We had a great first full week in grade one and two! The class has quickly settled into the new rules and procedures of the classroom. Thank you for getting you child to school on time. When students are there by 8:45 it will help them to be prepared for the day.
Every day your child will write their homework in their agenda. Please sign the agenda each night so I can track homework.
Gym Days and Dress Code:
Grade one and two have gym class on Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has sneaker for gym. We also ask that the girls not wear skirts or dresses on gym days.
For all other days please keep in mind that our dress code requires that shorts, skirts and dresses must not be shorter than just above the knee.
Each student has a log in and password for a math program that we use in our computer class. For students in grade two, your log in and password is the same as last year. The program is new to grade one students. You can find your child’s user name and password on the inside cover of their agenda. Mathletics is a comprehensive on-line math program that includes sections where students practice hundreds of maths topics in ten-question increments, a live section where students can race against other students around the world in real-time, and additional games. Students are encouraged to log in at home as well. The live section of the program is a great way for students to practice their math facts. The students’ work in Mathletics will account for a small percentage of their Math grade.
Grade two phonics test
Grade two will have their first phonics test on Friday September 19th.
