October 9, 2017

Dear Parents and Second Graders,

I hope you are enjoying the wonder of the changing seasons. Homework this week consists of continuing the reading at home and recording the time on the reading log. Spelling words need to be written three times each. Also use all spelling words in sentences, a story, or poem. There will be a spelling test on Friday. Math pages are also included and should be returned by Friday. It has been wonderful seeing all the effort the children have been showing in their work. In math we are working on place value, fact families, and math story problems. In language arts we are working on comprehension, vocabulary and sequencing. Our spelling focus this week is adding s and es for plural words. In religion we will start a poster on the seven sacraments. We are learning about the meaning of each sacrament and the symbols associated with them. In reading we are continuing our Book Club. The students are reading to me individually, with partners, and small groups. The students met with some lovely ladies from the Academy Retirement Community for our “Read with Grandma” program. We will continue to meet with them the first Friday of each month. Picture Day is this Wednesday. Your child may wear nice clothes for the picture or they can have the picture taken in uniform clothes. Please return the enclosed form and the money to the school by Wednesday. Have a great week! Thank you for your support in working together to make this a special year for all of us.

God Bless,

Mrs. Diane Weber
