P.E. Days and P.E. Strip:
The Grade Two class will have P.E. on Monday, Thursday and Friday. On those days, students should wear their P.E. strip under their regular uniform so that they can change quickly.
The Grade Two children will have some regular homework. Every week they will have their Spelling words to study along with a Math practice booklet. Both are designed to help the reinforce spelling, grammar and math concepts. They do not need to be returned to school, however, if they want to bring it back, I will give them a stamp for finishing.
Their main focus at home should be to continue to practice reading at least 15 - 20 minutes at home. This can involve reading silently, having someone read to them and reading aloud to others.
Every year many students lose pieces of their uniform - sweaters, ties, even pants. I know uniforms can be expensive so I highly recommend that every piece of your child's uniform is clearly labelled with their name or initial so any lost items can be quickly returned.
The school requires a note for any days that your child is absent. The note can be very simple, just stating the day and reason the child was absent. This can be handwritten or even emailed to my account. All days absent have to be accounted for by the end of May.
Snack and Lunch:
Students will have a short time before recess to eat their snack. At 12:25 (after lunch recess), students will come back into the classroom and eat lunch. Please make sure that your child always has a snack packed, even on days they might have hot lunch.
