Dear Parents and Guardians,

We hope you enjoyed your Mid-Winter Recess with your children. We are ready to push forward and work hard to get ready for third grade.


This month, we will be practicing the strategies that help us gain more reading muscles. We should be reading for a longer time every night and making sure we know all of our sight words in a snap!

Please remind your child to practice rereading in their heads and aloud with fluency by scooping under phrases instead of pointing to each word.


During this month, we will be starting our new unit on poetry! This will surely be a fun unit where they can write about anything and there are no rules to their creativity!


This month we are going to continue practicing story problems. Make sure to study your facts every night and review money too!

We are finishing up our unit on suburban, urban, and rural communities.


We are learning about plants and what living things need to grow and thrive.



Please remember to dress your child appropriately for the weather since we will be having recess more outside.

Please review any packets sent home regarding school information.

Thank you for your cooperation!
