After last week’s investigation into graphing, the Magical Minds are data analysis whizzes. If they start asking you questions, and recording your answers on a T-chart, you can be sure there is a bar graph or pie chart in your future.
The Final Week of School:
The last stretch will be spent finishing projects. The Magical Minds are busy writing their final fiction stories, which will be shared at our End-Of-The-Year picnic. We are also preoccupied with wrapping up our Scratch programs. The second graders are creating games, which will be posted by the end of next week (if all goes well). The Magical Minds are also inspired to finish up the poems they started last week, and we look forward to sharing our Magical Poem Collection at the end of the year. On December 18th we began our US Road Trips Unit, and this week we are winding up our cross-country journey's.
Homework is optional this week. As always, I recommend reading for at least 20 minutes each day.
