     Please check your child's green take-home folder and his/her student planner agenda every day for assignments. In addition to the work found in the folder, students should be reading every day at home and practicing their addition and subtraction Math facts within 20 by using mental strategies. 

     

    Visit the library often & write many articles, stories, poems, and letters.

     

    Practice your Math facts at least 5 minutes a day or try your hand at solving a developmentally appropriate Math challenge 5 days per week.
     

    Homework is a tool to teach responsibility. It is not supposed to baffle students' brains. Written homework should take no longer than 20 minutes. Expect your child's best effort. Not perfection.

    Every night this year please read with an adult. Books, magazines (such as Highlights, Sports Illustrated for Kids, Ranger Rick, or Spider), webpages

     catalogs, board game instructions, CD or DVD liner notes, etc. Keep it fun! Feel free to take turns reading with your parent/guardian to mix it up a bit. Don't forget to pause often to enjoy illustrations, make predictions, notice patterns, ask questions, and share what the reading reminds you of...Talk or write about what you learned!J

     

     *********************************************

     

    Homework will be assigned Monday - Thursday nights. Please check the take-home folder each night. I expect that you will read every night.

    Other homework might include: 

    a math sheet, word patterns to study, or work for a special project

     

    NOTE: Expect the Math homework to be much more basic than the work we do in class each day.

    In second grade, homework is a tool to teach responsibility. It is not supposed to baffle students' brains. Written homework should take no longer than 20 minutes. Expect a strong effort. Not perfection.
