Welcome to Mrs. Artymiak's 2nd Grade Class!Specials Rotations
Can you believe it is already October? As we continue to make our way through this second month of school, we want to thank you for your continued support. We hope that you have settled into some nice routines at home and things are going smoothly. Meeting all of you at Curriculum Night was a pleasure, and we look forward to seeing you again during the October conferences. Parent-Teacher Conferences will be on October 22nd and 23rd, with a few additional dates as necessary. Please remember that conference days are single session days with dismissal at 1:00pm.
From our end, it appears that the children have adjusted well to their first week nightly reading and math homework reinforcing reading and math at home and helping the kids to remember to record their work on their logs. If you have any questions or concerns, please free to give us a call or contact us by email.
During the month of October, our language arts focus will be on the message the author is trying to tell through the story, as well as the theme of the story. In math, the students are reviewing time to the hour, working with coin values, learning strategies (making 10 and doubles), and solving story problems. Remember, there are many different ways to solve a story problem and the children are encouraged to use what works best for THEM! We will be starting our hands-on “Changes” (states of matter) science unit so, be on the lookout for your child to be pointing out various solids, liquids, and gases!
