Hello my name is Miss Tousignant (to-sing-ya). I have been teaching K-2 for 17 years in the ASD. I am very excited to be working with your child in second grade this year as I loop up. This year will be an adventure. At Bayshore we use the Houghton Mifflin reading program. It concentrates on the five key areas of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency. In addition, a weekly reading log will be sent home for your child to record their 30 minutes of reading each night. Writing: we use the 6-Traits of Writing. In Math: We will be using the Everyday Mathematics program. The focus for second grade includes numbers and numeration, computation, data collection, measurement, geometry, and patterns. Spelling: Weekly spelling listsfrom the HM, will be sent home with students in the Friday folders. These spelling lists can be used for preparation for the weekly spelling tests at the end of the following week. Science: This year, student will be studying the life cycle of plants, the characteristics and behavior of soil, and the investigation of sound. Social Studies: The focus for second grade is Anchorage Past and Present. We will learn about the Municipality of Anchorage and the people who helped shape the community. Friday Folders: At the end of each week, your child will be bringing home a Friday Folder. This folder will contain information such as newsletters, student work, permission slips, and homework. Please review all information with your child, keep important papers, and then return the folder to school. I look forward to working with you and your child. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by phone at 742-5360 or by e-mail at tousignant_yvette@asdk12.org
