Weekly Reminders 1-11-19

Dear Families,

We have had another productive week. The students have been excited to use their new computers this week. We use these computers in both reading and math stations daily. As the year progresses the students will learn more ways to use their new machines.

Parent conferences are scheduled for the afternoon of February 7th. I will be using an online sign up like last time. Please use the following link to sign up for your child’s conference today. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0548aaab2ea4f58-smith 

I can’t wait to share your child’s progress with each of you. The children have grown in many ways both socially and academically since the beginning of school.

I am sending home the weekly homework today instead of Monday in case we do not have school on Monday due to snow. This will allow your child to stay ahead of their homework. Thanks for making sure that your child has his or her homework in each week.

WE ARE LEARNING ABOUT:

Reading: We will be reading fiction and nonfiction texts.  Students will use text and features of a book to help with understanding and comprehension. Students will ask and answer questions using the text for support.  The students will ask and answer questions about what is read to demonstrate understanding (e.g., who, what, when, where, why, and how.) We will also be reviewing antonyms and synonyms as well.

Writing: The students will be learning to write in cursive beginning next week. We will learn how to form the individual letters first and then progress to writing words in cursive. The students will also learn to write their names in cursive. I am sure that they will be excited to learn how to write in cursive. We will also be reviewing how to write a friendly letter. The students will write a letter to their teacher using their new computers.

Spelling: We will have a new spelling list on Monday. The new words will be listed on the left side of the homework packet. The new words are: us, ate, around, fly,right, bright, sigh, high, sign, and blind. 

Math: The students will continue to learn to add and subtract two digit numbers with and without regrouping. We will begin with double digit addition.  A great way to help your child with double digit addition and subtraction is to review basic math facts. If your child needs some extra practice with double digit addition and subtraction, check out the following websites: https://www.ixl.com/math/grade-2/add-two-two-digit-numbers-without-regrouping

https://www.ixl.com/math/grade-2/add-two-two-digit-numbers-with-regrouping

Students can also access Mobymax at home to review fact fluency in math. Students may log in to Mobymax using Clever and their Henrico County user names and passwords that they use at school each day.

Science: We took a science quiz on seasonal changes yesterday. These graded quizzes are in your child’s daily folder today. Please be sure and check out their grades. Thanks for helping them to prepare for this quiz.

Social Studies: Next week, we will begin a unit on American Indians.  The student will locate and describe the relationship between the environment and culture of
a) the Powhatan of the Eastern Woodlands Region of the United States;
b) the Lakota (also known as Dakota) of the Plains Region of the United States; and
c) the Pueblo Indians of the Southwest Region of the United States. This unit is always a favorite of the students. 

Please read this important message from Mrs. Rhoden.

Parent referrals for gifted identification will be accepted beginning January 3 to January 18, 2019.  As you consider your decision to refer your child, please be sure to speak with his/her teacher to discuss any gifted qualities being observed in the classroom on a consistent basis.  Referrals should be submitted in writing (email is acceptable) to Jennifer Rhoden at jmrhoden1@henrico.k12.va.us during these designated dates.  No referrals will be accepted after January 18.  Subject line of email should state Gifted Referral, and the email should include student’s first and last name, grade level, teacher, and area of referral (English, Math or Both areas).  An email confirmation will be sent within 48 hours.  If you do not receive an email confirmation, please call the school.

We were able to read with our kindergarten reading buddies today. Please enjoy these pictures.

 

 

Warm regards,

Dear Families,

I hope everyone was able to have fun in the snow over the past few days. I am sure that they students enjoyed being off from school. I was glad to welcome them all back yesterday. Since we did have the snow days, we have made some changes to our schedule for next week. We will not have a spelling test next week. We have decided as a grade level that we will wait until we return from winter break to introduce the new spelling words to the students. We will use next week to review words from our word wall. Also, we will not be sending out a new homework packet on Monday. Please use this extra time to listen to your child read each night or practice their basic addition and subtraction facts.

Reading: We will continue to read non-fiction literature during the upcoming week. Since we are focusing on animals habitats and adaptations, we will be reading books that focus on these two topics. As we are reading about these topics, the students will use text features to identify the main idea. We have also been learning to identify synonyms and antonyms. If your child needs extra practice with antonyms and synonyms, check out the following links: https://www.ixl.com/ela/grade-2/choose-the-synonym

https://www.ixl.com/ela/grade-2/choose-the-antonym

In science, the students have been researching animals and their habitats. They will use this research to write an informative paragraph about an animal that they enjoyed learning about. The students will also have the opportunity to share their paragraphs with their classmates.

We will have new spelling words after our winter break.  Here are the words for January: New, blue, glue, chew, flew, been, sleep, their, wish, him

Math: The students are continuing to work with 3-digit numbers. We are comparing, rounding, and ordering 3-digit numbers. The students will also begin to add and subtract 2-digit numbers with and without regrouping. A great way to help your child with double digit addition and subtraction is to help them learn or memorize their basic math facts. Students can use flashcards to help them learn their facts. Here are some websites that might help them as well: http://www.abcya.com/math_facts_game.htm
