We have been working hard on word problems for the last week. Students have been solving problems that compare, have missing information, or have too much information. We are also learning to fluently add numbers under 20. Some skills to reinforce at home are evens and odds and missing addend math problems.

Water Bottle, Snacks and the Daly Store

I would encourage each child to bring a water bottle to class, as we do not have a water fountain in our room. I will send the bottles home on Friday for washing. Also, if your child gets hungry mid-morning, please send and easy to eat snack every day. Thank you for the snacks that have been sent to share!

Please note that the Daly Store's times have changed to earlier in the morning. 2nd grade students may come into the building early on Mondays at 8:00 - 8:15 to "shop" the Daly Store.

Accelerated Reader

The kids are very excited about Accelerated Reader! Students can access AR during our "Read to Self" time during Daily 5 or during library. They can also take AR tests at home on the Daly Elementary website:

They have learned their login information during Tech class and Library. You will be amazed at what they are able to do!
