1) We are taking the CoGAT test Monday and Tuesday morning. Please make sure your child is rested, fed, and on time. Make sure they have a water bottle and a good snack, too!
2) Monday is a class Pajama Day. All 5 tables scored a tie for Dojo Points!
3) If you love grammar, then make an effort to use adverbs repeatedly at home this week. Since adverbs are such a tricky part of speech, I have been using them regularly when I speak to the class. I always try to emphasize them, and often speak in 3rd person, much to their annoyance. :) Feel free to join in on the grammar fun.
4) Thank you to the parents who donated some spaghetti and popsicle sticks. The STEM activity was a hit. We are continuing with it next week. Pictures/videos to come.
Here's some pictures from our class party in February!
Here's a super quick update on what's going on in 2B:
Want to see Coach Funke get dunked on? Sure you do! Join us for a fun night of laughs, entertainment, and basketball. The Harlem Wizards are coming to town and have asked our Coach Funke (and other teachers around our district) to play in a charity basketball game hosted by Highland Park High School.
The Harlem Wizards show brings oohs, aahs, and serious laughter inspired by sky-high slams, hilarious humor, dynamic energy, fan participation, world class tricks and basketball wizardry. The aerodynamic athleticism coupled with comedy and community at a Wizards event will bring fans to their feet and smiles to their faces.
The artistry of the Wizards is evident as they elevate the star-status of the home team featuring teachers, principals and local notables. Never in the history of sport will the losing team have so much fun... Coach Funke hopes so.
