2nd Grade - Ratigan

Hello Parents!
We had a fantastic week studying simple machines last week. I loved seeing the great inventions that your scholars brought on Monday, in their picture of the elephant; we have some very creative people in our class! :)

We have also been focusing on Imagine Learning, which has helped many of our scholars raise their reading levels. This program can be used at home and is a great resource and I encourage scholars to use it at home. If your scholar is struggling with their reading level, I know that this will help improve not only their reading scores, but their comprehension and reading strategies as well. :)
With the weather becoming increasingly colder, please send your scholar to school with a winter coat. Many of the scholars are confused between a sweater and coat and we don't want anyone to get sick! :)
Next week is our final week before Christmas Break!!!! We will be having our class party, Sing Around the Tree with the school and Spirit Day, on which your scholar may wear pajamas. Next Tuesday will be a half day and then it's on to Christmas vacation!
Thanks for your support!!  Take care, Miss Ratigan
