Addition and Subtraction Review


*Addition and subtraction facts to 20 need to be memorized, so please continue to practice these skills at home!  A math fact practice will be done every Friday.  A 100% in the time given will earn students 10 bonus happy sticks. For more information check out the "homework" section on this page*

Word Study
Word Patterns: inflectional ending -ed
rained, asked, cleaned, bumped, loaded, wanted, watched, picked, lived, walked
Challenge Words: research, multiplication, evidence, information, visual


Language Arts
Reading: drama

Language: adverbs

Writing: poetry

Science

Social Studies

The weekly homework is passed out on Mondays and due on Friday morning.
A completion grade will be given for every subject.  10 points will be deducted for every day that homework is late.  A 0 will be given after the third day it is late.  

Please make sure you have checked over your child's homework and allowed him/her to make corrections before it is turned in on Friday.

Students should be reading every night and recording the title of the book read on the homework recording sheet. 20 minutes of reading each night is recommended. Please make sure your child records the title themselves.

Studying math facts should be done nightly, as students are expected to memorize all addition and subtraction facts to 20. Math facts practice could be about 5 to 10 minutes and includes anything that requires the student to work on math facts.   Some examples include:
-store bought flashcards
-homemade flashcards
-printed math facts worksheets
-math facts games
-parent verbally calls out a fact and student answers
-mathletics facts practice Mathletics
-playing "war" with a deck of cards (whoever calls out the sum or difference first keeps the cards)
-rolling two dice and finding the sum or difference
-apps or online games

Please help your child practice his/her word study words each week.  There will be a word study quiz every Friday for a grade.  The Word Study Check scores will average together as a grade at Progress Report and Report Card time.  Those who miss 4 or more words on their word study check will need to practice the words during Fun Friday time.
However, students who spell all five Challenge Words correctly will be rewarded with 10 happy sticks!

Homework Pass: When a student has earned a no homework pass, please staple the pass to the homework and turn it in on Friday.  Keep in mind that students will still need to read every night and word study words will still need to be studied, as there will still be a Friday word study check.

Snack Time
Second grade does have snack time daily.  Appropriate snack ideas include cheese, apple slices, bananas, grapes, crackers, or veggies.  Please do not send chips, dressing to dip veggies in, or anything requiring a spoon or a fork.
Please send a water bottle with your child daily. To prevent spills, it must have a sports top lid.

Lunch
Please know that we encourage and welcome visitors at Galatas.  When visiting during lunch, please understand that we only have enough room for 24 students at each table.  We have a special reserved area for students to sit with their parents when they choose to visit during lunch.  The table is located in the center of the cafeteria.  In the event that the reserved table is full, your child will sit at their assigned table and we kindly ask that you stand behind them if there is no room to sit next to them.  Thanks for your understanding in this matter!

Birthday Treats
Birthday treats will be passed out in the cafeteria at the end of lunch.
The treats need to be store bought (state mandated).
Birthday treats can only be passed out to the students in our classroom.  Please to not bring extra for friends in other classes. (We have 21 students in section 26.)
Please make sure the treats are easy to pass out, as your child will be responsible for handing them out to their classmates.
Please be sure all birthday treats are precut or individual servings : cookies, brownies, cupcakes, etc.
