Welcome to Mrs. Heggins’ Class
Welcome to a new school year. I hope your child is adjusting well to Second Grade. I would like to encourage you to read with your child every night. We are trying to get on schedule where the children will go to the library at least two or three days a week. Please remember to sign their R.E.D. folder once they have read their books. I would like for them to get two books each time-one fiction(not true) and one non-fiction(true).
Please help your child to complete their homework every night. Please do not do it for them. The homework that I send home is a review of the things we do in class. They will be tested on this material. I like for you to help with the homework by checking to see if it is correct or not.
On September 20th, we will take our first field trip. We will join other first grade classes from the county at Sloan Park to listen to different storytellers. Please listen to the weather report and dress your children accordingly.
Progress reports will come home on September 25th. Please sign and return the report as soon as you can. If you would like to have a conference to discuss the progress of your child, please let me know.
Below are things that we are studying this month.
Math: Problem Solving within 20
Social Studies: Citizenship/Government
Science: Energy from the sun/Weather tools/Measuring Weather Conditions.
Language Arts: Asking and answereing questions such as who, where, when, and how and to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text.
We are continuing the Phonics program-FUNdations. The children seem to enjoy the different ways we are learning how to decode words and write sentences.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s time in my room, please call or write a note to voice your concern. I will be glad to sit down with you and try to solve any problems your child my have.
Please come by and visit our classroom at any time. Lunch is 11:15-11:45.
Have a GREAT day!!!
