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,
                   The year is winding down as we started the last 3 week grading period. We are learning many new skills in math. This week we focused on measuring with inches, feet, yards, centimeters, and meters. We also began analyzing graphs. In writing we were learning about prefixes, suffixes, and wrote our end of year writing sample to be scored. In reading we filled out some reading packets independently and focused on the different types of poetry. This focus will continue into next week. In science we finished up animal characteristics and began learning about food chains with vocabulary like consumers, producers, herbivores, omnivores, and carnivores. In Social Studies we were learning about our local government, our state government and our federal government. It was a good week of learning although I missed being with my class on Monday and Tuesday while I was giving the STAAR test to 4th graders.
      
Yearbooks are here! If you ordered a yearbook, it will be sent home Friday, May 12th! We have a limited number of extra copies for sale in the front office. The cost is $30 and checks can be made out to Coyote Ridge Elementary. These are first come, first served. If you have any questions, you may contact Mrs. Watts at wattsbm@lisd.net
           


  • This is a reminder that The animal projects are due next Wednesday. The children will be presenting on Wednesday and Thursday. We will have a gallery walk to see all the second grade projects. We can’t wait to see how creative your child has been in creating their animal habitat. The reports will be interesting to the class as well. We all love animals.
  • May 19th is the last day students can charge a lunch in the cafeteria
  • Many children have library books out. Please send them back as soon as possible.
  • 3 Week progress reports are available on skyward. If you request a paper copy through skyward one is being sent home. Please encourage your child to finish strong. I have noticed that grades are dropping for some students. Summer fever has struck. Please talk to your children about doing their best each day. We have so much yet to learn in these last three weeks together. :)
