We have had a great first full week! Thanks for sending in the smock and head phones or earbuds!
I also appreciate a note on your child's end of day changes. Even walkers and car riders on rainy days!!! There is much worry on these days by your child. Please call the office or email them your changes to in case of a substitute on our classroom.
Your child will be bring home a parent letter notebook tomorrow with a letter to you each Friday. Each week your child will be talking about the week and the standards they have covered. Please make time to write back to them at least once a month. I need these returned back each Monday. We use these books and communication for word study and there is not anything more authentic then your writing back to them!
A reading book of your child's choice will come home Friday with a reading log for 20 minutes a day or 75 minutes a week. The book and log need to be returned each Friday We will be discussing this at curriculum night.
In math we have just pretested and started some workshop routines. No math assigned yet! No homework will come home unless they need farther practice on a skill and it would be due right the next day. We will start our first unit in math Monday, place value.
Reading and writing I have started pretesting the High frequency words decoding and reading levels.
We have also had a lot of fun too! Our read- a- loud is Horrible Hairy in Room 2B. Ask your child about the author and why is Horrible Harry horrible?
Science is the image of the week will be starting that routine next week. Weather and the effects it has on the earth is our first unit of study along with the tools that measure weather.
Leader In Me is our first social studies discussion and project. Thanks for the pictures!!!!
The last half hour of our day will be social studies and the Leader n Me each day.
Water bottles are welcomed! Curriculum night is next Thursday, Sept. 1st, in the commons, 6-6:45p.m. for second grade and then we will go back to our class to chat and sign up for our student led conference! Please let me know if you are unable to attend that night. I want to be sure you get all the material we will discuss that night!
Continue sending in a note or email me and the office if your child changes their end of the day routine! Thanks for helping me keep your child safe!
I emailed you the first day of class and recently found out it never made it to you. Working at the tech issues. I will be sending out a test email Friday to see if you get it!
Enjoy your weekend!
