Hello 2nd Grade Families! This is your monthly October update!
We have been hard at work this past month! Here are just a few of the things child has learned about so far:
- Ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd…)
- Even and odd numbers
- The three ways to read a book
- What it means to be a good citizen
- American symbols
We will be starting small group instruction in reading and math this month.
We ask for your support at home as we start to move into our unit on place value. Place value is the foundation of much of the math your child will be learning this year. If you notice that your child is struggling at home with this concept, please visit the resources available on this blog or contact your child’s teacher.
Please continue to read at home with your child! The more your child reads, the stronger they will become!
This week we will be covering the famous Americans Christopher Columbus and Cesar Chavez in Social Studies.
Get ready for our unit on weather in Science this month!
Our Fall Book Fair is coming up! Please keep your eyes out for a flyer with more information.
If you are volunteering, remember to sign the binder in the main office to earn your Parent Honor Roll points! Many of you have been earning points already by coming to Back to School Night, Open House, and by signing your child’s Ward Log each night. Remember, parents who earn 200 points each nine weeks will be recognized on our school website, Facebook, Twitter, be featured on the Parent Board in our school, and will be listed on our grade level newsletter! Earning 600 points by May will earn you a ticket to our Parent Honor Roll Bash! (Details coming soon!)
All volunteers must attend orientation before working with students. This is a new policy that comes from Henrico County. Ward’s next orientation will be October 10th at 8am.
Our Fall Festival fundraiser will be on October 27th from 5:30-7:00 PM. Admission is free! Food trucks will be there! We will have stations (some of which will cost tickets) and your child will be able to “Trunk or Treat”! We hope to see you there! (We’ve already started to plan our theme for costumes!)
If you have any questions about the information above, please contact your child’s teacher! Keep your eye on this page for additional updates!
