Your child will learn more responsibility in my class particularly from using their BEE Binder. You can find more info on BEE binders at the navigation link to the left.
Some important information regarding core subjects:
Weekly pre-tests on Mondays. If they pass they get a new ‘Challenge list’ to take on Friday. Otherwise Friday they retake the regular list.
Our district has adopted a new math program 08-09. It’s called McGraw – Hill. We will be using workbook pages instead of the nightly Saxon pages.
I faithfully have reading groups 4-5 days a week. Expect for your child to bring a nightly reading book at their reading level each night in the BEE Binder.
Writing is a BIG part of 2nd grade. There are many writing standards for your child to meet. We have Writer’s Workshop in our class and a chance for your child to read what they published in our Author’s Chair.
