Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

A message from Year 2

The 2F boys continue to studiously work away at publishing their first books. The amount of brain power going on in our classroom is marvelous. The boys are extremely proud of their work and love sharing it during our daily author circles and conferencing times.

Speaking of books, last month’s first official 2F book club was a huge success. I was very impressed with the type of literature the boys are reading at home on a nightly basis. Their response activities were well done. We had a great time chatting about our favorite books, making reading recommendations and sharing our work, all while having a yummy snack! I look forward to seeing November’s work at the end of the end of the month.

We’ve started unit three in our daily math. As we wrap up this term, further skill building will be focused on graphing and analyzing data, representing and calculating the value of different monetary amounts and place value to 999.

Finally, we’re eagerly anticipating our next visit with baby Andrew and his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Hustler. Last week in HLS, Mrs. Boyce had the boys think about this question: Why do babies cry? The boys came up with some very thoughtful reasons and even more thoughtful reactions that we could try. Here are some:

David: Babies cry when they are hungry. We can help them by giving them a bottle or giving them food. Cammie: Babies cry when they are sad and hungry and hurt and more. We can calm them down by feeding them. Daniel: Babies cry when they’re hungry or need a diaper change. We can calm them by being calm ourselves. Asher: Babies cry when they’re sleepy. We can help calm them by singing a lullaby. Brian: Babies cry because they are sad. We can help calm them by playing classical music.

Until next time …
