Grade 2 (Miss Pula)

Dear Parents,

A homework assignment and the new spelling words were sent home today.

This week I sent home the results of the Benchmark Reading Test 4.  Also, I included your child/children's writing portion of the test.  I was very pleased with the paragraphs your child/children wrote. They wrote a topic sentence, supporting details, used transitions, and wrote a concluding sentence.  We still need to remember upper case letters at the beginning of sentences and to use ending punctuation marks.  However, I have seen a great deal of progress since the beginning of the school year.  I will continue to work on comprehension questions and to especially have my students use more critical thinking skills.  As your child/children are reading at home ask questions about what is the main idea of the story or ask open ended questions about the characters.  If you need any more suggestions about comprehension issues please feel free to contact me.

Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day weekend!

Ms. Pula

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Parents,

I stapled the new spelling words on page 37 in your child's daily planner.  There are 12 words on next week's spelling test.

The first PTO meeting of the year will be held on Wednesday, September 20th in the school cafeteria.  I hope to see you there.

Have a great weekend!

Ms. Pula
