Second Grade Info

Friday Folders and Homework

Friday Folders: Friday folders are sent home on Fridays or on the last day of school for the week. On the cover of the Friday folder is a place for you to sign and make a comment if you need to. There will be notices and students’ finished work in the folders. This could be a wonderful time for you and your child to sit and share what we have been doing in school.

 Homework: Homework folders are sent home on Mondays (or the first day of the school week) for the week. They are due back on Friday. We know how busy schedules can be with parent work and after school activities for the students. You can choose which nights are best for you and your child. If your child finishes the homework early they may bring it in before Friday, but please keep the spelling word list at home to practice. There will usually be spelling and math for homework.   It is important that your child continue to be reading every night. If you are in need of any books at your child’s level please let us know.  In addition to weekly homework, unfinished class work may go home any day of the week to be completed and returned. We will continue with our Every Day Math program this year and we will be sending home parent letters in the homework folder for each new unit.
