October: During the month of October, students and faculty will work together to increase our water consumption during the school day by challenging ourselves to drink 2,000L by October 31. Please send a water bottle with your child to school each day so he/she can join in and help us exceed our goal.
If your child attends after school care, please be patient as we deal with weather extremes. We do not go outside if the heat index is 95 degrees or above. In this case, we will play in the gym.
To see where in the building your child is at when you arrive for pickup.
Depending on when you arrive, your child might be on the playground, room 18, etc. As we get into the flow of the year, you'll pick up the pattern very quickly. The app will show you exactly where they are located, though.
Second Grade Overview
BIBLE: The whole school is memorizing Psalm 23. Each student will RECITE the memory work ALOUD to Mr. Kane. Our first test will be Wednesday, October 2nd. “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:1-3.
MATH: We will be learning about place value, identifying fractional parts of a whole, and problem solving by making a list.
Facts to know: Sums of 10. Have your child practice telling you all the ways to make ten.
**Tests: A Fact Assessment will be given on Wednesday, September 25th (study sums of 10). Written Assessment will be given on Thursday, September 26th (no study required).
READING: We will continue our F&F unit on Retelling.
**Please have your child study the skills (pattern statement and process questions) and vocabulary words. Use the process questions as part of your book discussions at home.
**Please have your child read for twenty minutes each night. Include time for your child to read aloud to you. Also, asking your child to RETELL their stories to you is an EXCELLENT way to improve their comprehension.
SPELLING/PHONICS: We will be working on Unit #6 in Spelling Connections.
**Test: The Spelling Test will be on Friday, September 27th.
SOCIAL STUDIES: We are studying Ancient Egypt. Information is going home regarding their Egypt Project which will be due on October 17th.

REMINDERS AND NOTES!
AR goal for the month of September is 7 points. Help your child select books within their reading zone to read for AR points. Read every day!
