Week 2- August 19-23
Our first full week has come to an end and it was a good (but exhausting) one.
We are practicing our daily routines to help students become more independent with their learning and their choices so I can begin working with students in small groups.
Thank you to those of you that made it to Back to School night. It was nice to meet you and be able to talk about the upcoming year your child will experience in 2nd grade. For those of you that were unable to come I have posted my presentation on this website and will send home a paper copy in the Thursday folder next week.
A note from our technology teacher:
Hello Wonderful Parents!
This is Ms. Cutshall, the elementary technology teacher. I'd love for you all to follow what we're up to in tech by subscribing to my website. You can do that by clicking here and then finding your child's grade and clicking subscribe.
Or here are specific directions if the link isn't working: prospectridgeacademy.org > About > Staff Directory > Christie Cutshall > find the grade your child is in > Subscribe.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you so much!
Things we will be learning next week in 2nd grade:
Math- continuing with our number sense unit. We took a little break for iReady and we need some time to work on using math tools (white boards and markers) appropriately.
Daily 5/OG- Buidling stamina with read to self, reading with a partner the right way, and -ed (pronounced id). Red words are there and were.
Social Studies- We are continuing with our geography unit and will move from macro (the world) to micro (local community). The students will take a "show me what you know" on Friday.
Science- Continuing with our magnets unit to explore magnets outside.
Planners will start coming home next week so be on the lookout and the homework log will start on Thursday. Students will receive a copy and I will have one posted both on my page and the math class page.
