Homework went home today for Unit 3 Week 1. I just wanted to let you know that we spoke as a class today, as we do every week homework is sent home, and I emphasized how important homework and school work are and how important putting forth your best effort heading in to trimester two. Second grade is a big jump from first grade and expectations of students are higher.
I am so proud of what we have accomplished as a class thus far! I cannot wait until conferences to show you what we have been working on!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and got to play in the snow!!!
Because of our TWO snow days and Fridays Teacher Workshop, there is no homework/spelling this week. Because grade are closing, we are revisiting some concepts that need some review in Wonders. We will resume Wonders next week.
In math today the students received their logins for Xtra Math and completed the initial placement activity. This website can also be accessed at home at anytime for students to practice their math fluency. Again, it is a great tool for me to track their progress so make sure if it is accessed at home that the work in done 100% independent, so I can use this as an additional tool to drive my small group instruction. Students will be using this weekly on the ipads in class, during math rotations.
Brrrr....It is cold outside! Please make sure students come to school prepared. We will be going out for TWO recesses a day...even when snow and slush is on the ground. Students needs boots, snow pants, gloves, hats and a winter jacket EVERYDAY!!! I would even suggest an extra pair of socks to change into, because feet are wet and cold for the rest of the day if they are playing hard in the snow. The nurse does not have extra snow gear to loan out. Also, please make sure they bring sneakers or a dry pair of shoes to change into each day. Wet boots make the classroom floor very slippery and dangerous.
Theme Basket Items - Can be brought in anytime. We have received about 5 items so far. Thank you!!!
2nd Grade Conferences will take place in January - PLEASE VISIT THE IMPORTANT DATES TAB!!!
