A gallon ziploc bag with your name clearly marked will help keep things organized. Show your spirit by wearing neon this Friday. Let's regain that Spirit Stick Second grade!!!


Please send in any unwanted empty shoe boxes. We would like to use them for our November Enrichment Day decorations.

Reminders

  • Please remember to have your child at morning assembly by 7:40am. Morning assembly is a great way to start our day together as a class family.
  • Make sure to check and initial their Panther folder daily for behavior notes and school/community information.
  • Check their blue Homework folder for any assignments. Remember all homework is given Monday and due Thursday with the exception of spelling tests, which will be administered on Friday.

Reading

We focus on making connections with our reading. As readers we connect to the text and hold on to deep connections versus shallow ones. A deeper connection will help with meaning.


Students will be expected to have at least one library book within their colored dot.

Reading Skill

This week we look at fact versus opinion. We recognize a fact as something that can be proven and an opinion as someone's belief or feeling.

Writing

As writers, we prepare our stories for future publication. We look at our work through different lenses and meet with others for revision and support.

Grammar

We will continue to write using complete sentences. We'll focus on the difference between a statement and a question. They should apply knowledge to their own writing as well as others.

Spelling

This week we focus on contractions. Although students are expected to master these words, applying the phonics rule will aid in their writing and reading.
