Second grade is an important year for strengthening reading skills learned in first grade. I recommend spending 20 minutes a day reading with your child. Each child may check out two AR books from the library. These books are at the student’s reading level. They may take one book home each night. It is very important that the book is returned to school each day.
Please check your child’s Homework Folder each night for homework. There is usually a daily math homework paper. This needs to be completed and returned the next day. If a student does not return the homework, they will miss recess to complete it.
Also, students will have one reading homework paper a week. This needs to turned in by Friday. Also, they will be bringing home spelling words on Mondays to study for the test on Fridays.
My discipline plan is a simple system of flipping cards. 1. Warning 2. Five minutes of recess 3. Call home/No recess. I appreciate your support in dealing with these matters.
Please feel free to call me at school 587-2575, if you have any concerns. I’m available before/after school. You can leave me a message, and I’ll call you back. The link to my email is on the contact page.
I look forward to a great year with your children!
