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

Dear Parents and New Students,

It was great to see you all at Curriculum night. Most of you signed up for a conference and for those that did not have a chance to, I will be contacting you soon to schedule one.

I’m looking forward to a wonderful year and getting to know you all. We will all be working hard while having fun! If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to talk, please e-mail me at lcoverick@summithill.org. I am a firm believer in communication with parents. Together we will help each student have a successful and happy year.

These first weeks of school are filled with "getting to know you" activities, review, and going over routines and procedures thoroughly. I will be assessing students for reading skills and math facts. We will also do a great deal of writing activities.

Please check this web page often, as I will have my weekly news and important information on here.

Thank you,

Lori Coverick
Mrs. Coverick’s Class News for September 2nd through September 5th:

-School will not be in session on Monday, September 1st, due to the observance of Labor Day. Enjoy the nice long weekend!
-Don’t forget to send in your child’s library card as soon as possible. Our first Bookmobile is September 15th and they need to have their cards at school by then.
-P.E. is every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! Please wear gym shoes on these days.

Reading: Students will be reading a story from their reading book this week. They will be reading “The Mixed-Up Chameleon” by Eric Carle. Please remember that whenever your child brings their reading book home they should read it aloud to you.

Vocabulary Words: dull, exciting, handsome, hardly, sideways, sparkling, spotted

Spelling: Our spelling words this week will be hide, slide, ride, wide, pride, bid, kid, eyelid, inside, hid, no, big, brown, eat, and people. Our test will be on Friday. Please check out the website spellingcity.com to help your child study their spelling words. It is always a good idea to make it fun and study in a variety of ways though out the week. I also want to mention that you should have them practice writing the words for you too. I do mark answers wrong if they have reversed letters, if I can’t read the letters, and if the first letter is a capital and it is not supposed to be, etc.

Language: Students will be working on D.O.L. (correcting sentences with mistakes).

Writing: Students will be reviewing how to write a paragraph. The paragraphs we will be working on will have a topic sentence, detail sentences, and a conclusion sentence that is similar to the topic sentence.

Math: Students will be working with number sense as we explore Chapter one in our new Math Curriculum! I am very excited about this new math curriculum! Math vocabulary words are even, odd, addition sentence, digits, tens, and ones.

Social Studies: Students will be learning about Pilgrims and Native Americans throughout the second grade school year. I am excited to let you know that the musical we will be doing this year has been approved! It is called “The Turkeys are Going on Strike!” We will begin to prepare for this by studying what Pilgrims and Native Americans went through and how we are alike and different from them.

Science: We will begin to differentiate between living and non-living things. We will be reading the first part of Chapter one in our science books.
NOTICE: Due to allergies in the classroom, students will NOT be allowed to bring anything in their daily snack that contains peanuts or nuts. They will also NOT be able to bring any snack that contains wheat this year. So, I am asking that for snack time, parents only send in fruit, vegetables, or cheese sticks. Thank you for your cooperation.
We are requesting that you visit our district website at www.summithill.org in the next few weeks and click, "Student/Parent Handbook." After reading and reviewing the handbook with your Rogus student, please print out the Handbook Signature Sheet 2014-2015 and return the form to school with your Rogus student. We thank you for completing this important and informative task.
If anyone would like to donate some old "Highlight" Magazines to our classroom, it would be greatly appreciated. I would like to keep them for our classroom library. Thanks!
Rogus Expectatios:
Be respectful.
Be responsible.
Be safe.
