We are very excited to show off the hard work your students have been doing in music class this year with a performance! The second grade concert will begin promptly at 7:00 PM on Thursday, December 18th in the CRES gymnasium. Students should report to their homeroom teacher’s Classrooms at 6:45 PM. The performance will last about 20-30 minutes. Students should wear semi-formal attire they can move freely in such as polos, dress shirts, slacks, and dresses or long skirts for the girls. Any shoes are fine. If you have any questions, please e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org or call (317) 594-4170 and ask to be connected the music teacher.

I have explained the plan to students this past week and we will start on Monday! They will color in a word after completing tasks. The goal is to color all the way to the !. Please look to see if they have had any reminders during the day or notes. It will be in their GO folder each night!
This week we will continue to dive into REALISTIC FICTION!! We will be diving into Character traits.
Weekly reading homework:
Homework will include: 20 minutes of reading and also 2 story maps (due by NEXT Monday, November 24th). Students have been working on story maps in class!! During the middle and end, they need to use the words: First, Next, Then, Last. See the picture below!
This week students will be working on their draft of their story. We have been working on beginning, middle, and end. When we are revising we will be adding the words: first, next, then, and last.
Our new sight words are: means, old, any, some, tell
Our new sort is: short a, long a, ai, ay patterns

This week we will learn how to add with regrouping.
Math Homework: November Math homework can be turned in when it is ALL complete :)
Attached you will find Math Practice sheets. Please complete 1 per week during the month of November. Each Monday, students will bring in their packet with a signature. I will check to make sure the page is complete. I will grade the packet when they are all finished on the 24th of November. There is a BONUS Page as well! Please have your student complete the work and verbally explain how they came to their answer. They are to do the writing and the thinking.
Moby Max is a website that is used for MANY different reasons. The reason that we as educators like it is for Math. I like how it gives the students math at their level. It also self motivates by allowing game time when tasks are completed. Everyone is set up but not everyone has been on yet!
