Since returning from spring break, there have been some changes happening here at Jeffers. The first and most obvious is change brought about by the construction company that will be building our fabulous new school! A ground breaking ceremony was held on Tuesday and the whole school was invited. We got hard hats, had our picture taken in the GH Tribune, and everything!
We've also begun seeing a lot more dads at school lately. The Watch DOGS program officially kicked off this week and our class was lucky enough to have FOUR students represented by dads in the building. A great big thank you to Sean Flemming, Eric Brown, Brandon Meigs, and Kaj Langlois!!! You are a big reason why Jeffers is such a great place to learn!!!!!
Finally, some new units of study were begun in the classroom this week. Students began learning how to read analog (two-handed) clocks to five minutes. Data has shown that this is a tough learning objective for second graders, so any support you can offer at home is helpful. There are lots of free time telling apps available. Hint, hint.
Here were some of our learning goals this week:
