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 May 21 - June 1, 2018
Reading Story: Story 28 - "Let's Go Rock Collecting" (no story or vocabulary tests)
Reading Skills: inferences, multiple meaning words
Phonics/Spelling: vowel variants (no spelling test)
Grammar: helping verbs
Writing: continue journals; creative writing
Math: Unit 9 - Equal Shares and Whole Number Operations (finish and test the unit)
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 5: "Our Nation, Past and Present"
Science: complete animal unit with presentations and Animal Museum
It has been a pleasure and privilege being your child's teacher this year. I have seen so much progress and growth in each of my students, and I know they will do a wonderful job in third grade. I hope everyone has a great summer break!
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: LAST ORDER FOR THE SCHOOL YEAR!!! May orders are due online by May 15. 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!
Check your ABCs calendar for each day's theme!
