Dear Parents and Guardians,
Another busy week is in store for us in second grade. We will take PALS and MAP tests this week. Next week is also a busy one for us. Our spring program is on Tuesday, May 5, at King’s Fork High School. Your student needs to be there at 6:00Pm dressed in a solid white shirt and blue jeans. Then Friday, May 8th is our Field Day. The Second graders need to wear yellow shirts that day.
Please check with your child to see that they have pencils, paper, glue sticks, and crayons. Many of the students are missing these on a daily basis. My supplies that I bought this summer are almost gone now.
Please have your child read TO you every night. They can check out books on Wednesday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can go before school. Becoming a better reader is like playing a sport. The more you practice the better you get.
In reading this 9 weeks, we are working on the following skills:
Use short, long, and r-controlled vowel patterns to decode and spell words.
Use vocabulary from other content areas
Use online resources
Read nonfiction texts
In Math this week we will begin working with money. This week in science, we will continue studying plants and their uses. In Social Studies we will continue our economics unit learning about the 3 types of resources. (human, capital, and natural)
Thank you for all of your support.
