    Ø      This reading series has so many ways to make children a better reader.

    o        By going to ThinkCentral.com your child can follow the highlighted words and listen to the stories we are reading in our Basal Reader as well as the leveled readers. 
    Use your child’s password that was sent home.
    • o       Your child should be bringing home some type of reading passage (sometimes with questions to answer) Monday through Thursday. (There may not be reading homework on late start days.)  Please read these selections with your child, sign them, and make sure they are returned.     

    Ø      Renaissance Home Connect can be viewed by going to the website:  https://hosted348.renlearn.com/299235/HomeConnect and using the user name and password that your child uses at school.

    Ø      Our Curriculum is STC

    Ø      Second grade science kits cover balance and weighing, soils, life cycle of butterflies, and changes (gases, solids, and liquids).  Also, I usually like to present a wheat unit to tie in with our science curriculum since I grew up on a wheat farm.   I love to have parents share their occupations with the class, too.
