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 12

Dear Parents,
                Your children did an amazing job at the CRE Veteran’s Day celebration! Malek’s letter to the veterans was read by him to represent second grade. Tyler introduced "You’re a Grand Old Flag” before the second grade sang to give a little background about the song. The entire second grade marched a sequence to honor the veterans. It was a beautiful ceremony! 
                Some students failed last week’s subtraction timed quiz over the flash cards in their math logs. The students have two minutes to do 20 problems. These need to be memorized. Next week I will send home the same subtraction facts as week 11 for the students who still need to master these facts. Please work with your child to help them memorize them so that they can quickly fill in the quiz. I appreciate your help with this.

                We have been learning how to write expository or “how to” papers. We are working on a special gift which will go home with your child next Friday. They are excited about making them! Next week we will be reading and learning about the first Thanksgiving.
