Family Focus

This year we are taking more of a family focused approach to homework. We believe that spending quality family time is vital in the success of your student. We will provide family friendly, engaging homework activities and assignments. We would love if you would send us pictures of these activities and share them with us.


This weeks Family focus: Read stories at home, make connections to the text read aloud and discuss the various story elements such as: Characters, setting, retelling the events of the story etc.

2nd Grade Adventures

In order to promote high attendance, we will be spelling out the word ATTENDANCE. Each day that our class has 100% attendance a letter will be added. When the whole word is spelled out, we will celebrate. We will also have a school wide prize for the grade level with the highest attendance. Please help us reach our goal in 2nd grade!

Academics

ELAR: This week students will listen to stories about insects and identify facts from the text read aloud. Students will also discuss singular and plural nouns.

Phonics- Students will review VCe

Math: Students will solve one and multi-step addition and subtraction problems.
