2nd Grade Happenings

October 5, 2017

Even though this is only a four day week, I was happy that we were able to consistently do math and language arts every day.
I have started looking at the MAP test scores. All I can say is YEAH!!!! I am so proud of the scores. Everyone took the test seriously and did their best! I can't wait to share the scores with you at conferences in a few weeks.

Student/Parent/Teacher Conferences

These are scheduled for October 26th and 27th. Please look in next week's Thursday's Notes for the day and time of your child's conference.

Math - Mad Minutes

The Mad Minutes that your child has done each week go home in your Thursday Notes. Please use these to help guide your child's homework of practicing their basic math facts up to 18. The students have two minutes to complete all the problems on their Mad Minute sheet.

God's Time - Kelso's Choice

During God's Time over the next couple of weeks we will be reviewing (or learning) Kelso's Choice. This is a conflict management program. Students are taught to differentiate between minor problems that they can solve and those that are potentially dangerous and serious. The goal is to teach students several positive ways to deal with these minor conflict situations. To do this they will be asked that they try two different choices when they have a "small" problem. If a child encounters a "big" problem they are always encouraged to go to a trusted adult.

Hopefully, your child will come home talking about this program. It can even be used at home.
