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 29

Dear Parents,
          We had another great week of school. It all started with our end of the third nine weeks assembly. Our two Quality Coyotes were given a certificate at the assembly. Congratulations to Izel and Milan! You can see their pictures on our classroom blog. We continued learning about fractions and are gaining more confidence. We just need to make sure we follow directions to divide our shapes into equal pieces and read the questions carefully to see what they are asking.
            We finished our Science Unit on Objects in the Sky and began setting up our next unit called Basic Needs of Plants and Animals. We actually have a caterpillar inside a chrysalis right now, changing into a butterfly in our butterfly cage!
             In reading we read a nonfiction text called Super Storms. We practiced looking for the main idea on each page and the supporting details. We chose one type of storm and created a main idea mobile.
              In language we finished up learning about contractions and began learning about adverbs and how the can describe the action words in our writing to make it more interesting!
               In Social studies we continued to learn about what our local, state, and United States Government does! Look at the attachment above for a Love and Logic PTA sponsored talk you may attend.

* Look in your child’s Coyote Folder for information about a plain, white pillow case needed for each student in second grade for a special keep sake project 

*Field Day is coming up this next month and I have told your child what color T- shirt he/she should wear on that day. The colors are: yellow, red, blue, or green

*I sent home the 2016-2017 Student Enrollment Form in your child’s coyote folder last Friday. Please fill it out as soon as possible and return it to school. I have only received about half of them back as of yet.
