Your child’s nightly homework will consist of…
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
