Savannah Elementary Second Grade
It is very important that you look at your child’s binder on a daily basis. Be sure to sign your child’s conduct communication and reading log on a daily basis. Binders Binders may contain the following items: weekly newsletter conduct communication calendar classroom rules homework assignments parent/teacher communication reading log spelling list guided reading baggie/folder
In order to accommodate busy schedules we will send home homework each Monday. Typically this consists of math and spelling. Homework will be due on Friday of that week. This is in addition to reading (guided reading book). Your child must read for at least 15-20 minutes each night. Sign their reading log in order for them to get credit. If they do not read, they will change their color for the day and read during recess. It is important for them to return their guided reading books daily, because these books will be used during their guided reading lesson for the day. Homework
Students may get no more than 1 yellow and 3 blues in a six weeks period to be gatorrific. Being prepared by bringing all materials, books, binder, and homework is an expectation and will be a color change if not followed. Gatorrific Kids
CHAMPS C conversation level H how do I get help A activity M movement P participation S success! Champs is a proactive and positive approach to classroom management. The focus is on prevention and teaching expectations to students. We will teach students how to behave responsibly in each major activity and transition. When students are meeting CHAMPS expectations, we let them know that they are doing a good job by praising them and occasionally letting the class choose a special game or activity. When a student misbehaves, we try to correct the mistake by telling the student that behavior is unacceptable. We then give the student a chance to do it the right way. If the misbehavior continues, we may impose a color change.
Each day, please send a healthy snack for your child to eat. No Candy!! Your child will have plenty of opportunities to drink water throughout the day. Snacks
Toys We need an environment that is conducive to learning. Please leave all toys, games, dolls, electronics, and other novelties at home. Balls to use on the playground at recess only are allowed
We encourage parents to volunteer for a variety of things at Savannah. Each parent who volunteers (helping in the classrooms, going on field trips, etc) must complete a criminal history check. Please inform your child’s teacher if you need this form. You may find information about joining our PTA on our school website. Volunteers
