Mrs. Lee's Second Grade News

Valley View Elementary

What's Coming?

Picture Retake Day is scheduled for this Thursday, October 1st. Students who did not attend the Back to School Fair will need to have their pictures taken. We will also be taking a class picture and a whole school picture on this day. Picture retake forms were sent home last week.


In Reading the kids will be setting individual reading goals this week. So far this year we have been working on a whole class goal of reading stamina (staying in one spot, and reading the entire time). In Math our classroom was chosen to have a teacher from the Bridges Math Curriculum teach our math lesson for a day. On Wednesday all second grade teachers from Valley View and Riverside will be observing our classroom during the morning. The kids are excited to have visitors and a guest teacher!


What can you do at home for math practice?

  • Have your child practice counting by 2's, 5's, and 10's.
  • Have your child say if a number is odd or even, and explain why.
  • Reference the parent letter from Unit 1 when helping with homework.
