News for Parents:

Our second grade field trip is next Monday, April 3rd.  

Read everyday!!!!!!!!
  • If I give the students one word everyday for the entire school year, the students would remember 25 - 35 words, but if the students reads nightly the student will grow 3,000 words in one year. I can not teach this, and you can not teach this, students need to feed themselves nightly with a good book.  
Monday is library and holiday shopping day.  

Spelling for Second Grade
CISD is wanting teachers to work on word patterns. Students should be able to generate news words using the word patterns learned each week.  I will assess new learning when I conference with students during writing and while grading of stories.  

Contractions continued using -not, have and had  Examples are:  shouldn't, doesn't, aren't, haven't, isn't, you've, we've, I've, could've, hadn't, she'd, he'd
Word Wall words are:  can't, don't, wouldn't, couldn't, you're, I'd, they're

Reading:  Read nightly 10 - 15 minutes each night.

Homework is always extra practice do spend more than 20 minutes a night completing homework.  

Classroom Info:
Please review addition and subtraction facts with your child.
Please review the spelling word patterns with your child.  Spelling lists will be sent home on Friday the week before it is due, assessment will be through students writing or word practice here in the classroom, sometimes students will do a word study practice sheet usually every other Friday.  Spelling grades are averaged together and counted as one daily grade per nine weeks.  This is the guideline from the district.   
Friday folder: Please send back on Monday, signed. Please let me know if you do not receive graded papers.  
Please send a note if your child is absent stating the reason, and be sure to include the date and teacher's name. If your student arrives after 8:05, they will be marked tardy.  If they arrive after 9:00 they are marked absent for the day.  
If you need to pick your students up early from school it has to be before 2:00 P.M.  
On days when your child's transportation plans change, please send a note with them telling how they will be getting home, and who is responsible for picking them up.  I am unable to make transportation changes without a note.
