A few facts about me are, I attended St. Bernadette grammar school, Mother McAuley High School & I graduated from St. Xavier University. My husband Bob and I are the proud parents of two beautiful children, Bobby & Maeve. In my free time, I love being with my family & friends.  My favorite Chicago teams are the Cubs, Hawks & Bears.

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend, despite all the rain today! I can’t even believe we are starting week 9 of remote learning!!! How did that even happen?? Your children are doing an amazing job with their lessons! I’m so proud of ALL they are doing! Keep up the GREAT work! Here’s a peek at the week:

In spelling, we’ll have a couple activities to do on compound words & syllables. Our reading lessons this week will focus on cause & effect. There will be a story paired with an activity to go with it. Reminder: students will also need to pass 4 ARs for the month of May. Keep on reading everyday!! In math, we’ll be reviewing addition & subtraction with and without regrouping this week. Our science activities will be on weather. The new Religion chapter is “We Act on God’s Word.”  Our weekly Zoom call will take place on Thursday. We’ll have field trip Friday & catch up day, as usual. Please make sure to check your child’s PowerSchool to see their progress. I have entered numerical grades, along with I or M, for incomplete or missing. If you notice your child has an I or M, it doesn’t necessarily mean they didn’t do it. It could be that it wasn’t posted OR I could’ve missed it as well. These wonderful children have completed and uploaded over 1,500 assignments, drawings, pictures, videos and audio recordings since the middle of March. It could be on my end. If there is an assignment that needs to be sent in, please do so in SeeSaw and make sure the picture is clear and I can see what’s being sent. Thank you in advance! Finally, we will not have school on Monday, in honor of Memorial Day! Lessons will be sent out for Tuesday-Friday. Have a wonderful week and stay well!!

What a beautiful weekend we had! I hope you were able to get out & soak up the sun!! We were so sad we weren’t able to celebrate First Holy Communion on Saturday, but please know, I was thinking of you & praying for you! It was so fun going out on deliveries & seeing so many of you. When the time comes, it’s going to be beautiful! Here’s a look at the week ahead...

In spelling, we are working on unit 32, sh digraphs. We will also continue the process of writing a narrative. Our two reading stories are “Start Collecting, It’s Fun” and “The Puddle Pail.”  Also, for reading, children will need to complete 4 ARs this month. I usually suggest students take one per week, so they don’t fall too far behind. In math, we will be measuring & estimating in meters and centimeters. Our religion chapter this week is “We Listen to God’s Word.” Remember that Fridays are field trip days & catch up days! Our Zoom calls will take place on Thursday afternoons, moving forward. An email invitation will be sent ahead of time. 
 

Daily assignments will be emailed Sunday-Thursday. Lessons will consist of reading, writing & SeeSaw activities. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. I’m happy to help!!

Welcome to the first day of the 2nd Trimester.  Time flies when you’re having fun!  Report cards are going home on Wednesday.  Please take a minute to review your son or daughter’s accomplishments this past trimester.  I know how hard they are trying, and I am proud of all their hard work.  Please sign the envelope & return it on Thursday.  The report card is yours to keep.  Here is what we’re doing in class:  we will start a Thanksgiving paper this week in english class.  There will also be a DOL quiz on Thursday or Friday.  The 15 spelling words are:  safe, day, rain, say, play, ate, stay, save, may, wait, been, friends, show, since, & those.  In reading, we have 2 stories from our reading book.  “How I Beat the Giants” and “Play Ball.”  Children should read “Play Ball” out loud Wednesday night for homework.  We’ll continue with guided reading and theme based centers this week as well.  Keep up the good work with AR’s!!  It’s important that children read everyday so they don’t fall too far behind on their AR requirements.  I will send home a current sheet of their November ARs tomorrow.  This week we continue 2 digit addition with and without regrouping.  Practicing a couple problems each night and reviewing the steps will be helpful.  There will be a short quiz on Wednesday.  I will have a 3 minute timed addition and subtraction fact sheet one day this week as well.  In science, we will learn all about plants and their parts.  In religion, we will finish chapter 5 and begin chapter 6 “Celebrate God’s Forgiveness.”  A couple notes:  Special lunch forms are due tomorrow.  Santa’s Busy Bakery sheets are due Friday.  Conferences are scheduled for next week.  You should have your date and time already confirmed.  If you have a question, just let me know!  I’m looking forward to meeting with all of you!  There will be half days on both Monday and Tuesday of next week.  Have a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  I’m thankful to have the opportunity to teach your children each day.  Enjoy time with your family & loved ones.

