Welcome to Mrs. Brubaker's 2nd Grade!
My name is Natalie Brubaker and I live in Castle Pines with my husband and my two sweet boys. My oldest will be starting at American Academy this year in kindergarten, so I am very excited to have him at school with me. In our free time we like to hike, camp, swim and now that it is football season, watch the Broncos! My summer was spent playing with my two boys and enjoying some travels. I love being part of the American Academy Community and can't wait to watch all of our 2nd graders grow this year!

Spelling
All spelling tests are taken on Thursdays. The students will take a pretest on Monday. If the student receives 100% on the pretest, then he/she does not need to take the test on Thursday. The student will also be able to pick out of the treasure box. Those students not receiving 100% should practice their Spelling words 4 times within the week. Please complete the spelling bee tracker sheet and return on Thursdays. For every 5th signed spelling bee tracker sheet, the students will receive a prize out of the treasure box. Suggestions for spelling practice can be found on the 2nd grade website under downloads. Also, additional spelling bee tracker sheets can be found on my page under downloads.
Phonograms
We practice our phonograms Monday through Thursday and take our phonogram quizes on Fridays. On my webpage there is a link to a youtube video that can help with this.
Library Sign Up
This year we will be visiting the library with our literacy classes. If your child is in Ms. Brubaker's literacy class, please check out our library helper sign-up sheet to volunteer during some of our library visits. We have library on Mondays. Please do not bring younger siblings to this volunteer opportunity. Thank you for helping us during this fun weekly visit!

SRA Homework
This week I sent home a new Literacy Assignment. It is an SRA mini book. Please have your child read the mini story and then answer the questions directly on the SRA book. This is an independent assignment. Please allow your child to complete it to the best of his/her ability. The SRA book will be due on Monday's, just like Fluency. This is taking the place of Fluency this week.
