2nd Grade - Nelson Prairie

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 March 16 - March 20, 2020

Reading Story: test on Change Makers and "City Green" will be this week

Reading Skills: text features, main idea/details

Phonics/Spelling: long o - test will be on Tuesday, March 17

Grammar: prepositions, conjunctions, adjectives 

Writing: captions, summaries, informative paragraphs

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 8 - Geometry and Arrays

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 4 - "Celebrating Our Traditions"

Science: none


As a reminder, New Lenox School District 122 has adopted E-Learning Days in lieu of closing school due to inclement weather.  Our class has reviewed the E-Learning lessons with students to prepare them for a possible E-Learning day. If you would like your child to have a paper packet, please let me know. More information can be found on our website at: http://www2.nlsd122.org/c/index.php/parents-and-students/e-learning/.

Six Flags Read to Succeed has extended their deadline!  If you would like to participate, there’s still time to log your reading minutes online.  Please be sure to submit your minutes by Monday, April 6th.  Happy Reading!!

Fitness Logs for Raging Waves tickets due Monday, April 6!

Please remember to check weather conditions and make sure your child is prepared for whatever our Illinois spring may bring us!

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: March 20, 2020. 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!
