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 20

Dear Parents,
           This week seemed to fly by! We continued working with three digit regrouping in addition and subtraction. Your children are becoming more confident and are figuring out word problems and creating two step problems on their own. We finished up our unit in science on bodies of water. We learned a lot about both freshwater and saltwater sources. In social studies we are learning about wants, needs, consumers and producers. They are really interested in the choices they can make as consumers. We used thinking maps to show the benefits of choices then had to make a decision what we would buy. In language we learned about action verbs and wrote an action verb story about what we do in the winter. We continued testing in reading , read some stories, then answered comprehension questions.
          We are continuing our 21 day challenge to be healthy. Please have your child bring a fresh vegetable to school for snack on Monday. We are earning points for participating.
           Please send in your Valentine Letter to your child by Monday, Feb.1. We will be hanging them in the hallway to display your works of art! Your children loved the fact that this was your homework, but reading your words will mean so much to each of them.

           Two important things went home in today’s coyote folder. There is a time line project that is very special. These will be on display during Open House and are keepsakes you will cherish. Most of the class has a food item to bring in by Wednesday next week. We will use these to make our 100th Day snack on Friday.