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a nice weekend!  We have a really busy week ahead of us.  In english, we continue to work on nouns.  We will learn about how to write titles and dates (Mr. Mrs. Dr.), discuss compound words, and write more exact nouns.  Next week, we will review for the test, which will be Thursday.  The 15 spelling words this week are wink, sing, sink, king, long, ring, hang, bank, wing, drink, almost, another, around, food & under.  4 x each is homework tonight.  The two reading stories this week are “Furry Mouse” and “Two Mice”.  The homework story Wednesday night is “Two Mice”.  Don’t forget that students must have passed 4 AR quizzes for this month.  We have 9 school days left in October.  I will be taking a “classwork” grade for AR.  If students pass 4 or more, they will earn 40/40.  If they pass only 3 quizzes, they will have 30/40 for the month, and so on.  In math, we are working on related facts, subtraction facts, filling in bar models, and writing number sentences to solve word problems.  There will be a short mid chapter check quiz tomorrow.  Being fluent in addition and subtraction problems will help the students be successful.  Practicing flashcards at home, apps on the ipad or playing Math Magician online are just some examples of how to practice.  In science, we will start learning about plants.  In religion, we’ll identify heroes in our world, recognize that Saints help us to follow Jesus, and also we will read the scripture story about the good man from Samaria.  A few notes for the week…tomorrow our school will have a practice lockdown drill.  We will be discussing this ahead of time.  Wednesday the City of Chicago will present safe walking and biking tips to the 2nd graders.  Finally, on Friday, our school will also practice a bus evacuation drill.  Enjoy the week!

Week of October 15th

Posted on Oct 15, 2019

Happy Tuesday!  Hope you had a nice LONG weekend.  Back to work here in 214.  As usual, we have many things planned this week.  In english we continue to work on nouns.  This week, we will learn about special nouns that need capital letters.  I also have a DOL quiz planned for this Thursday OR Friday.  The 15 spelling words this week are:  flat, glass, plant, dress, front, bring, grass, glad, clap, class, because, carry, don’t, goes & whole.  4 x each is homework.  The test is on Friday.  The two reading stories this week are “Eye Spy” and “Seeing”.  Children will read “Seeing” tomorrow for homework.  Please sign the planner after your child has read aloud.  We are already two weeks into October.  Children are loving the AR program and doing a terrific job!!  I think that encouraging kids to take one quiz a week is a good pace to stay on.  That way, students won’t fall behind.  If your child has completed their requirements for the month, they’ll have 40/40 posted in Power School.  Remember, the library is open most days before and after school to take quizzes.  A detailed letter was sent home on Friday with your child about ARs.  Please let me know if you need another copy.  In math, will began chapter 3 today in class.  Children will be reviewing doubles, doubles plus 1, making a 10, and adding 3 addends.  Keep practicing those flashcards or apps.  Fact fluency is really important!!  We’re learning all about landforms, and bodies of water this week in social studies.  In science, we’ll continue learning about the parts of a plant.  Our 7th graders are hosting an all school mass on Friday at 1:00.  ALL are welcome.  Speaking of mass, the First Communion Enrollment Mass is this Sunday at 10:00.  We would love to have all the second graders in attendance.  Hope to see you there!

Week of October 7th

Posted on Oct 07, 2019

Happy Monday!!  I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  We are very busy this week in class.  Here is what we’ll be working on…in english class, we are just about finished with our narrative papers.  We will also begin learning all nouns.  The 15 spelling words this week are:  chalk, fall, wall, talk, ball, walk, small, tall, call, all, keep, new, mother, myself and warm.  4 x each is homework and the test will be Friday.  In reading, we’ll be working in our reading books again this week.  Our two stories are “The Ugly Duckling” and “Duck.”  The homework story Wednesday is “Duck.”  We are off to a great start for Accelerated Reading!  The kids are welcome to take AR quizzes in the library before or after school, or in my classroom during reading or inside recess.  Bookadventure.com is a great FREE site that kids can take practice quizzes on.  You will need to set up a user name & password first. Also, arbookfind.com is a nice site to bookmark if you are checking to see if books are on the AR list.  Just a reminder that students must take & pass 4 quizzes each month – 70% or higher.  This will be counted each month in their final reading grade.  It’s a good idea to bring the book they are quizzing on so they can search the site for their book.  (This saves us on time searching for which book they read.)  There is also a website where you can sign up for emails if you’re interested in keeping track of your child’s progress:  https://hosted104.renlearn.com/180523/HomeConnect/Login.aspx

