(mostly.....) Everything You Need To Know About Second Grade
✐ Students will have a red communication folder that will come home with 2 sections; “Keep At Home” and “Return To School”. Please check this folder every day! The newsletter for that week should remain in the front pocket of the folder for that week. Any money, notes, or changes in schedules should be sent in their red communication folders.
✐ I am requiring reading and math homework to be completed each night (Monday - Thursday). This homework will be the same each night. If something changes with homework, I will let you know. This homework is intended to be practice of skills necessary to be successful in class.
Reading - read 15 minutes each night
Please write the title of the book(s) your child reads on the homework sheet for each day. If he/she is reading a chapter book,write the title on the day it is started then list the chapters each night.
Math - A baggie containing a deck of playing cards and a packet of math games to play using the cards will be sent home with each student.
The students need to “play” at least one game each night. He/She will need another person to play with him/her, so a family member or friend needs to take a little time to play a math game each night. These games are not intended to be lengthy but they will help the students practice math skills they have been learning in class. After the student has played the game, please complete the homework sheet with the name of the game you played. If you play an extra game, you can write both games on the sheet. Please initial the sheet for each night you did homework.
Homework is NOT graded; however, the students will receive credit for completing homework each week. Online math games may also be “played” as a way for the students to practice their math skills.
