October is here.....

Posted by Sherrie Harris on 10/5/2023

We’re cruising into October and I’m happy to say that we’re also cruising with our academics. Have fun using the topics highlighted below to encourage your student to share about our classroom happenings.

Language Arts:

We’re practicing the use of consonant clusters such as:                       

st   fl   br   pr   bl   br   cr   gl   sn   sm   gr   pl   tr   fr   cl   sp


 * We completed the adaptation of our Snowshoe Hare stories. Each student created and presented their mini story to the class. Please look for your child’s story today. I must say, I was super pleased with our first attempt at mini books.  Way to go 2nd graders! 🌟



Organizing data- Last week we had a great time organizing data into bar graphs, picture graphs, and tally charts. You’ll see a sample of our work in today’s mail.

2 step story problems- This week, our class did a great job identifying and solving the 2 steps needed in order to solve lengthy story problems.

2 digit addition- Next week, we’ll begin 2 digit addition.  Yippee!!


Halloween- On October 31st we will have our Halloween celebration at the end of the day. We will celebrate with costumes, ghoulish parfaits, and spooky activities. Soon, I’ll ask a few volunteers to contribute specific food items to create our ghoulish parfaits. Please remember that full-face masks/makeup are not allowed and all weapons need to be kept at home.  Please send your child with his/her costume in a bag, the morning of the 31st. 🎃

FYI: No School October 19 and 20th - Montana Education Association Conference 

Have a happy day….  😊
