Dear Second Grade Parents—
This morning we started class by brainstorming all the things that we are thankful for in our lives and let me tell you……our list was HUGE! I am very thankful to have the opportunity to teach your children and work with them everyday 🙂 Thank you for your partnerships and thank you for coming and meeting with me during parent teacher conferences. We have been hard at work in second grade.
In religion we continue to prepare for reconciliation in December. Our retreat will be on Saturday December 2nd. Continue discussing the importance of the sacrament of reconciliation. Remember that reconciliation is a prerequisite for First Holy Eucharist in 3rd grade. We have also been continuing to discuss and read from the Bible as well as discussing the 10 Commandments and how they pertain to our lives at Assumption and at home.
We just finished our second full week of Spanish (Monday and Friday)! They have been working on their letters and numbers.
Students are practicing for the upcoming Christmas concert during music class and will happily sing you all their songs they are doing 🙂
Make sure you are following our class on Twitter, I try to post once a day
If your student is a red knight their spelling words are— (“ar” words)
As red knights we have been working on reading stories and describing the characters, the setting, problem, and solution as well as working on retelling stories and working on learning new vocabulary. When you are reading with your child make sure you ask them some questions about the characters, setting, problem, and solution. If students are stuck on a word when reading make sure you have the student sound out the word and try to figure out the words on their own.
If you have any questions, comments, celebrations, or concerns please feel free to contact me! Have a truly wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving break.
I am THANKFUL for all of you!
Heather (Mrs. Tetzlaff)
