Homework

Your child’s nightly homework will consist of…           

  1. Read for at least 15 minutes
  2. Practice spelling words
  3. Study math facts for fact fluency
  4. Assignment not completed in class that are brought home in your child’s homework folder must be brought back the next day

             In addition to this, your child will bring home a Spelling assignment on Monday nights.  This assignment will work on spelling skills covered in class.  This assignment is due back Wednesday.  A Math assignment will go home on Wednesday nights. The assignment will review our current standard being covered that week.  This assignment is due by Friday.



Discipline Plan

Second grade will be using a Clip-Up Chart this year to monitor student’s choices.   All students will begin the day on green in the middle of the chart. Clothespins will be moved up or down depending on the choices each child makes throughout the day. Clips that are moved down may be moved back up if the teacher sees the student making improved choices. In addition, once a clip is moved up, it may be moved down. All clothespins are moved back to green at the end of the day.  A calendar will come home each night in your child’s school to home folder indicating where they ended the day.  Please look for this nightly, sign, and return. At the end of the month, if your child averages 1 * per day, they will participate in our monthly clip party.  So for example, if we are in school for 17 days in one month, they will need 17 stars at the end of the month to participate.  If your child has not earned enough stars, they will go to study hall instead of the party. 



Lunch

We are scheduled to eat lunch at 11:50-12:20 daily.  Please feel free to join your child for lunch at any time.  Also, don’t forget to sign in at the office when you come up!




Treats

If you want to bring snacks for the class for any reason (birthday celebration, holiday treat, etc.) please be aware of the OPS policy that states that only unopened store purchased food products can be passed out to the students.   Please also be sensitive to products containing peanuts.  No home baked goods are allowed.  Also, to align with our emphasis on healthy living at Saddlebrook, and to lessen the distractions, the PTA has voted and agreed to limit the birthday celebrations this year.  Students are more than welcome to bring treats as long as they are healthy-cupcakes, cookies, donuts, or other unhealthy items will now be sent back home with the student who brought them.  Non-food treats, such as pencils or stickers that can be sent home with classmates are also an option.  Ideas for healthy snacks could be items like crackers, fruit snacks, string cheese, yogurt, etc.  Birthday treats should only be brought to share with the class. 

Class Rules

In my classroom, I work hard to promote an environment of respect.  Therefore, our class rule is this:

I will treat others the way I want to be treated.

I will respect others,

including my peers, teachers, and visitors.

I will respect things,

including classroom and school furniture and supplies.

I will respect myself!
