A few ways to help your child at home...

As adults, we often take things for granted.  In second grade, most students have their first experiences with  text books.  Along with this, it's their first experience with using a table of contents, index, and using vocabulary.  All of these are skills that fall under state standards and are very important to help understand the difference between fiction and nonfiction which we will be later building on.  So, as parents, please take a few minutes every night while reading to go over the table of contents.  We introduced it today so some reinforcement at home will help instill this new information.
Just remember that parents have the biggest influence on their children.  We are so excited to be working with your child.  Thanks for doing all you do!
