Now that we are deep into the winter season, we are unable to go outside frequently due to outdoor temperatures that are too cold, rain, or too much snow on the ground. With that said, we are often playing indoors, so if you have any new or gently used games you no longer use and would like to donate to the classroom, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
Basic Math Facts:
If your child has not yet mastered basic math facts to 12, please be sure to support him or her at home with flash cards, manipulatives, and/or basic counting games. As we continue to teach more challenging math objectives in second grade these basic fundamentals will be necessary for success with computational fluency and accuracy.
Cold and Flu Season!
It is that time of year! Plesae see the attached letter regarding the flu and it's symptoms from Nurse Miller!
RAZ Kids is a free online leveled student reading program with interactive eBooks and reading quizzes which students may access online or through a mobile app. This incredible resource provides our second grade students the opportunity to access hundreds of books within a uniquely leveled individual library on their level. As the year progresses, I will adjust Raz Kids reading levels as needed to ensure students are accessing books they can read independently. This is a great way to make reading fun at home. It can count towards their 20 minutes of nightly reading. Just write in the title of the book in their agenda. Go to www.kidsa-z.com, click on kids login, type in awytovich0, and your child’s name. Next, your child will type in their password to gain access to a multitude of leveled books to read.
