Welcome
to Ms.Wrin's 2nd Grade!

Please look through my other tabs for more information.

Week of 11/18 - 11/22

Happy Friday yall!
It felt like such a quick week at school!
I want to thank you all again for showing up to the field trip on Tuesday and making it the most of it, even in the pouring rain. I know most of us couldn't feel our toes by the end, but I know the kids appreciated you all being there. 
Progress reports are being sent home today, please sign it and send it back with your child on Monday. 
Bowling will be next week on Thursday, 11/21 we will go during the day and then come back to school.
If your child wants a homecoming t-shirt it is $15, please fill out the form and send it back with the money in a baggie with your child's name on it. It is not required! The last day to order is November 26.
We had a spelling test today on our words. They will be getting new words on Monday to send home. I know these past two weeks have been crazy and busy but please practice these words with your child at home. It is extremely important that they are learning the sounds an applying them to the words. I can really see the difference when I know that a student is practicing their words at home during the week. I can send home more activities next week if you want to use those at home! I can always find materials for your student if you want to work on anything with them one on one. Just let me know how I can help.
Homework will be sent home as well on Monday. It will be due on Friday. I would really appreciate if parents could quickly glance over their work before they turn it in. It seems like a lot of the class is just rushing through it to get it done without putting in any effort. They should not be receiving 40% and 50% on their homework.  
I sent home a lot of their work today that has accumulated from this year. I will try to send their work home each week on Fridays so that it doesn't become overwhelming! 
We will be switching over to Science next week and we are going to start talking about sound.
We will continue practicing adding and subtracting two digit and three digit numbers next week and have a quiz on Wednesday to see what more we need to work on before our end of Module test. 

Tutoring (reading) will continue next week on Tuesday from 3:00-3:30 please arrive by 3:30 to pick your student up from tutoring.
November birthday celebrations will be held Friday, November 22nd


 

 


 

 


Reminder about homework: I have some homework coming in incomplete or not done at all. If you could please check in with your student to ensure they have put their best effort into the homework each week. Homework will be sent home Monday and will be due Friday the 18th!

 


Words their Way is a literacy instruction tool that will help students learn different word patterns to help them not only sound out words but also spell different words with that same pattern. (For example, long vowels, short vowels or vowel teams). There are three different groups of students who will be working on different spelling lists throughout the week based on what they will need more help with thus far. At the beginning of the week I will send home their spelling list with a list of activities that they can work on throughout the week to help them recognize these spelling patterns more readily. Please recognize that even though they have spelling lists I do want them to focus on memorizing how to spell the words but more on what the spelling patterns are so that they can apply those patterns to different words with similar patterns. This is also new to me so I will be learning alongside you and your child. They will have a small quiz each Friday on words with similar spelling patterns to see how much they have grown during the week. (These words will not be the same as their spelling lists but they will have the same spelling patterns that we worked on that week.) 

I will send home homework again on Monday. It will be due on Friday. I am still missing homework from some of the kids so if your child hasn’t done it, please bring it in on Monday.  Typically each day it is late I will take off 5 points. However since it is the first week and we are still getting in the swing of it I’m not going to take off any points, but please remind your child to bring their homework in. Next week if the homework is not brought in by Friday I will begin to take off points. They have all week to do the homework so there should be plenty of time to get it done.  Please let know if you have any questions about the homework. 

It is very important for your child to be reading for 20 minutes a night with a book that is appropriate reading level.

 

We will have our class birthday celebration the last Friday in September which is the 27th. We will be celebrating our August and September birthdays on this date. If your child had a birthday in one of those two months you can feel free to bring in cupcakes, juice boxes, cookies, fruit, anything you would like just please let me know before hand. Also, if you could refrain from bringing anything with Peanuts in it for the class.  We will have the celebration at 1:30.


Every day starting Monday a paper will come home in their folder letting you know how many points they earned that day. On Friday we will add them all together to see how many they earned for the whole week. You will sign it every Friday. We have discussed certain rewards (dojo coupons) they can receive for every 25 points they earn. 

 


Ice cream this year will be different than in the past. Students will only be able to get ice-cream if there is money in their account, or they bring in the money, there will be no charging for ice cream this year. We will do ice-cream as a class on Thursday afternoons. This will be during our snack times so they will not need an additional snack on Thursdays. Again snack is not required, it is more of a time for them to read to themselves.

If there is a change in the way that your student is being picked up PLEASE email me or send me a message on Dojo I will do my best to check both.
