The book fair is at Swans Creek for a few more days. Although our buying time was last week, students may still purchase books. If you would like your child to purchase books, please send money in an envelope with your child's name and “book fair” written on it. The book fair will be open on Wednesday evening; families may come to purchase books.
In math this week, we are starting another number sense and computation unit. We will be focusing on addition including regrouping this week. Students will also solve addition story problems and review estimating.
Last week we started our Community unit in social studies. Our end of unit test will be this Friday. Students have been looking at pictures and discussing the differences between communities long ago and in modern times.
In reading, we are starting a new unit on comparing and contrasting. Students will read a variety of stories and passages and then compare the stories and the characters that are in them.
Students have been busy learning all the lower case cursive letters. Students will begin learning upper case letters next week.
Second graders will attend one more field trip this year. A permission form will be sent home on Wednesday. Please be sure to return the permission form promptly.

Thursday is our field trip to the Aquatics Center at Colgan High School. Please ensure that your child wears a swimsuit under his/her clothes so we can leave Swans Creek on time Thursday morning. This will allow us to spend more time with water safety instructors and less time in the changing rooms. Please send your child with a towel and under garments to change into in a plastic bag. We will have lunch when we return to school at noon. Students who opt out of the field trip and those who have not returned permission forms will work on assignments in another classroom while we are gone. If you have volunteered to chaperone, I will be sending a confirmation email to you.
We will have our weather unit test when we return back from the field trip on Thursday since there will be no school for students on Friday. Students will bring home a study guide on Wednesday to review for the test.
We will have our end of unit reading and on Wednesday. We are currently working on comparing fractions. I will send home a worksheet tomorrow that your child will complete in class on comparing fractions. Please review this with your child.
