    Dear Families,         I hope the weekly document sent home,  Our Week At A Glance, is keeping  you informed with what we are learning and what homework is due. The following is a brief overview of where we are and where we are going in the learning continuum.   In Reading Workshop, Writing Workshop, Math, and Science, students continue to demonstrate a thorough understanding of how our classroom community operates.  They are becoming more independent  learners as the end of second grade is fast approaching. In Reading Workshop, students are setting reading goals during conferencing, and interacting  well with a partner, or within a group. Please review my weekly comments on your child's reading log.  During weekly conferences,  I meet with your child to discuss the strategies I observe them using,  model a strategy I would like them to practice, and set weekly reading goals.   My instruction and suggestions are intended for them to become stronger readers. They are doing very well in applying set goals! Over the next month , our class will be reading multiple texts on insects. Students will learn how to read closely various articles, and books on different kinds of insects.  They will annotate the important details by coding the text with a star, or underlining an important phrase or word.  These  skills will deepen their understanding of what they are reading. A research project will also be completed on an insect at the end of the year.  During Writing Workshop, students will continue to learn how various authors gather their ideas, and how they can share and reflect on their own writing with a partner, or within a group.  Last month, our  focus was on "Letter Writing" and understanding the five parts of a friendly letter (heading, greeting, body, closing, signature) .   Ask your child to sing the song we have learned in class that outlines these five components.  Over the next two weeks, Ike, our class pet will be sent home with a journal for your child
