Weekly Overview September 18, 2017

Happy third week of second grade!  Looking forward to a fun and productive week.

Thanks for the snacks coming in!!

$85.00 class fee is due when you can turn it in.  Thanks

Please remember that every Wednesday is Ray Spirit Day!  Your child should wear their green and white!  Also, because Wednesday and Friday are gym and health days, easy days to remember to wear green and white!

Language Arts:  This month we will be working on your child asking and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why, and how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text.  Work on at home!

Also this week we will be working on compare and contrast in a story, writing complete sentences and writing a friendly letter.  We will also be talking and learning about prediction and inferences in stories.  Ask these kinds of questions when your child is reading at home.  Thanks

Homework:  We will start using a Reading Log this week.  Your child will have this in their Homework Folder and should just always keep it in their folder.  Help you child with the routine.  They (or you) should date it, circle Home, write the Title of the book and the minutes read, and check off the Finished It! box if/when the book was finished.  I will staple about 10 sheets together, and your child will get a new Reading Log packet when this current one is completed.  Thanks for all your help in this-it is their most important homework:)!!

Math:  Lessons this week include working on our number scrolls, counting coins, number grid puzzles, equivalent names for numbers (50 +20=70, 75-5=70, etc.), working with two cards to make 100.

Homework:  The Everyday Math homework does not start until the end of Unit 1, sometime next week, so I will be sending home Math Fact Practice sheets this week.  I will send home a packet today and it is due Friday.  Thanks.

Have a wonderful week and thanks for your help in these beginning weeks!!

Sincerely, Jean Clement
