Message From Mrs. Baskin  


Jan. 18, 2019


Dear Families,


         We survived the rainy weather!  Just a reminder that there is no school on Monday due to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.  


         The children are enjoying the dance rotation with Ms. Allison during PE time.  We are working on subtraction with ungrouping.  Some students are quite good at it, while others are struggling a little with it.  We are learning about culture and customs in Social Studies.  As I mentioned last week, please return the slip that was sent home (or send an e-mail) to let me know if your child will do an optional science project for the Science Fair in February. We started a new unit "Solving Problems Through Technology" in reading.  Mrs. Swanborn has just started a clay project with the class.  Exciting times in Second Grade!


        Have a great weekend! 



















Instructions for using various school websites:

Sept. 17, 2018


Dear Families,


          It is easiest to log in to Think Central AV by going to the SPUSD Elementary Bookmarks site.  (Google it to find it.)  Think Central AV is our Math Expressions  (regular math curriculum) online component.  (The icon is school site specific.)  Students can access that by username:  first name, last name, date  of birth number (example:  username:  janedoe13),  and password, adjective, animal name (example of password: smartlion.)    This will take you to a home page with your child's name on it.   Click on the  To Do List Then click on a Personal Math Trainer homework lesson (PMT 2.1, for example).   There will be some problems to practice.  If your child forgets the strategies we've learned, the lesson will take  you step by step  to solve it.  There is also My Library which has the daily class lessons, glossary, and other information on it.   MegaMath  has a few math games.  It's a good math site to see the strategies we are learning.    


                The Ticket to Read site can also be found on the  SPUSD Elementary Bookmark website (elementarylab.weebly website).  Your child's username and password are the same for Ticket to Read and Think Central AV.


                The DreamBox site can be reached on the SPUSD Elementary Bookmark site as well.  If your electronic device has a camera, click on the CLEVER icon.  Click on Allow Camera, when Use Your Camera pops up on your screen.  Then  Flash your child's CLEVER (QR) card  inside the camera box that appears.  When the green check mark appears, your student will be directed to his log in using his/her usual username and password.
