IDs and Passwords will be coming home Thursday, September 21. Kids can work on Reflex Math as much as they want at home; at least 45 minutes per week will help. When they graduate from each level, I will move them forward to the next. Some may proceed to multiplication before the end of the year. IXL is in the process of being set up. Brain Pop is waiting to be renewed by the district currently.
*REFLEX MATH: Starting date TBD: Please practice for an average of about 30-45 minutes per week. Reach the "Green Light" every time you practice your facts. Flash cards are a great alternative to online fact practice.
-Corrected homework will come home daily. The stamp represents your child has received full credit. If there is no stamp, please send it back as it might have been overlooked though an interruption. It's always a great idea to have a folder at home to save all completed and corrected homework for each trimester just in case. Remember, the kids correct with each other to help with collaboration and coaching skills...and to get direct feedback from the teacher. No need to return.
-Phonics work completed and corrected will come home Fridays. No need to return.
*Homework: Please print out your second grader's homework every week. The homework packet will be uploaded by Monday weekly. Follow instructions given on the packet cover page.
Hot Topic oral reports are posted for the entire year and each presentation is due by the end of the month with a posting to announce which one.
"Typing Club" has been an effective online site to use for practicing typing skills. Finger placement on the keyboard and eyes to screen accuracy are most important, not speed. Practice weekly to gain fluency.
