First week of school (Aug. 12-Aug 16): Students are completing worksheets on 1st grade Math to show how much they know coming in to second grade.  This includes: number sense, ordinal numbers, patterns, place value, one-digit addition, one-digit subtraction, equality, measurement, estimation, time, geometry, money, graphing, fractions, and calendars.  

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 work from the previous week will be sent home on Fridays the following week (for example: the first week of schools classwork will be graded and sent home with students on Friday 8/16/2019, the week of 8/13-8/16 will be sent home Friday 8/23/2019).
