I hope this email finds you well. As you know, we are going to be on an extended spring break starting Monday, the 16th. The second grade team will not be sending home additional school work that is required while we are away. We do have options for you and your family to practice over the next two weeks though:
-Reading for at least 20 minutes a day. Many additional resources have been added to our "reading comprehension class" link on our website.
-Practice our 2nd grade red words and green patterns. All red words and previously taught green patterns are on our "OG and red word class" link.
-We are sending home our 2A math workbook. (The front office will have your child's workbook on Monday if they were not at school today). Take a little bit of time each day to work through and review what the students already know. Many additional resources have been added to our "math class" link on our website.
-Practice telling time with an analog clock.
-Practice counting money with bills and coins.
-Utilize your child's Freckle and/or Prodigy accounts.
-We also use Pebblego.com at school. It is a great website to practice reading and research.
-The district also sent out a link to tons of online resources. Take some time to work through those.
Please check your email for communication from PRA Administration going forward.
Thank you for your flexibility. We hope your family time is safe and relaxing!
