Hello Second grade families,
Can you believe we are on our 4th week of school? There is so much going on in second grade. We are rapidly adjusting to our daily routines.
Homework: Please make sure your child is practicing all 15 spelling words (including challenge words.) Students are graded on all 15. Challenge words will be counted as extra credit on our first spelling test, but they will be graded on all 15 on future tests.
Field Trip: I have 1 parent volunteer for our October field trip, I need at least 3 more in order for us to go. Please email me if you can help!
Social Studies: We had a social studies test scheduled for last Friday, but we were not able to take it in class. We spent the rest of the day reviewing. On Monday, I will be sending home a study guide. Please review it with your child. The test is rescheduled for this Tuesday (9/19)
Seesaw App: Please make sure to sign up!
Scholastic Book Order: Please support our class! For every book that you order we get Scholastic points that can be used to purchase books for our classroom library. The orders are due this Friday! I will be placing the order after school. Thank you.
