Parent Teacher Conferences

I can’t wait to see everyone this week at Parent-Teacher Conferences!  To better understand your student’s successes, learning styles, and personal goals, here are a few questions to consider:

  • What is your student’s favorite school subject?
  • What is your student most interested in at home? (dinosaurs, books, playing outside, etc.)
  • What is the most challenging thing for your student about school?
  • Do you have any concerns about your student’s peer interactions?
  • What is something your student excels at?
  • How does your student feel about school?
  • How do you feel about your student’s homework assignments? How much assistance do you provide? When does your child complete their homework?
  • What is the most important learning goal for your student to achieve in second grade?

As always, thank you for all that you do each day, and for providing feedback.  Let me know if any additional questions or concerns.

 

Thanks,

Mr. Thompson

Pumpkin Math

Second Grade did some wonderful pumpkin math on Friday, October 27th.  Students measured their pumpkin’s circumference, weighed their pumpkins, made scientific observations, and graphed the number of seeds.  Second grade is full of mathematicians.

Superhero Math in Martic

It was another busy day in second grade!  We took our spelling test, practiced writing paragraphs, used problem solving skills to decipher word problems, and learned about the countries in North America.

However, the greatest excitement was from our Superhero Math assembly! Students learned how important math is to everything  they do each day, both at school and at home! Our class had some great volunteers. Ryley is the Incredible Hulk and Colton is holding the 12 foot magic wand!
