Second Grade

Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year!

We are enjoying having your child in our second grade classes this year.  Our philosophy is making learning enjoyable and fun while maintaining high expectations.  Your child may access and utilize the online resources that include Reflex Math, Compass Learning, Headsprout, Imagine Learning, Study Island, and Raz Kids. All of these websites can be found by clicking on this link: http://thornton.tisd.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=356894&type=d&pREC_ID=771736

We value parent involvement and if you have any questions please contact your child's second grade teacher by calling 215-5700. Our conference time is 9:50-10:50.

Please continue to help your child grow by working on the following skills:

  • Study spelling words (Test every Friday)
  • Reading 20 minutes each night (Log daily in their Reading Log)
  • Math homework
  • Fact Fluency (Using Reflex Math - Addition and Subtraction facts to 18)
  • All homework for all subjects is due on Friday.
 Preparing for School:
  • If your child will be riding the bus, check the Transportation Department webpage for more information. You can reach them at 215-6973.
  • To maximize learning, make sure your child is at school every day and on time.  Students with no tardies and perfect attendance are recognized at the end of each six weeks.
