ar Parents:
Our Second Graders are doing GREAT!  They are ready for the next step in Home Learning!  

Today your child will take home a RED MATH FOLDER.  This Math folder should:
1.  be used as a study guide OR as needed (There is a "Study Guide" page for each night's HW assignment.  Check the pocket that correlates with the chapter number.)
2.  ALWAYS STAY IN YOUR CHILD'S BOOK BAG.   BRING IT TO SCHOOL EVERYDAY! We will be adding resources to this folder in order to help your child review at home.  Please DO NOT REMOVE any pages from this folder.

Please use your child's "TOOLKIT" to reference website addresses, usernames and passwords.  This paper can be found in your child's PURPLE home learning folder (in a sheet protector).  This was supplied toy our child on the first day of school.

Please allow your child to bring his/her Math workbook or workbook pages to class in order to review and preview home learning assignments.  We are currently dedicating the first 5/10 minutes of class to answering any questions the students had regarding the prior night's home learning. In addition, the students and I preview the home learning that is assigned and we complete an example together.  This will help your child develop a very valuable study habit that they can use in the upcoming grades.  It is working great so far...students are very motivated!

Thank you and have a great day.
