  • Welcome to 2D!




    WOW!  I cannot believe we are in the month of February already. 

    Will Phil see his shadow?

    We will be celebrating the 100th day of school on Wednesday, February 2nd. 

    Tilden will continue showing their school spirit every Friday by wearing red and white or clothing that says Hamburg Hawks and/or Tilden Elementary.  Each student who wears these colors/theme on a Friday will be entered into a drawing for our classroom.  At the end of the month, we will pull one name for our classroom drawing.  The student whose name is drawn will be able to pick a prize from the Hawk prizes!  GO HAWKS!

    In math, we continue to work on and practice our fluency skills with our addition and subtraction facts.  Students have been working hard on our Fact Master Challenge.  Students are working on completing 25 addition facts in one minute with 100% accuracy.  Students’ fact homework will be aligned to where they are currently in their individual challenge. Students are also working towards earning an ice cream sundae for mastering their facts! Our fact master challenge is due FEBRUARY 10th!  Students have been working hard on adding 2-digit numbers plus 2-digit numbers with and without carrying.  We are currently working on subtracting 2-digit numbers with and without regrouping.  We have been using the following poem to help students know when and when not to regroup.

    In English Language Arts, we continue to learn about our new Literacy Footprints program. We will continue our small reading groups throughout the year to work through the lessons based on students’ ability.  We are currently working on our Jan Richardson benchmark testing.

    Winter has made its appearance and brought the cold weather!  Please make sure you child is dressed appropriately for outside recess.  Our playground is on a hill, so it gets windy.  Please have your child bring a winter jacket, hat, and gloves to put on at recess!  We need the students healthy and in school as much as possible, so they do not fall behind in their academic studies.
