Mrs. Martie’s Newsletter, 9-11-17

Posted by: Cynthia Martie | September 10, 2017 | No Comment |


Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have had a successful first week of 2nd grade. The students have done a great job of learning the rules and procedures and I am looking forward to beginning our normal routine this week.

This week the students will begin to have homework.  They will have homework Monday- Thursday unless otherwise noted. Important things to know about homework are:

  • The homework sheet for the week, along with the spelling words, will be glued in your child,s agenda on Mondays.Â
  • Please make sure your child reads 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.
  • The spelling words are part of the reading skills for that week so please check that they are doing one menu item nightly and returning the assignment to school every day.
  •  I will send home a reading passage that your child needs to read to you nightly. There is 1 questions to answer per day. Please sign and return these to me on Friday.

We will work on the following skills in Reading this nine weeks:

  • Use consonants, consonant blends, and consonant digraphs to decode words.
  • Use knowledge of short, long, and r-controlled vowel patterns to decode and spell words.
  • Use information in the story to read words.
  • Use knowledge of sentence structure.
  • Use knowledge of story structure and sequence.
  • Reread and self-correct
  • Use vocabulary from other content areas.
  • Ask and answer questions about what is read in fiction and nonfiction.
  • Locate information to answer questions.
  • Describe characters, setting, and important events in fiction and poetry.
  • Identify main idea in fiction and nonfiction.
  • Summarize stories and events with beginning middle, and end in the correct sequence.
  • Draw conclusions based on text.

In Science this week, we will practice the Scientific Method and learn about tools that scientists use.   This week in Math the students will work on ordinal numbers, and in Social Studies the studies will explore what makes a good citizen.

As you can see, we have a busy first nine weeks ahead of us, especially in Reading.  I am looking forward to working with all of you this year and I want to thank you in advance for sharing your student with me.
