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 33

Dear Parents,
            What a great week! The second graders learned so much about water safety and swimming! They also had a blast! Look at our classroom blog for pictures of this fun learning activity!
             We finished up our math unit on geometry and have begun measuring. We are estimating in inches, yards and feet! In reading we have read the story, Half Chicken and took our assessment on Friday. In language we’ve been working on special Mother’s Day cards and writing. Prepare to be surprised on Sunday! :) In science we have begun food chains.  In social Studies we are continuing our Bell Books about American Landmarks and symbols. Spelling list will still be going home each Monday. We have also begun end of year testing in all areas. Please make sure your child gets to school on time and is present if at all possible, so that we may finish the year strong! Thank you To Mrs. Barton, Mrs. Lundrigan, and Veronica Urena for working on our pillow project! Another thank you to Mr. Garrett for being willing to work with paint and 7-8 year olds! :)


*Your child will be bringing home a packet to complete an animal habitat and report at home. They have already chosen their animal. No need to go out and buy anything! Your child may take construction paper, tagboard, and white paper to draw on to create their habitat. This project should be child created. Usually shoe stores have extra shoe boxes that they will give you. Research for the animal can be on the internet or take them to the library to get a book!
