Newsletter week of 1-14-19

Posted by: Cynthia Martie | January 13, 2019 | No Comment |

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are very excited that our class has been given our own set of Chromebooks. Each student has been assigned their own device. This brings me to a strange request. If you have any extra computer “mice” that you are not using, please consider donating them to our classroom. Some students feel more confident when taking a test using a mouse rather than the mouse pad, especially when they have to “drag and drop” an answer.

Please note that we are collecting Boxtops for Education. You can send them in with your student to give to me.

After the end of the first semester, I will no longer be able to read the science and social studies benchmark tests to the students. Below is a link to our science book online with log in instructions. Click on the Grade 2 with audio book (A little microphone is on it.) and the site will read the selection aloud to your student as he/she reads to themselves.

We will work on the following skills in Reading this week:
• Beginning, middle, and end in fiction
• Vowel Patterns i, ie, igh, y

In Science this week, we will continue the unit on Seasonal Changes. This includes learning about how animals adapt to protect themselves in the different seasons and how the land is affected by weather.

This week in Math the students will begin learning about fractions. Some students are still struggling with adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers with “carrying” and “borrowing”. 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 learn about Martin Luther King, Jr., and why we have a day to honor him.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Cindy Martie
