STUDENTS IN MS.BAKER'S ROOM WILL NEED THEIR PUMPKINS FOR SCIENCE CLASS THE WEEK OF OCT. 7-11 SINCE THEY WILL START THEIR EXPERIMENT ON OCT. 14, AND STUDENTS IN MS. EDWARDS' CLASS WILL NEED THEIRS THE WEEK OF OCT. 14-18 SINCE THEY WILL START THEIR EXPERIMENT ON OCT. 21.

Monday: Students continued to work on adding two digit numbers with regrouping.  They have been doing this for over a week, so they did a worksheet as a grade in class.  They were then guided through how to complete solving problems on plain paper.  Once this was done, students were introduced to adding three, two-digit numbers without regrouping.  They were then given chromebooks to complete online problems on addition with regrouping. 

​Tuesday: ​Students completed an entrance exam on remembering how to add together three, two-digit numbers (not a grade, just to see how well they remember from the previous lesson).  Students then completed a quiz on what they need to expect when they take a benchmark test at the end of the year (we will take these randomly to prepare them for what to expect).  

​Wednesday:​ Students were given a worksheet packet that contained a review of what they already know (this is going to be a grade in the grade book for the second nine weeks).  If students finished the packet, they were given a chromebook to complete math problem games. 

​Thursday: ​​Students completed a two-digit subtraction without regrouping worksheet.  They were then required to color in the blocks to the even answer differences (this led them on a path through a maze to reach the finish line, and helped students in subtraction and odd/even facts).

Please note that I do NOT send homework home with students the first semester (Aug-Dec) of school.  This is a time to structure and help students grow in knowledge from what they learned in first grade.  Grades come from in-class worksheets (given once new material has been mastered), participation, and tests.  We will do all work in class, as I will teach and instruct students on how to do the work, then use various manipulatives to see how well they are progressing and what they need to spend more time on.  If your child is struggling, and you make the request, I will be more than willing to send you some additional work home to help them progress in 2nd grade. 
 

Your child WILL be bringing study guides home the week of the unit test.  This WILL need to be reviewed as it will help them make a better grade. 

ALL graded papers will be sent home on FRIDAYS. If I happen to miss a Friday, or we are out of school on a Friday, then graded papers will come home the following Friday.
