Our First Week

This first week of school was filled with smiles, laughter, lots of kindness and... POPSICLES!

I am very excited for many adventures with all of you this school year!

Book "Shelfie" 

The campers had so much fun making reading connections with friends during our "Shelfie Tour".  Students wrote notes to friends to explain their reading connection or to jot what they noticed about them as a reader. Students used the sentence frames below to write their notes.

_________ I noticed that you like  __________________________.

_________ I like reading ________________________ too. 

I loved learning about the kiddos as readers and making many connections with them. The excitement was contagious! 

Grade 2 Open House

Open House is coming up and I am looking forward to seeing all of you! Our Open House is scheduled on Thursday, September 13th at 6:00.

Book Opinions 

The campers have published an opinion writing piece on one of their favorite books. The students worked hard to hook their reader with a juicy introduction, to write about their favorite part, picture, character or lesson to support their opinion about their book, and to include a powerful ending by telling their reader to go do something. The campers will be sharing this piece of writing with their grandparent(s) or special grand-freind(s) and with their parent(s) at our learning celebration! I am so proud of the writing they continue to produce!

Character Series Poster

The students collected stop and jots as they read multiple books on a character through a character series such as Cam Jansen, A-Z Mysteries, Stink, etc. The stop and jots included character traits and the evidence from their book to support the character trait. At the end of the series, students looked to see what five character traits popped up most often in their reading. Students then created character posters including the five character traits and a favorite stop and jot that they wrote.

A Visit From Public Works

Camp Davis had the opportunity to learn about Public Works and what they do to keep our roads clean and safe. 

The campers even got to sit in some of the equipment. This was a huge highlight!
