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,
                We had another great week of learning. Our class continues to grow as good citizens as we are earning Coyote Coupons throughout the school! Our Veterans day Assembly was a success. The students of CRE honored our veterans at an assembly by singing, poetry writing, and letter writing. Each grade level performed their own song. Two classes from second grade used streamers and a routine, taught them by Coach Pacio, to amaze the audience. Krisha Poudel from our room was chosen to read her Veteran Acrostic to represent the second grade. 
                We had fun reading The Ugly Pumpkin and used many thinking maps to write down our observations about how the character in the story changed from the beginning, to the middle, and the end of the book. We created our own squash character and wrote about a time we felt “squashed’ As the Ugly Pumpkin had felt. We are learning about Native Americans in social studies and using our map skills to see where they used to live before the settlers came. We are learning expository writing, but that is all you get to know right now, as we are making a special Thanksgiving present to take home with us next Friday. A special thank you to Kelci Lundrigan for helping us with these Projects!We are learning about number lines in math and ordering numbers by their values to the thousand’s place. We are learning the signs for greater than and less than. This week has been full of more fun learning opportunities.

Enjoy the weekend with your families!
