1H February Update

Happy February!

Whoa! This school year has definitely flown on by! I am so happy of all the progress my students have made thus far. I am looking forward to parent teacher conferences later this month so I can share with you all their growth. Please continue the learning process at home with Lexia, XtraMath, flash cards and nightly reading; it sure has made a difference and for that I am very grateful. Let’s continue to do great!

Classroom Notes:

AR: This month we will remain at 5 AR tests passed with an 80% or higher. Please remind your student not to wait for the last minute to get these tests in.

Book Report: This month our book report will be on a Non-Fiction book of their choice. They will fill out the Hook-A-Book form using complete sentences. These will be due by February 28.

Scholastic Book Orders: I will send out the scholastic flyers later this week. They have a ton of new books and at great prices too. These will be due back February 21st. Class code NC42F

XtraMath- Please make sure we are logging into XtraMath at least twice a week. This will definitely help with fact fluency for 2nd grade.
