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 November 11-22, 2019

Reading Story: "Alexander Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday" and "A Chair For My Mother"

Reading Skills: story structure, using illustrations, understanding characters

Phonics/Spelling: consonant digraphs (test on Thursday, 11/14), r- controlled (ar, or, ore, oar)

Grammar: apostrophes, possessives 

Writing: narrative descriptions, new beginnings and endings, dialogue

Please practice your green sight words list. I am so proud of how the class is doing so far! Please remember that your child can turn in their "Word Master" ready-to-test form at any time, but testing will not occur on a daily basis.

Math: Unit 3 Test (test on Tuesday, 11/12), Unit 4 - Place Value and Measurement

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! :-)

Social Studies: Chapter 2 - "Working to Meet Our Needs"

Science: none

Notes:

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

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: December 9, 2019. 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!
