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 34

Dear Parents,
        We finished up our end of the year testing in reading and writing this week. We will soon be tested on our Spelling stages as well as the end of the year CBA in math. Please help by encouraging your child to stay focused and ready for school each morning. It is easy to let summer dreams creep in a little early! We want to finish strong! 
        In math we have been measuring in inches, feet, yards, centimeters and meters. We have also used nonconventional tools like blocks and paper clips. In language we have taken our pronoun assessment and are beginning a unit on poetry which will continue in reading and language next week. In science we have been learning about animal characteristics and behaviors. We are also creating our own super animal! We continue to work on our bell book and map skills for social studies.
         We have been excited about our ePortfolios. Most students have entered three items with a video explaining why they chose that piece or project and which 21st century skill it shows! My new students will have at least one entry and video. This portfolio will be added to each year until your child graduates!
               

*Your child will be brought 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! These are due next Wednesday!
