Classroom Information Agendas Homework Daily Transportation Indian Readers Technology Behavior Plan Rewards Grading Agendas/Homework Your child will have weekly homework packets. In addition to the homework packets, encourage your child to read nightly and review addition and subtraction. Further, be sure to sign your child’s agenda nightly! Daily Transportation Continue doing a great job of notifying me if your child has transportation changes. Please send in a note, write in your child’s agenda, or call the office with a transportation update/change.
Classroom Information Indian Readers The students will receive many opportunities each week to earn Indian Reader points. Each student has an individual goal based on the STAR reading assessment that was conducted. You will be updated throughout each nine weeks on your child’s progress. The students may take AR quizzes and choose an activity from the monthly reading choice board in order to reach quarter goals. Technology Technology plays a key role in our classroom. We will use several programs that integrate technology. The students will use SuccessMaker this year for extra practice in reading and math.

Second Grade Curriculum Language Arts/Writing Reading Math Science Social Studies Language Arts/Writing We will be using the Scott Foresman Reading Series for reading and grammar this year. I will supplement many activities to enrich the materials. The students will become strong writers and work on sentence skills and create paragraph writing entries with a strong opening, body, and closing. The students will apply spelling, grammar, and the writing process skills in the following styles of writing: narratives, expository (informational), persuasive, and response to literature. The students will keep a weekly journal where they will write a response about the story of the week. This will be a part of a guided writing group where the students will receive small group writing instruction. I am eager to see how much your child will progress in his or her writing throughout the year!
Second Grade Curriculum Reading In reading, we will be using a combination of reading materials. We will use the Scott Foresman Reading Series, level readers, and chapter books. The first 20 minutes of reading will be whole group instruction where the students will be learning about the reading skill, vocabulary, and phonics. During the last hour, the students are involved in literacy/writing centers. Students will rotate through 3 centers.
