Welcome to 2nd Grade!
I am so excited to start this school year! In second grade, your child will gain more independence and begin to take on more responsibilities. Your child will actively pursue a variety of learning experiences that require your support and encouragement at home. I am looking forward to having your child in my class.
The first few weeks of school will be dedicated to establishing routines in our classroom. It is important to create an atmosphere of respect, cooperation and accountability. The end result is a greater gain in academic achievement. We will discuss our responsibilities to ourselves and as members of our class and school community.
*Remember to always check your child’s homework and supply bag each school night. They are to have 3 sharpened pencils, an eraser, glue stick, dry erase marker (preferably fine point), scissors, and crayons each day.
Memorizing addition and subtraction math facts are EXTREMELY important this year. If your child is fluent with their math facts, math will be much easier and enjoyable for them. Please consider using the Xtra Math website at home to practice. The class uses it each each day for 5 minutes of daily math drills. Each student was sent home a paper with how to register. Please ask me if you need this information again. http://xtramath.org
