Welcome to 2-1!
Dear Parents and Students,
Happy Easter and Welcome Back!
This week we will be learning about ways to protect our Earth. The class will participate in a recycling project to coincide with this theme. The children will need some assistance from home so be on the look out for a memo explaining the details of this activity.
We will have a phonics checkup on Thursday which will incorporate the syllable types of oe, oa, and ow. A spelling test will be given on Friday along with dictation sentences.
Please see the "CLASS NEWS" page for further details about our week ahead in the classroom!
It is vital that the students practice their math facts on a daily basis at home, especially since we are regrouping in the hundreds. We have begun having minute quizzes in class to build up speed and accuracy.
Now that 2017 has arrived, there are a few changes that will be made to some of our homework assignments. Instead of our Spelling Words being written two times each at the beginning of the week, they will now be written three times each. Also, our nightly reading time has increased from 15 minute sessions to 20 minutes. Please continue to work on the math fact flash cards that were given out at our conference. This nightly practice will help to increase the accuracy of our math facts.
All children should now be wearing the winter uniform. The girls are to be wearing the uniform blouse with the tie and the boys need to have on the uniform collared shirt and tie. All children are to be wearing the gym sweat pants along with the gym shirt underneath the gym sweatshirt. Shorts are not permitted to be worn again until May.
All pass codes for online access to our Math and Reading series were sent home earlier this year. Please log in with your child as soon as possible so that they can make use of this very valuable website.
Please remember to pack a healthy snack and a water bottle for snack each day. Now that the cooler weather has arrived, the children will not be keeping their water bottles at their desks but will be allowed water during snack and after recess.
Please sign all homework as well as the Green Notebook on a daily basis. All reading logs will be checked in class each Friday. The weekly spelling words will be recorded in the Green Notebook on Monday.
Please check your child's Take Home Folder each day for mail. Any notes for the office or for me need to be placed in this folder.
Please make sure to label ALL of your child's uniform apparel as well as outerwear and any other item that is brought into school.
All the best for a happy and healthy week ahead!
