I learned about fairy tales, that they have good and bad characters, and they start with Once upon a time and end with Happily ever after.

Homework Information

Important Notice: Homework will be graded. It is 10% of a student grade.


If students are in need of a new reading log or homework assignment, please go to our second grade website Katyisd.org. The reading log/word study homework is attached to the website or have your child pick one up from the classroom. Thank you for assisting me with matter.


The word study worksheets are the sounds we are working on in class. Please assist students with this assignment and teach them to listen for the sounds to spell the words correctly and make words using those letter(s).


Students are to read for 20 minutes daily. Please write the date, write the title of book, and how many times the book(s) have been read in the tally mark section. Students were given a book on their reading level to go along with this assignment. Students can also read other books to assist in their reading.


Please have students read the same book more than once. One of the best strategies for readers is to reread their books. Rereading builds fluency and understanding. Each time a student reads a book, they will get more meaning out of it. The first reading is to become familiar with the text. The second reading is focused on comprehension. The third reading is for the student to be able to retell. Please tally mark each time the book was read. Also, write down that the book was read at home in the home/school section.



Homework is given every Friday and due the next Friday . If your child lost their homework, please go to the second grade website to get a copy of the homework and the reading log. Thank you


Next Due Date: December 11, 2015


Thank you for assisting your child with their homework.

KidBlog

Students are using Kidblog in the classroom. Please assist us this this blog. Thank you!!!


Parents please log onto https://kidblog.org/class/kelleys-kids-konnections/posts . Your child is blogging about books they are reading in class. It would mean the world to them to know you are commenting on their post and someone besides me is reading what they are writing.


Students can also blog while they are at home about exciting events that are happening. Having a child write their thoughts down assist them in their writing because it teaches them how to express themselves by adding in details and using correct punctuation.


Please keep comments positive. :) Thank you for logging on and following us.


Having students write daily will create strong writers that will help them to express their thoughts and feelings.

Snacks

Students are allowed to bring a snack and a water bottle to class only. Please do not add flavors or bring juice to drink during classroom hours. Students can have those items during lunch. Please send healthy snacks only such as: dry cereal, granola bars, gold fish,dry fruit, and ect. These snacks provide healthy long lasting energy and transfer to student's work.


Please make sure your child has his/her snack because we have snack time daily.

Library

We have library every Wednesday, and a library lesson every other Wednesday. Please make sure students bring their library books to school every Wednesday, so they are able to check out their two books and are able to keep up with their reading.


Parents, students are allowed to check out two books. If both books are not returned, students will not be allowed to check out books. Please make sure students have both books on Wednesday.
