*As we take our middle of the year NWEA tests, please try not to schedule any appointments if possible during these times. Students have to complete the assessments prior to leaving for Winter Break. Also please make sure the student gets plenty of rest and a nutritious breakfast. Thanks for your help with this.*
Please make time for your student to get on Moby Max at least 3x a week in reading & math to get ready for NWEA coming up!

Music Program Information
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 classroom 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 and slacks for the boys, and dresses or skirts for the girls. Any shoes are fine. If you have any questions, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (317) 594-4170 and ask to be connected to the music teacher.

Practice your words using Spelling City:
On Blackboard, there are ideas for home activities for students to do with their spelling words as well as their sight words. It is important they spend time at home practicing them.
We are starting our next Unit of Study - 'How To' Writing. In this unit, students will choose something they would like to teach or share with other students that they think they are an expert on.
Lessons in this unit include brainstorming a list of things students can teach others and make a list of materials needed. Then students will use pictures and words to share the steps the reader would need to follow. After sharing the directions with a partner, writers will change or add steps that will make them easier to understand.
Students will learn to:
· Write a how-to piece using a familiar topic.
· Use transition words to make directions easier to follow.
· Share writing with a partner and revise steps to make ideas more specific.
· Use precise words or description to help the reader follow the directions.
This unit gives second graders an opportunity for real world writing. You can help your child by sharing activities where you follow written directions. Using a recipe when cooking with your child is a perfect way to practice using step-by-step directions. As you are sampling the food, talk about pictures or extra steps that would have made the directions easier for both of you to understand.