We will be ready for our chapter 2 test in math on Wednesday.  Look for the book and flashcards to go home tomorrow.  Please go over the practice test we complete together in class.  This will be VERY similar to the test.  In social studies, we will begin chapter 2 “Our Earth.”  We’ll learn the chapter vocabulary, cause and effect, and identify landforms and bodies of water.  In science we continue studying the needs of living things.  In religion, we’ll finish our chapter on Baptism.  If you are interested in ordering from Scolastic, those orders are due Friday.  Finally, there is no school Monday in honor of Columbus Day!  Whew!!  I think that is enough for now : )

Enjoy the week!!

Week of September 3rd

Posted on Sep 03, 2019

Happy Tuesday!!! A detailed welcome back letter was posted on my blog last week.  Thank you for looking those over, signing and returning them.  If you have any questions, please let me know.  I do post a blog every Monday (or Tuesday if we are off) so you can be aware of what we are working on each week.   We’ve been working really hard and learning the routines here in 214.  We’re off to a great start!  Here is what we’ll be working on this week.  Our first chapter in english discusses being good listeners and speakers, and also the four types of sentences.  This week, we’ll discuss statements, questions, commands & exclamations.  We have 15 spelling words this week:  send, bell, well, help, fell, went, spell, next, tell, end, live, made, people, taste, & your.  4 x each is homework tonight.  We have 10 words that come from our spelling book, and 5 words that come from the reading stories each week.  4 x each is homework every Monday, unless we don’t have school, then we’ll do it Tuesday.  Our spellings tests are each Friday.  If children use capital letters inappropriately, or write letters backwards, the word will be marked wrong.  Last week, I did not mark words wrong with capital letters, this week, I will.  Each week, in reading class, we will be reading two stories.  This week, we are reading “The Wobbly People in Ellen’s Blockhouse” and “Poppleton and the Grapefruit.”  The reading book will go home once a week, usually Wednesday night, for the students to read a story for homework.  The homework story is always the second story.  I’d ask that you please sign the planner after your child has read the story out loud.  This Wednesday’s story to read aloud is “Poppleton”.  Every Friday, the kids will take a vocabulary/comprehension quiz that I will take for a grade out of 10 points.  Along with our weekly quizzes, we will also be doing 1 extended response question.  The children and I will be doing these together for a while.  You will start to see the acronym SLAM on your child's papers.  Accelerated Reading will begin in October.  More details to follow.  Your child should also be reading 15 minutes each night as part of their daily homework.   In math, we are learning about number concepts.  Children should expect to have homework about 4 nights a week.  The homework will reflect that day’s lesson.  The kids are off to a good start so far, but I’ve seen some problems being skipped & backwards numbers.  Those will be marked wrong.  I have gone over this with the kids & will continue to remind them to check & double check their work.  Students should be practicing their addition & subtraction facts too.  In the first trimester, students should be fluent in facts up to 12.  One day this week, we’ll have our 3 minute timed test on addition and subtraction facts.  The math lessons this week are different ways to show a number, finding a pattern to solve word problems, and counting by 1’s, 5’s, and 10’s.  We’ll be ready one day next week for our first chapter test.  Stay tuned for details.  In social studies, we are learning about “Where We Live” (Chapter 1).  We will be going over our vocabulary words, & learning about context clues, and living in a neighborhood.  In religion class, we will start chapter 1 “Our Church Welcomes Us.”  A couple reminders…Wednesday is Open House!  There will be a presentation in church at 6:30, followed by a short in class presentation in our room (214).  Please stop in our room to say hi & see what we’re working on!   We do collect box tops, so feel free to send those in too.  (You can also download the app, and earn money for SJF by scanning your receipts.)  Our first all school mass is this Friday at 1:00pm.  ALL are welcome!  I hope you have a wonderful week.  If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.  I’m looking forward to a great year with you and your child!!

