Dinnette Johnson's Classroom: Welcome to 2nd Grade!

Partnering with Parents to Enrich the Student Learning Experience

Week of June 5, 2017. . .

We had fun celebrating our poetry writing at our Beatnik Cafe on Thursday. We played smooth jazz and read our poems while having cookies and juice. And we looked groovy in our berets. Some students even sported goatees and mustaches. Cool, man!

This is the last week of assigned homework. I hope students will continue to read, work on writing of all types, solve real-life math problems, and generally continue to learn while on vacation this summer. Next week, I will be sending home some math work that can help prepare students prepare for grade 3 math. This work can be done during the summer. It isn't mandatory.

Also next week, we will celebrate with a Pirate Day on Wednesday, June 14. Look for a notice coming home on Monday, June 5.

Have a great week!
