Its coming to an end.....

We are becoming very busy in the classroom. At the end of the school year we have a lot of events and fun activities to do. This past week our class started our plant unit. We made our own greenhouses and we are waiting for something to sprout. We make observations daily. We also did some fun Earth Day crafts! On Friday, we had our Relay for Life event. We had a great time walking for love ones and the students loved the snow cones after!  This week we are going to start on our end of the year notebooks and our mother's day presents. This is a busy time of year for us! I am becoming sad though because I only have 23 days left with my sweet kiddos! They are all ready for 3rd grade but I am going to miss them!!!

Data Notebooks

This last nine weeks of school my students are going to keep up with their own classroom data. We have put together folders where the students can graph their  data. Each Friday we take about 20 minutes to graph our progress and discuss if we are getting closer to our goals. We graph our ORF score for progress monitoring that week, our weekly spelling test grade, our current AR points, and our current facts in a flash level the student is on. The students have loved doing this and they looked forward to Friday so that can see their progress! I will send these folders home with your child at the end of the year. Check out some pictures of us in action graphing our progress.
