Hope you all had a great weekend!
All of the second grade students enjoyed our in-house field trip: Mad Science! Each student enjoyed the hands-on field trip in which they observed and participated in chemical and physical changes in matter; states of matter: solids, liquids, and gases; bases and acids and how they affected experiments and cause changes; chemical reactions; and the students even got to conduct their own experiments on their desks manipulating and creating their own “Glop!”
A reminder as we will be having a “Second Grade Music Program” on Wednesday, May 29th., from 2:00-2:50 in the small cafeteria please join us for this cultural, musical program!
There will be no spelling homework and no spelling test this week. We will also have a science test on Friday, Chapter 9, Matter. Please continue to review multiplication/division flash cards with your child as well as reviewing time and money. Thank you for support!
