Welcome back and Happy New Year!

This week we will spend a good amount of energy reviewing our routines, as second graders fall out of practice having been away for weeks!

Be sure your child dresses in layers so we can adjust to the building and still go outside.

Home Assignments:

  • Read daily 15 minute minimum 7 days (track on the contract due Mon)
  • Math Home link (make it more challenging for your child as needed)
  • Word study: daily practice sight words for improved reading fluency (5 days)
  • Writing Application: Mon plan, Tues draft, Wed revise, Thurs edit, Fri submit

Writing Application Choices:

Choice #1: A Story About Me:
Have you ever been to the dentist?  Write a story about your visit.  Tell what you felt, saw, and heard.

Choice #2: Terrific Toothpaste:
Pretend you have invented a new toothpaste.  Write a label for the toothpaste box.  Tell how to use your toothpaste and why it is special.

Sight words: all, food, front, hair, never, party, sky, started, stories, warm
