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 17

Dear Parents,
         It was great to get back to work after the break! I really missed my kiddos. We started our interesting Science unit on rocks! We have been describing them by their physical properties.
         In math we have been working on 2 digit subtraction with borrowing. Ask your child what this means: “ More on top, no need to stop. More on the floor, go next door. Borrow one, give ten." We are getting it! This is a very hard concept for second graders. 
        Researching our famous American has been going very well! The children are learning many interesting facts about his/her chosen person. They are doing a fantastic job. 
         Monday,   I will be sending home the fasttmath print out of your child’s addition facts 0-9. From the looks of the pages, many have not been going on at home to practice these facts. This program is designed to help your child memorize their facts. Please get on fasttmath for math log 2-3 times a week. Remember, you can click on the link at the bottom of this page to go to my blog. Then just click on the fasttmath link under links for learning.User name is your child’s last initial, first initial and his/her student number. Example user name for John Smith: sm12458532 The password is abc123 for all students.



*Please send in a set of 12 pencils for our classroom pencil can. We are completely out! Also I would love a donation of scissors for our classroom. I had 9 pairs that have gone missing. We no longer have a pair of scissors for each of the children in our class. Many of them are in need of new crayons as well. Please ask your child if he/she needs a new box of crayons. Our glue sticks are holding out for now! :) Thank you for your support!

*The information came home about our February Field Trip this past Monday. We will be going to the Dallas Children’s Theater; I will be able to take two Chaperones and you will be riding the bus with us!I have not heard from anyone who would like to come with us. Also please send in $9.00 and the field trip form as soon as you can.
