Every second grader will have a take home folder that will be sent home every night and returned to school the following day. There will be a reading log to fill out, sight words to practice, and small writing or math activity to complete each night.
Reading Challenge: I suggest each child read 20 minutes every night. They should be reading to themselves, or even better, to you, so you can assist them with words they don’t know. Students will have the opportunity to log in weekly reading minutes and at the end of each month color in their total minutes on our classroom chart.
Read Alouds: Each week students will get to bring home a picture book from our classroom library. In each book I will provide a list of engaging discussion prompts and comprehension questions for parents to ask while they are reading the book with their child. Students will use our writing center time to review and illustrate the book(s) they are reading at home.
Family Projects: This year I am continuing the tradition of "Monthly Family Projects"! Information will be sent home at the beginning of each month and displayed throughout our classroom once completed.
