Highlights from Mrs. Hill
December 6, 2013
I hope everyone had a relaxing Thanksgiving break spent with family and friends. We’ve had a busy week back to school!
Report cards are being sent home today. Please look in your child’s take-home folder for this important envelope. Remember to celebrate successes with your child and discuss opportunities for improvement as well. We don’t have formal conferences scheduled again until after the second trimester. However, I am available to meet if you have questions or concerns about your child’s progress. Just send me an e-mail and we can set up a time to meet in the next couple weeks.
Andersonville Elementary students are fortunate to have access to an on-line reading program called RAZ kids thanks to generous funding from our PTO. This can be used as an additional resource for nightly reading homework. Children on our class can access the program at www.raz-kids.com. The teacher username for our class is: erinhill and the password is your child’s initials. Once logged in, users can click on their name and have access to a wide variety of books to at their independent level. Please encourage your child to take advantage of this wonderful resource!
We’ve spent quite a bit of time over the last several weeks learning and practicing two very important math fact strategies – doubles and make a 10. Please work with your child to ensure that these two strategies are used at home during nightly math fact practice. Memorizing the doubles math facts and the numbers that make 10 will allow your child to master the remaining math facts. Mastery of the addition and subtraction math facts (0 to 18) is a life skill for second-graders. We’ll continue our work at school – please continue to work on this at home as well. Thanks for helping your child to be successful with math. J
As always, I welcome your comments, concerns or questions. Please feel free to call or write.
Have a good weekend!
