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 Three

Dear Parents,
       During  the third week of school I have seen so much growth! The students are beginning to independently manage their time and learning opportunities in the classroom. I have been individually assessing children as they happily go about their work. We have been discussing good work habits and responsibility.  The students are getting better returning their reading and math logs completed on Fridays. Please help your child remember to keep these important folders in their backpacks. When they tell me “mom or dad took it out” I remind them that it is their responsibility to put it back in each night. As far as I know I do not have any moms or dads in my second grade class! They laugh and promise to remember. As well as these logs there are other papers that come home weekly for math that must be completed and returned the next day. The reading book comes home when we have a story that week for them to read twice a week. (Once on Monday and then the night before their comprehension test.) The vocabulary words that are from the story are included on the test. It is important that the vocabulary homework be completed as well. 
        If there is any parent who would like to be my room mom or dad, please let me know as soon as possible. I would really appreciate your help! An added bonus is that our first field trip will be Dec. 12. I may take one parent. The room mom/dad could join us on this field trip as long as her/his background check has been completed! The information  for the field trip went home in the Coyote Ridge Folder on Friday.
          Lastly I’d like to encourage you all to become members of the PTA at Coyote Ridge! Together we can do amazing things. I have joined and hope to see you this Thursday night at 6:30 in the  CRE gym.
