Ms. Kellie Dixon « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

Dear parents, students, and family, 

School is quickly coming to an end and I can't believe we only have 4 weeks remaining of school.  With that being said, please encourage your child to be reading nightly so they can reach their final 9 weeks AR goal.  Sheets went home in the binders letting students know how many points they still need to reach their goal.  They have all been working so hard and I know they will finish the year strong.

We are back to our regular homework and testing schedule this week.  Students will have nightly reading homework Monday-Wednesday that will focus on reading and reading comprehension, and their Spelling three times each to be completed on Thursday to get them ready for their Spelling test on Friday.  The spelling words are listed on my calendar below.

We have finished up our Second grade math units so our students are now moving onto getting ready for third grade math, which consists of completing work in the classroom, so that is why the math homework looks a little different lately.  Coming home for homework in Math is a Drops in the Bucket worksheet.  These worksheets are great reviews for the students from all the material they have learned throughout the year.

Bio-buddy project letters went home and is also attached below.  The bio-buddy project will be 60% of your child's Social Studies grade.  Students will have until May 4th to complete the project, with no late work accepted.  Please get with me as soon as possible if you have any questions.

Friendly reminder that you should be checking your students homework nightly, as well as, their binders.  Please contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have via your child's agenda or email. 

With the end of the year approaching please let me know if you are in need of any help to reach your PI hours. 

 

 Love,

Ms. Dixon
