Welcome to our Grade 2 class! I invite you all to the Back to School Night and BBQ Monday, August 8th at 5:00 p.m. You will be able to visit our class and have an opportunity to see what we do in Grade 2. Parent communication is a priority, through email, text, Grade 2 Blog on the Carden of Tucson website, and parent letters. My email address is hnichols@cardenoftucson. I need all parents to complete the email and phone number information and return promptly. We plan on having a successful learning experience for the 2016-2017 school year and your support is needed.
A few things to know:
I attached an overall Math concepts for 1st Quarter.
Spelling lessons are given on Monday, and Wednesday. Tests are Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Tutoring starts on August 9, Tuesday at 3:15 – 3:45 pm.
The Student Supply Boxes will be going home the Friday. I did keep the most important items for your child.
Attached is an application for a library card, please return Monday, August 1st. We will be using the library card to access a the website for research.
0ur class will be focusing on Math, Spelling, Reading, Language, Comprehension, Vocabulary, Penmanship, Social Studies, Science, and Art.
Several times during the week we will experience a 10 minute stretch and relaxation technique. Our goal is to create a healthy environment physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially, through breathing and stretching exercises. Each student needs a towel or mat, that will be kept at school.
I do not promote candy, or unhealthy treats. The fruits, veggies, and popcorn/chips or unprocessed snacks are always welcome. No candy please.
The 100% Spelling Tests will receive a prize from the prize box.
I do my best to not give Homework on weekends. However, there will be an at Home Project: Tree Report, and a Bird Report. Tree Report will be due towards the end of Second Quarter, Bird Report is towards the end of Third Quarter.
We could always use prizes for the prize box, and paper plates for their lunches.
