Second Grade News You Can Use
January 11-15, 2016
A Note From Mrs. Graham
Personal Responsibility is another primary focus this nine weeks. My goal is to have each student master coming in each morning, unpacking the folder and planner, turning in homework, and beginning morning work quietly without needing to be reminded of our routine. Your goals at home regarding the folder and planner should be to have your child complete homework, place it back into the folder, have you sign the behavior box in the planner, and then pack both the folder and planner into the backpack for the next morning. We are also using our iPads more independently by being able to log in to AR, taking AR tests, and checking progress toward personal reading goals. In addition, we have begun using our iPads to take reading assessments using the Think Central Portal.
Have you ever tried to take a drink of water laying on your stomach? We tried.
And tried. What we found out is that without a straw, it is practically impossible. We learned that gravity not only keeps us grounded, it also helps with our digestion.
