We will be reading some fun books and doing art projects to go with the books this week. We will also be doing some end of the year testing. Please continue to review all we have learned this year to be ready for kindergarten in September.
Kindergarten Sight Words:
Your child will be learning sight words in kindergarten next year. These are words that students should know by sight. Our school divides them up into different words for each month. The words for September are: A, I, it, in, is, he, me, we, she, see. You can make flash cards for these words and begin to have your child learn these words over the summer.
Early Start Celebration
We are working hard on our songs for our Early Start Celebration on June 14th at 10:00. Children can dress in their “Sunday Best” for the program. Girls can wear dresses and boys a collared shirt. (If your daughter is wearing a dress, please have her wear shorts under it.) After the program, we will remain in the gym for refreshments. If you are able to send in juice boxes or bottled water to go along with the cake that we ordered, please let me know.
Issues with loading powerpoints. Have students use solpass and IXL for practice sessions. Will repost tomorrow.
Our Math SOL test is on Thursday of this week. We are reviewing the following ppt’s that consist of released questions supplied by the State. Students do not have to print them, but must show proof paper to verify they have completed them. Continue to use solpass and IXL to create practice in specific areas. I will send the ppt’s in the email to parents that follows.
Science will be next Wednesday. We are continuing the review in class, but are spending most of our time on Math until we test. Continue to drill nightly.
Thanks for all you do at home to help your child at school.

Dear Parents and Guardians,
This is the LAST week that there will be spelling words and homework!!! I know you are all jumping for joy!!!
Our annual Field Day is on June 7. Each grade level has been assigned a color to wear. We will be wearing YELLOW t-shirts. IF you have a t-shirt that is primarily yellow but has graphics that will be fine. If you want to purchase a yellow shirt, Michaels has them for $3.33 online on sale from $3.99. The North Suffolk Walmart had v neck yellow shirts in the boys’ dept. for $3.47. I do have a FEW yellow shirts I’ve collected over the years to loan for that day if necessary. Please let me know if you will need to “borrow” one from me. Please send the note for your student’s lunch plans for that day as well as your volunteer form if you plan on helping.
We will work on the following skills in Reading this week:
• Ask and answer questions
• Prefixes mid-, mis
In Science this week, the students will continue learning about plants and their products.
This week in Math the students will learn about geometrical shapes, both plain and solid. We will also continue to work on 2-digit addition and subtraction. This is a very difficult skill for 2nd graders so any extra help that you can provide at home would be greatly appreciated!
In Social Studies this week we will wrap up the unit on the 3 First American Groups with a test on Friday. I will send the study guide home on Monday.
