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 May 20 - 24, 2019
Reading Story: Unit 4 Module A: "The Earth Dragon Awakes" and "Seek the Sun"
Reading Skills: characters and their responses, point of view
Phonics/Spelling: compound words, long i
Grammar: nouns review, verbs review
Writing: characters, scenes
Math: complete Unit 9: Equal Shares and Whole Number Operations; test on Wednesday/Thursday, May 22-23
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: none
Science: continue animal unit; work on dioramas in class (please bring in all supplies from home on Monday, May 20); practice presentations: in-class presentations Wednesday, May 29, wax museum Thursday, May 30 at 10:00 am
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: finished for the year. Thanks for your support! 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!
Remember to refer to the website for our ABC countdown!
