        Welcome to 2-1
        for the Week of 
        Sept. 4, 2018!

Dear Parents and Students,
 We are all looking forward to a fabulous year ahead as we BE JESUS by welcoming our love of God, our love of learning, and our love of each other together!

Our first day of school will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 4. Tuesday and Wednesday (Sept. 4 and 5) will follow the half day schedule. Our first full day will take place on Thursday, Sept. 6. Please send in a note if there are any changes in your child's dismissal routine.
 All student supplies must be brought in on the first day of class. Due to the amount of student supplies that are needed on that first day, parents may wait to send in classroom supplies (paper towels, tissues, wipes) until later in the week. 

Please remember to send in all fees, office paper work, and medical forms as soon as possible.

All summer assignments are due on the first day of school. This includes the Math Packet, Reading Log, and Book Project.

*Please remember that the children are required to have at least 3 sharpened pencils in their cases each day. Thank you! 

 This week we will discuss how and why Jesus made us so special. We will also think about ways that we can Be Jesus.

**Please remember to say one Hail Mary each night to the Blessed Mother, our class saint.

 We will review our basic math facts that we mastered in First Grade and receive our Math Book towards the end of the week. Please utilize the connected website for review work and activities related to this chapter when the pass codes are distributed later in the month. Math homework will not be given until the first full week of school . 

This week we will be given our new readers. By the end of the week, the children will be introduced to the theme, "How We Depend on Friends" by reading our first story entitled "Little Flap".

We will review all of our syllable types from First Grade. Please see the Phonics packet that will be sent home this week regarding this topic. It is important that the children practice their Phonics skills nightly in order to meet with success in the classroom!

The class will receive their weekly list of 15 Spelling Words beginning the week of Sept.10. The words for that week are: 1. went, 2. tell, 3. pet, 4. job, 5. fog, 6. not, 7. tug, 8. hut, 9. tub, 10. bun, 11. they, 12. said, 13. one, 14. or, 15. see.

 We will complete two mini writing projects this week about how we are special and how we can Be Jesus throughout this very special year!

Please check out the "Class News" page for details about classroom policies. 

Also, remember to utilize the pass codes for the Math and Reading series that will be sent home later in September. These codes enable the students to gain access to the Connected website so as to reference their math books and readers for reinforcement activities as well as the pages from their textbooks. It is a great resource for learning!
This website can be easily accessed by clicking on the McGraw: Math & Reading link located to the left of this page.

All the best for a happy, healthy, and fabulous first week ahead.