Welcome!

Posted on Aug 26, 2019

Dear Parents,

Welcome to the start of the 2019-2020 school year for your second grader at St. John Fisher School!  We are looking forward to a great year of learning with your child.  There are a few things we would like to go over with you concerning the curriculum, classroom rules, and homework policy.   After reading this letter, please fill out the form at the end and return it as soon as possible.

Religion

Besides our regular religion series, the children will be studying two sacraments this year.  The first is Reconciliation, which is scheduled for February 19, 2020.   The second is First Holy Communion which is scheduled for May 2, 2020.  Both of these sacraments are very important days in the life of your child and we look forward to preparing your child for them.  You will be given more information about these two special days as it becomes available.  Please encourage your child to attend Mass weekly as part of their preparation for the reception of these two sacraments.

English Language Arts

Our ELA curriculum will include grammar, phonics, writing and vocabulary.

Reading

The reading series is divided into different themes and the stories are entire selections from popular children’s authors. There are weekly comprehension assessments and extended response questions (SLAM) based on that week’s story.   Your child will bring the textbook home once a week so that they can review the story several times to prepare for the vocabulary and comprehension quizzes.  This year, we will introduce guided reading and small group work.  This will be practiced in a variety of ways throughout the year.  Beginning in October, we will start the Accelerated Reading Program.  A monthly grade will be recorded for Accelerated Reading.  More details to follow.

Spelling

There will be a weekly spelling test based on that week’s unit as well as an additional 5 challenge words from the reading story.  Students will write down their spelling words in their planner each Monday at school.  On Monday nights, students will have 4 x each for homework.  It would be helpful to give a practice test each week at home.  Words will be marked wrong if they are misspelled, if the letter is formed incorrectly, or if capitals letters are used inappropriately.

 

Science and Social Studies

The science curriculum includes the study of plants and animals, matter, ecosystems, and the earth’s place in the universe.  In social studies we will be studying communities, developing map skills, learning about local, state, and federal governments, and discussing Early American history.

Math

Our math series is Go Math.  The series is based on the common core standards.  One component is a nightly homework assignment.   An emphasis will be placed on explaining how student’s got their answer, not just the computation.  We will also be tracking student data through the use of Mad Minutes.  Next week, students will be given their first Mad Minute assessment for both addition and subtraction facts.  This will be done four times throughout the year. 

Handwriting

Manuscript writing will be reviewed during the first trimester.  Cursive writing will be taught after Christmas.  We will be covering the lower case letters only.

Our lunch is the second lunch period.  It is scheduled from 11:00 – 11:20.

Our special schedule is:

Monday – Art / Library (Alternating weeks)

Tuesday - Music

Wednesday -  Mass

Thursday -  Computer

Friday - Gym

 

Classroom Procedures

The classroom procedures have been explained and are reviewed regularly. If a child misbehaves

or misses a homework assignment they will miss 5 minutes of recess.

 

Homework

 

The homework assignments your child brings home each night are an important part of his/her

education. Homework provides students with opportunities to develop good study habits and

practice new skills. Please see the handbook in regards to extended absences, etc.  We will allow the student time when he/she returns to school to complete the missed assignments, tests, and homework.

 

Please check the student planner daily. We will check them daily to make sure spelling words and assignments are written down. Make sure to also check out our blogs each week.  There will be information posted weekly on what’s happening in our class!  Encourage your child to read at least 15 minutes each night. Please make sure your child has adequate supplies at all times. Pencils and crayons wear down, break and get lost. They need to be replaced often. 

 

If your child is absent please phone the office that morning and send a note explaining the absence when he/she returns to school. Your child must be fever free for 24 hours in order to return back to school. 

 

Birthdays are a very special day for your child.  We would love to celebrate their special day in class.  You are welcome to send in a birthday treat for them to share with the class.  Be mindful of student allergies please.  If your child is passing out birthday invitations to their classmates in school, they may do so if the whole class is invited, OR all the girls, or all the boys will be invited.  Otherwise, please pass out invitations outside of school. 

 

We are looking forward to a wonderful year of learning with your child. Our goal is to provide a safe, comfortable, and happy learning environment for your child.  Thank you for allowing us this opportunity to teach your child. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Karen Ade                        Mrs. Meghan Kellam                    Mrs. Carmen Briseno
