Welcome
to Ms.Wrin's 2nd Grade!

Please look through my other tabs for more information.

Week of 10/14 - 10/18

Good afternoon parents and guardians! 
I want to thank you all again for coming in for conferences. I know its not easy taking time out of your day to do so, so please know that I really appreciate your dedication to your students learning. 
Please continue to work on our spelling words next week. We did not have a lot of time to practice them in class this week because of the half days so please make sure that your child is practicing their words at home. 
I will be beginning tutoring this week. Our class tutoring day will be Tuesday after school. I will have tutoring
 from 3:30 - 4:00. If you are interested in tutoring please let me know and I will be happy to create a schedule. If your child goes to after school this will be an easy way for your child to receive tutoring.
As promised I have attached a PDF with the login information to use Xtramath at home. All you have to do is find your students name and follow their directions. If you have any questions please let me know!
I have also attached the mclass question stems in this email. You can also find it under the useful links tab. Remember to use questions based on your child's reading level (this can be found on your conference form, they will be sent home this week!)
The fall festival will be taking place on October 18th. There will be tons and tons of activiites, face painting and there will be a movie showing at 7:30 (The Nghtmare before Christmas)
I have signed up our class for Witch Putt Putt. We will need one parent to work each time slot. If you would
like to cover a time (one is from 5:00-6:00, another is 6:00-7:00 and the last is 7:00-8:00. If you would like to volunteer please let me know! I will also be there helping out with the parents.
School Supply Drive for Outer Banks Schools
10/10/2019
Last month, flooding and winds from Hurricane Dorian caused significant damage to several schools on the Outer Banks. We are collecting school supplies and monetary donations to help our neighbors to the east. Donated items will be delivered on Wednesday, October 23, to the Frisco Fire Department. Please send your donations to your child's teacher.
In the classroom we still need:

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.
