This Thursday, we will be taking our selection test, and it is very important that each student studies and learns the vocabulary for this week. You can find the words on the sheet sent home every Monday. Thanks for all your support at home.
Looking for PI hours? You can go on pinterest and look up second grade math games. There are a ton of them! Create one and send it in with your student. Be sure to state how much money and time you spent on creating the hands on activity. We are entering Unit 3 which covers:
adding 2 addends
add 3 addends
relate addition and subtraction 5+4=9 9-4=5
numberlines help solve problems
acting out helps solve problems
However, any second grade math game will be accepted.
Snack: Please be sure to pack a healthy snack daily for your child. This is a quick snack to help us make it to our lunch time at 12:31 pm. The snack should be able to be eaten with their fingers and be of nutritious value. Grapes, carrot and or celery sticks, gold fish, apples, pretzels, cheese-its, and fruit snacks are just a few suggestions. I will not have extra snacks available, so please make sure that your child has one packed. Second, your child may bring in a water bottle to place on their desk. This will help with the up and down of going to the water fountain. The only thing that I ask is that the water bottle not have a screw top. If it gets knocked over, it could cause a mess. If you should have any questions about either the snack or water bottles, please feel free to contact me.
Homework: Homework starts this week. Homework will be given Monday through Thursday. I ask that you look over your child's homework and initial each piece. Please remember that the homework is due the next day unless I specify differently. Homework turned in a day late will automatically receive a 60% (unless the child has been absent).
Email: When emailing me, please be sure to put "student" in the subject line.
