Mrs. Lori Coverick - 2nd  (Send e-mail)

Hello! Welcome to Second Grade!

I am so excited to be starting another school year! I love the beginning of the year!

The first couple of weeks will be filled with learning new procedures and routines, learning the expectations of second grade, and getting to know our new friends.

I know the beginning of the school year can be challenging when you are getting to know the routines and procedures of "The new teacher". I am here to answer any questions you have and want to keep the lines of communication open.

Please feel free to e-mail me, send a note in with your child, or leave a phone message with any concerns throughout the school year.
My email address is lcoverick@summithill.org.
The school’s phone number is 815-464-2034.

I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday, August 23rd for Curriculum Night.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Coverick

For the Week of August 22- August 26:

STAR Testing: This week students will begin STAR testing for Reading. This allows us to see where each student is at academically so we can plan for instruction. Next week we will have students tested on STAR for their Math abilities.

PBIS: Students will have full day of fun activities combined with learning the expectations of our school. This will take place on Friday.

Reading:
-We will begin Lesson One in our Journeys Reading Book. We will be reading a "Henry and Mudge" story.
-Our vocabulary words will be: curly, straight, floppy, collars, drooled, weighted, stood, and row.
-High Frequency words that students should practice and master this week are: around, be, five, help, next, to, or, pull, take, until, and walked.

Language:
-Students will learn about sentences that are statements and questions.
-They will work on recognizing subjects and predicates of a sentence.
-They will review short a and short i sounds. Students will be spelling, reading, and writing words with short a and short i.
-Spelling words they will work on will be: sad, dig, jam, glad, list, win, flat, if, fix, rip, kit, mask, as, his, sandwich, and picnic.
-The spelling test will not be until the following week. Lesson One will take two weeks to get through.

Math:
-Students will be assessed on xtramath.org and will be bringing home a sheet with the information you need to set them up on a home computer or tablet. This is a great way to get minutes on their math logs and it is also a fun way to improve accuracy and speed with facts. Using xtramath also helps students get better with using a computer or tablet.
-Students have been assessed to see where they should start in our Mastering Math Facts program. We will begin training this week and also implement the program. This is another very successful way to improve math fact skills.
-We will start Chapter One in our Go Math Series. This chapter deals with Place Value.

Writing:
-We will have a writing workshop four days a week in class where students will "Work on Writing". They will practice many different types of writing.
-Students will be writing about their weekend.
-Students will incorporate their vocabulary words in their writing.
-This week I hope to find time to train them with Doodle Loops, a fun and creative writing activity that we do throughout the year.
-Students will bring home their first vocabulary sentence homework. We will start it in class to help show you what the expectations are. This will be due Thursday.

Social Studies:
-We will be reading a story titled: "Thanksgiving, Then and Now". We will discuss and do some activities about Thanksgiving.
