Welcome to Mrs. Mistro's Class News and Notes!

Second grade will be filled with many new experiences for your child. I use this page to post current class news, important notes, and other information related to our classroom. Check here frequently during the school year to keep posted on the exciting things we will be doing!

Week of March 11 - March 22, 2019

Reading Story: Unit 3 Module A: "Theodore Roosevelt: The Adventurous President" and "Marching With Aunt Susan" - module test will be week of March 18

Reading Skills: text features, questioning

Phonics/Spelling: long a (a, ai, ay); spelling test on Friday, March 15

Grammar: capitalization, adjectives, adverbs

Writing: using text features, researching skills

Math: Unit 7: Whole Number Operations and Measurement and Data; test on Friday, March 15 or Monday, March 18 

Students should be going on Reflex Math as many days as possible per week. We try to do at least 4 days a week in the classroom, but more is better! :-)

Students are assigned an account on Khan Academy online. It is a great site to use to practice math skills and watch tutorial videos. 

Social Studies: review

Science: plants

Notes:

We are in need of extra kleenex, glue sticks, and pencils. If you are willing and able to donate any, we thank you in advance!

Please remember to sign your child's blue planner/tracker sheet every night. Purple reading/math logs should be turned in on Mondays.

I have been noticing that many students are not turning in their homework on time lately. Please remember that the reading and math logs are an assignment and are due every Monday morning.

Student journals will come home on Fridays. I'm asking that students write a note to parents each Friday about their week. Parents, please write a note back to your child. Journals should be returned the following Monday. Thank you for your support!

SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDERS: https://clubs.scholastic.com

DUE DATE: April 17, 2018. I will send home paper flyers, but I do ask that all ordering be done online under our class account. I will receive the books here at school and distribute them to your child. Our class code is MZNYB. It is certainly never required to order books, but many parents find this to be a good option to obtain resources for their children. I then use the bonus points that I receive to add to our classroom supplies. Thank you in advance for your support!
