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 28

Dear Parents,
               It is so hard to believe that the third six weeks is over! We are beginning our 4th nine weeks period on Monday, April 4th. We have begun fractions in math and so far it seems that everyone understands the concept. They can all use a little practice writing out a story problem where the answer is a fraction.
               In science we are learning about what causes us to see the phases of the moon. It would be a great idea to point out the moon in the sky each time you see it. A first hand viewing is always  better than drawings.
               They enjoyed our reading selection, Luke Goes to Bat. The message was to never give up. We practiced sequencing, writing beginning, middle , end and wrote creatively with this story as our inspiration. Everyone did well on both parts of the assessment yesterday.
                In language we are working on Possessive nouns and contractions. I graded the language homework which showed me that possessive nouns will need to be retaught. It is a difficult concept, but we will keep practicing!
                In Social Studies we began a unit about our government. We are learning all about our local, state and U.S.  Governments as well as our leaders!
