This Week

Mr. Schieber’s Class

November 12 – 16, 2018

Wow, it is hard to believe we are already a quarter of the way through Second Grade! It was wonderful to get to see all the families at conferences and get a chance to share all the great things we are up to in room 110.

We had a busy 4 days this week. We worked hard doing our practice COGAT test Monday and testing for 3 long days after the Student Holiday/Election Day Tuesday.  We will be catching up next week on some of the lessons we didn’t get to during testing, and the schedule for assessments will be light.

We are starting our unit on Map Skills in Social Studies this week. We will be focusing on United States geography for this unit. You may want to start reviewing the seven continents and the five oceans now, but please note some of the World Geography concepts we cover later in the year are on this study guide and are not taught at this time.

I was so impressed with our display containing the names of Stinger Family Veterans; thank you to those who served our country.  Please remember to have your student wear red, white, and blue on Monday (11/12) to honor those who served. We will have our rescheduled Veteran’s Day Assembly Monday.

What we are learning:

  • Math
    • Read, write, and identify 3 digit place value numbers
  • Social Studies
    • United States Geography
  • Reading
    • Story Elements – Tracking character feelings and retelling a story
  • Writing
    • Synonyms and Antonyms

I hope that you have received the amazing brochures and stickers that came home in your children’s backpack this week!!! I was so impressed!!! Please go online to order any keepsakes you want by the deadline next Friday,  November 16th.  All the ordering information is printed on the brochure. Feel free to contact me with questions!  Thanks to the many families who have already ordered,  I know you are going to love these one of a kind treasures!  All money raised will benefit your child directly in the SPES Art program!

  • Any changes to transportation need to come to school in a written note. Changes will not be accepted over the phone or by email. Encourage your child to give me these notes in the morning.
  • Send in a snack and water (optional). We are a nut free classroom. We discussed having nutritional snacks so make sure to talk about this with your child. Please do not send snacks with nut/peanuts.
  • Send a lunch or provide your child with money or add money to their account to purchase lunch. We are working hard to memorize our lunch numbers.
  • Discuss with your child, your expectations of them for each school day. Together we can encourage them to be successful.
