Welcome to my blog! My name is Beth Carpenter! I am a 2nd grade teacher at Coyote Ridge Elementary. I majored in Early Childhood Education and have taught for 18 years. I have taught grades K- 3 which gives me a unique ability to know where my second graders fit within those grades. Teaching is more than a profession to me, it is a calling. I love to help light the fire of curiosity to help all my students become life long learners!

Week 5

Parents,
    We had another great week of learning! I am so impressed with the writing that your children are doing. They are quickly learning writing skills to improve their narratives.  We are editing, revising, and writing our final drafts of “In the Fall”! They have great imaginations! Over all I was impressed with the reading and vocabulary tests. The children took the tests independently and did very well. They are so proud about being second graders and already see a big improvement in all they do. 
      Please continue to have your children practice their math facts with the flashcards sent home in their math log or by playing Fasttmath on the computer. I have taught my class how to access fasttmath from home. The more facts that are memorized, the more successful your child will feel as we delve into harder two and three step problem solving strategies.
     A pumpkin project went home in the coyote folder today. Please help your child decide how to decorate it and return it by Tuesday so that we can add it to our class pumpkin patch. You may decorate them any way you wish and use a variety of materials to create your one of a kind pumpkin! I appreciate all you do!


      I will be sending home times and dates for conferences next week so that you can begin signing up! I look forward to meeting with all of you!
