Happy Friday!
We loved getting to meet with you all virtually on Wednesday for Back to School Night! As promised, below you will find links, websites, and answers to FAQs that were asked on Wednesday. Again, all of the following information can be found on our 2nd Grade Webpage along with our PowerPoint presentation that can be accessed all year if/when questions arise under the Downloads tab. 
 
Back to School Night Follow-Up
While studying with your child on their weekly phonograms, use this website/app to help yourself learn the sounds of all of the phonograms!
 
Infinite Campus login can be found here if you have not accessed it yet. This is where you will be able to access your child’s grades.

Red Folders/Student Planner
In regards to Student Planners and red folders, we cannot emphasize enough how important it is for the kids to take this as their responsibility. We want for them to come and tell their teachers if they have forgotten it and have parents refrain from e-mailing us on behalf of their child. They should be asking you to sign their planner at night, not you asking them. We know you have enough to do and are confident they can do this on their own and learn important life lessons along the way 😊
 
Literacy
Next week in Reading, we will enjoy our story for the week entitled Dogs. For writing, we are excited to begin learning how to take our four types of sentences and form them into an informative paragraph. We will be focusing on how to make a strong topic sentence to start off an informative writing. In grammar, we will be learning more about nouns and reviewing our favorite noun jingle from 1st grade! Be sure to ask your child for a live performance!
 
History
After learning all about maps and globes, we now know how to locate places on a map! Our first stop on the map is to India! We are excited to begin this new unit on India where we will be learning about India’s flag, religion, and special holidays they celebrate. Be on the lookout for some AMAZING crafts that will be coming home with your child.
 
Enjoy the warmer weather this weekend!
 
Sincerely,
The 2nd Grade Team
