Valentines Day Party
We will have a Valentines Day Party on Friday, Feb. 12. I am sending home a class list this week in the Friday Folder. If you choose to send in Valentines for the party, please make sure you include 22. Thanks!
Our school is having a Box Tops Blitz to see which classroom can bring in the most Box Tops by Wednesday, Feb. 24. Some Box Tops have already come in, but let’s get some more! Let’s see if we can be the top class in 2nd grade! We could win an ICE CREAM PARTY!
We have finished up our unit on telling time in math. This is another important skill we learn in second grade that can take some time to master. Please continue practicing telling time with your student as much as possible.
Another important math skill to learn in second grade is addition and subtraction math facts. We regularly practice math facts in class using a program called Xtra Math, but many students could use more practice. You can practice addition and subtraction facts at home by using flash cards (you can get some from Wal-Mart). You can also use websites and apps for fact practice, too. If you want to print out some math fact pages, I recommend
Mathfactcafe.com This website has lots of choices for pages you can print.
