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 27

Dear Parents,
        We finished the nine weeks today. Grades will be put in by next Monday and you will be able to view your child’s report card on line next Wednesday. For those of you who requested paper copies in Skyward at the beginning of the year, you will find your child’s report card in his/her Friday folder which will go home on Wednesday due to the short week. Today We had our end of the nine week assembly and presented many awards. The two students chosen to be Quality Coyotes in our room are Bella and Bryson! Congratulations to them both for their hard work this nine weeks.
             We completed our math unit on money and patterns in numbers. Our ten days of weather data collecting also ended today. We have several evaporation experiments that we will continue to watch over the next several days to see which containers evaporate the quickest. We are learning to write sentences with the trait of fluency in mind as well as varying sentence length. We have learned the difference between learning information from a book and drawing an inference with the words, pictures and our background knowledge. It has been a great week of learning even though we caught a little Spring fever because of the nice weather.


*STAAR Testing next week: “To ensure the secure testing environment, the campus will be closed to all visitors on Monday, 3/30 and Tuesday, 3/31. This includes no visitors for lunch, volunteering, etc… Thank you for your understanding and support for all of our students!”
