fit your schedule. If a daytime conference works better for you, please let me know and those arrangements can be made for you as well.
Please notice that there is a sign up post further down the page (or just click on Halloween link below) – if you wish to send items in for our Halloween Party on Friday!!!!
