Happy Monday! I hope you had a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend. I know I sure did! :)
We will begin homework this week so I wanted to explain how we do this in second grade. In your child's folder there will be a reading passage, math page and the spelling menu (as well as the list of words). Today I am attaching the proposed schedule of when things can be completed. If you choose to do math on Monday and spelling on Wednesday, totally fine! As long as it is all completed by Friday. We will begin spelling with WEEK 2 due to the hurricane.
Turn in homework folder on FRIDAY. Please include spelling, reading, and writing in your folder. Please read 20 minutes every night and log your reading in your reading log.
Monday/Spelling- Complete one menu item for spelling homework. Please initial the square once completed. Your spelling words are on your teacher’s Edlio website.
Tuesday/Reading- Complete the reading passage and questions.
Wednesday/Math- Complete math page.
Thursday/Writing/Science/Social Studies- Answer the weekly question on your teacher’s Edlio website.
All homework is due on Fridays. Students will earn a sticker each week on their conduct card. If they complete all homework for the 9 weeks, they will earn $20 cougar bucks. Please see the homework page for the homework.
Open House has been rescheduled for September 21 from 5:00-7:00. Please see the email sent today for more details. There will also be a flyer in Wednesday folders this week.
