Spelling Contract

                  2nd Grade Spelling Contracts

Each week every student will be responsible for choosing and completing spelling activities from the following list.  Each student must earn 25 points per week. Students must choose at least one activity from the 10 or 15 point category. If you do more than 25 points you will receive extra credit. Work is to be done at home throughout the week and must be completed by Friday. Activities should be completed in "Sp." notebooks. Anything done on a computer should be brought to school in "H" folders. Happy Spelling!

5   POINT ACTIVITIES
- Draw and color a picture of any three spelling words and write the word underneath.
- Write your spelling words in ABC order.
- Write your spelling words and give a rhyming word for each.
- Write or type each spelling word 3x each.
- Write each word with the letters scrambled and have a family member unscramble to find the spelling word.

 

10 POINT ACTIVITIES
- Write your spelling words and give a synonym for each.

- Write your spelling words and give an antonym for each. 
- Cut letters out of a magazine or news paper to spell each spelling word. Use a glue stick to glue the letters in your notebook to spell each word.
- Create a word search using all of your spelling words for the week. You may do this on a computer and print it out, or you may do this in your notebook.

 

15 POINT ACTIVITIES
- Write a sentence using each spelling word and underline the word. Sentences must be at least five words long.
- Look up each spelling word in the dictionary. Write the word and definition.
- Write a story using at least 5 spelling words. Your story must have a beginning, middle and end. Underline your spelling words.

Behavior Plan

2nd Grade Behavior Plan

 

Classroom Rules:

The second grade has worked together in creating a set of rules for our classroom. The rules are as follows:

          1. Be respectful and polite to everyone.

          2. Respect everyone’s property.

          3. Be kind to everyone.

          4. Stay in your seat.

          5. Keep your hands to yourself.

          6. Try your best.

          7. Follow directions.

 

Individual Rewards:

When students show they are doing their best job to follow our classroom rules they will receive tickets. These tickets are kept in an envelope in the classroom. At the end of each trimester, students will be able to trade their good behavior tickets for prizes. Students will also be able to earn a shooting star in the hallway for going above and beyond to help others. An example would be helping another student clean up without being asked.

 

Consequences:

If a student chooses not to follow one of our rules, they will first get a post it warning stuck on their desk. If the undesirable behavior continues they will receive a check on their post it for each instance.

- 1 check= 5 minutes sitting at recess

- 2 checks= 1 ticket owed and a note home and 5 minutes sitting at recess

- 3 or more checks= 2 tickets owed, a note home and a recess detention the    next day

* Malicious destruction of school or student property, causing physical harm to any student or adult, or blatant disrespect of authority will be brought to the attention of the principal immediately.

 

Group Reward System:

When the second grade class as a whole is on task and making good choices a pom-pom will be placed in our good behavior container. Once the container is filled to the top with pom-poms students will be rewarded as a group (ex. a movie, extra recess time, etc).

Second Grade Grading Policy

 Second Grade students receive grades of O, G, S, N, on their report card per guidelines set by the Diocese of Trenton.

These are the score equivelents for Genesis and Report Cards:

O = 100-93

= 92-85

S = to 84-76

N = to 75-70

 *On assignments students may receive an O+ for outstanding work which will be equal to 100.  They can also receive a G+ which equals a 92 and an S+ which equals an 84. These grades will show as O, G, S, N on their report card.

Homework will be posted on the school website every week. The second grade students are responsible for bringing their homework home along with the right books to study. I will be making sure they have the right books for the first month. I will be signing their homework books everyday to make sure it is written correctly. The spelling words will also be on the school website every week. Their work should be independent with as little help from you as possible. This year is when they should start their independence and learning to be responsible for themselves.

Welcome to Second Grade

Welcome to a new school year!

 

September 4, 2013

 

Dear Parents,

 

        I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Miss Kelly and I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year. This is my second year teaching second grade at Mother Teresa Regional School. I spent my first four years at MTRS teaching PreK3. I am super excited to be in second grade again this year!  In 2005, I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Education and Social Studies from Caldwell College. Prior to joining the faculty at Mother Teresa Regional I taught PreK3 at Red Oak School in Middletown.

        I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her full potential. We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.

        Second grade is a very exciting year. Your second grader will learn to become more independent and will be responsible for doing their best work everyday. Second graders will also be receiving the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. Another exciting event in second grade is the May Crowning.

        If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.  You can either call the school at 732-291-1050, e-mail me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or just send in a note with your child. Once again, I am looking forward to a fantastic school year full of fun and learning!

 

                                                                Sincerely,

                                                                Miss Kelly
