Oh my goodness! We checked the calendar today and realized that we only have eight more weeks of second grade. So we looked at our progress notes and each student wrote a goal they hope to achieve. As you look over their progress note and goal, I hope you take a few minutes and help your child list actions that will lead them to their goal. For example, many students set a goal to reach 100 points in Scholastic Reading Counts. In order to succeed, they will need to be reading extensively outside of class and discussing the characters and events of each story with someone at home before taking a quiz at school. They will also have to be diligent in using their time wisely at school so they can frequently use the classroom computer to take quizzes. You can also arrange time to take quizzes right after school in our classroom or in the computer lab.
