*Familiarize your 2nd grader with the spelling rule each week. For example, if the spelling rule is the -ai/-ay word families, your child will need to be able to produce words that follow this spelling pattern. We will have a spelling/phonics test at the end of each week.
*All 2nd graders will be assigned a fluency poem to read on a weekly basis. This poem must be read nightly and initialed by a parent/guardian to document that the student has read the poem. By the end of the week, your 2nd grader will also need to have the comprehension questions filled in that accompany the poem. Your 2nd grader must complete their poetry reading each night and complete the comprehension questions by Friday in order to receive full credit. If your 2nd grader does not complete this work at home, he/she will have to complete the missing work during their recess time.
*Beginning in mid-September, your 2nd grader will also be expected to fill out the nightly Reading Log in their planner. The Reading Log will document what book your 2nd grader read each night. We encourage 15 minutes of nightly reading!
