Good afternoon!  I'm sending this out today because it has just been discovered that my blog posts have not been publishing for the past 2 months.  I apologize for this!

Tomorrow is our Valentine party, I have treats and drinks covered. If anyone wants to send any game or  video to watch feel free to do so, but if not we will have things to do. 

Over the past month we have been preparing to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation by learning the 10 Commandments, sin, and how God wants us to live and rules we need to follow.  Please continue to review the commandments with your child and review the packet that was in the school folder last week to help your child prepare for the sacrament and feel comfortable talking to the priest.

I will continue to update this blog and try to catch up on all the information that did not publish over the past month so we are all on the same page. 

We will be scheduling conferences for later this month.  I will do this through email and will be s…
January 2018: Happy New Year! I know it's been awhile, but we are back on track and having fun in 2nd grade again!
I hope you all had a fun, relaxing and blessed Christmas season with your family.
We are starting to prepare for First Reconciliation by learning the Ten Commandments in Religion. We started last week and will continue this week with a Commandment Matching game that your child will bring home this week. lease practice and play this game with them. We start with the commandments to teach what is expected of us by God so we all know what a sin is and needs to be confessed to or priest in confession.
In Math we are still adding and subtracting, solving word problems and practicing addition and subtraction by counting money.
Your child will bring home a spelling lit stapled in the panner every Monday. Please practice these words with your child for the test on Friday. There are some weeks the we may not have a word list, and during those weeks we are reviewing th…

No Spelling Words

Good Morning 2nd Graders!

It's a beautiful Sunday morning and and as I sip my coffee ( ok, chug it) I'm thinking about the upcoming week so I thought I'd share my thoughts with you all.

By now, you all probably have seen the new folder that came home with your child on Friday.  This folder needs to be cleaned out and signed and returned on Monday.  I'm going to start using this to send home tests, quizes and any other papers that have been graded so that the daily folder is not so overloaded. Please take any papers out of the take home folder at the end of the week also.

The Golden Clip--These were given out on Friday if your child wrote neatly in his/her planner
AND came to school everyday with a signature.  I am working with them to print neatly so they can read what the homework is when they are at home since you are not with them at school and I can not write it for them.  If your child did not get a Golden Clip last week, they can earn it this week.  My goal is to have neat handwriting and…

Welcome to 2nd Grade!

Hello Parents!
I will update this blog each week about what we are doing in the classroom and about things we have scheduled in the near future.

Fundations- We have been reviewing over the past 2 weeks.  We will have our Unit 1 Test on Friday, September 29 and it will cover short vowel sound, consonant diagraph and blends, buddy letters, c,k,and ck words and trick words we have been learning.  If you want to review with your child the worksheets that have come home and will come home this week will be helpful.

Math-  We have been reviewing addition and subtraction equations and solving vertical equations and using math mountains to find missing addends and partners. Your child will have math homework every night,  but I always give at least 10 minutes at the end of class to get started  and many nights that is long enough to complete the homework if students use the time wisely. This homework is how I monitor student progress and if more practice is needed at school so it is very im…
