Dear Second Grade Families:
Thank you to all of the families that came in for conferences. It’s always great speaking with you about your child’s progress!
We are back to a normal week, and therefore we will have a spelling test on Friday. We will also have a Chapter 2, Science Test on Animals on Thursday.
Thank you to all of the families that are helping their children review their math facts, flash cards from 1-10, both addition and subtraction. Please also incorporate the IXL math program at home. This is presently helping as we group and regroup two and three digit math facts. This will also prove to be a benefit when we move into multiplication and division soon as well. Please also keep reviewing time and money with reading and writing practice. Thank you for your support!
