Week in a Peek Sept. 15, 2014

              Our Class Goal for Counting Coins
     Everyone should be comfortable counting mixed combinations of dimes, nickels, and pennies.  We should be able to count coins up to $1.00.  Please practice at home with real coins. Do not use the quarter in your mix of coins yet.  When counting, begin with the largest value first.  For example count the dimes first, add on nickels next, then pennies last.

           Red or Blue Decodable Books
     Our little decodable books 1 and 2 are off to a great start.  Our GOAL for the word lists in the back of the book, is to be read with 100% accuracy.

     Enoch Tigers are Grrrrreat! 

Welcome 2014-15 School Year!

  Welcome to the 2014-15 School Year!

       Hello,  I am Mrs. Jenson, a second grade teacher here at Enoch Elementary.   There's nothing like a room full of children ready and eager to learn!

This year Mr. Ekker, our Principal, invited all of the students to help him in creating another great school motto.  

      It HAD to be just right.  Many great, creative ideas streamed in!  And it's no wonder, because Enoch Elementary has the best students in the world.

Our new motto is perfect.  It reminds us each morning of who we are and what we can accomplish.

                          WE ARE SMART, RESPECTFUL, AND SUCCESSFUL

                                         WE ARE THE ENOCH TIGERS

                                                        NO EXCUSES!

Bug Costumes

Learning the music and dances for BUGZ has been exciting.  We have less than a month to prepare and polish our program.  This musical is one you won't want to miss!  Each boy and girl will have a speaking part, dance, and sing.  All of the girls will wear black and red to represent ladybugs.  The boys will wear camo clothes to represent army ants.  

Boys need to have a camouflage shirt for the BUGZ program.  Camouflage pants are welcome but not necessary.  If you do not have a shirt, please let me know and we’ll check with the other boys and see if we can come up with one for you to borrow for the program.
Girls need to wear red and black clothing.  You can were pants, skirt, or dress.
                     Speaking Parts
Memorize your speaking parts.  Remember to speak clearly and use expression like we have practiced in class.  You’ll sound great!

Rock Stars in Our Class!

Rock Cycle Study
During the next two weeks we will be learning about the rock cycle.  Please begin collecting small rocks of different color, gloss, and texture –rough, smooth or sharp edges. 

The rocks should be small enough to fit into an egg carton.  You must collect your own rocks.  You may not use rocks that other people have collected in your family.  This is a brand new collection of rocks. 

You will not be required to identify the specific minerals.  We will be looking more at the variety of color, gloss, and texture.   Also remember the general area where you found these special rocks.

BRING YOUR ROCK COLLECTION IN YOUR EGG CARTON AS SOON AS YOU GET IT ALL FILLED UP.                      (Minimum of 12 different rocks)

Next Monday is our field trip to The Wizard Of Oz!   Thank you for your $1 donation.  Good Luck Marina!
If you have not turned in the permission slip for your child, I will send one home to you and note it on your Homework Tracker.

Thanks for remembering to bring fun things for our prize box. Every week we are surprised with new additions.  Candy, small toys, and trinkets are treasures.

                   Enoch Tigers are the GRRRRREATest.
