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!
Weeks of March 5 - March 9, 2018
Reading Story: "The Life of George Washington Carver"
Reading Skills: locate information; answer questions
Phonics/Spelling: r-controlled vowels
Grammar: adjectives - words that compare
Writing: continue journals; creative writing; biographical writing
Math: Unit 6 - Whole Number Operations and Number Stories
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 have also all been assigned an account on Khan Academy online. It is a great site to use to practice math skills and watch tutorial videos.
Social Studies: Chapter 4: "Celebrating our Traditions"
Student journals 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!
NEW SCHOLASTIC DATE: March orders are due online by March 23. 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!
Don't forget to turn in your Math-a-Thon books on Monday! All donations are due by March 19!
Wednesdays in March - Wear blue for trustworthiness!
March 9 - Report Cards go home for second trimester!
No School - March 20 - District Institute Day
No School - March 26-30 - Spring Break
Keep reading every day to add to our school's total of books read!
