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 26-30, 2018

Reading Story: Unit 2 Module A: "Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday" and "A Chair For My Mother"

Reading Skills: story structure, characters' responses

Phonics/Spelling: r-controlled ar, or, ore, oar

Grammar: possessives, apostrophes, simple sentences

Writing: writing to describe, dialogue

Math: 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! :-)

Students will be assigned an account on Khan Academy online. It is a great site to use to practice math skills and watch tutorial videos. Please look for more information to come!

Social Studies: Chapter 2: Working to Meet Our Needs

Science: Bridge Building Unit - Please send in any empty paper towel/toilet paper tubes and cardboard boxes (cereal, granola bar, etc.) for our supplies. Thank you!

Notes:

Please remember to sign your child's blue planner/tracker sheet 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, 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!

Upcoming Events:

Wednesdays in November - Wear Purple for citizenship

No School - November 19-23 - Conferences, Thanksgiving Break

Lego In-School Field Trip - Wednesday, November 28

Ready, Set, GROW!
