September 8, 2015
It’s hard to believe that September is here already. We continue to practice routines and following directions in 2nd grade to make our days flow smoothly. Last week we were treated to a musical production from a quartet from Philadelphia as part of the Angel Fire Music program. Students were introduced to string instruments and entertained. On Friday we had reading buddies with our 6th grade friends. We do this every other Friday. We also made our first trip to the library. Students were allowed to sign out 1 book. They will eventually be able to sign out 2 books – once they prove they can return their books in good condition and in a timely manner. Library is every other Friday (full day Fridays) but students can return their books at any time prior to that.
Homework for the week is as follows: Reading log – attached and is due back on Monday, September 14th. Both spelling and grammar homework are due on Thursday, September 10th. A spelling list of this week’s sight words is attached. Students should complete the alphabetizing activity. In addition, they should write each spelling word three times each. Then choose 3 of the spelling words and write a complete sentence for those 3 chosen words (for a total of 3 sentences). There is also a grammar packet on nouns that should be completed by Thursday as well.
In addition, I have attached a math fact practice sheet (double sided) and three sheets on reviewing telling time (2 of which are also double sided). Students do not need to start this until Thursday and it is due back on Monday, September 14th. Students can begin it right away if they choose, as this is all review, but it does not have to be started before Thursday.
Reminder………..Back to School night is scheduled for Wednesday, September 16th from 5:00-7:00. I look forward to meeting new folks and seeing the rest of you.
