Welcome to our Second grade classroom! (Room 306)
I am Mrs. Carpenter. I have taught elementary school for over 30 years. I have a Master's in Elementary Education. I am also a K-12 certified school guidance counselor. I believe that every child can learn, and that learning is a lifelong skill that should be nurtured and enjoyed. I am happy to have your child in my classroom! We will be busy every day as we are "Learning for Life, Loving to Learn".
Every Monday, your child will bring home a homework packet. Please check the cover page for specific homework activities for the week. Homework packets will be due every Friday. In addition, your child should be reading to you orally each night. Oral reading develops fluency. Please do not "time" the minutes your child reads. I want him/her to enjoy reading for pleasure, and develop a lifelong love of reading. Nightly Reading Charts will be included in the packet. These are due the following Monday, so we can record our reading on the weekend, as well. *Any daily work that is not completed in class will be stamped as "Homework" and will be sent home individually, as needed. Incomplete daily work is due the following day.*
Our Spelling tests will be taken every Friday.
