Tiger PawPeterson Elementary School Home of the Tigers!
                   TigerMission Statement:  "Believe It! Achieve It!"                                                                           
Reading is the foundation to your child's education.  Please encourage 
your child to read at least 30 minutes each night.

To become good math students, practice is necessary.  Information is given in class daily that may assist students with assignments.  If additional help is needed websites are listed at the bottom of the page which may be of assistance.  If a computer is not available my contact information is also listed at the bottom of the page and I will do my best to make myself available when convenient for parents and student.
Homework Expectations:
Homework will be given in class each day.   There is no homework on the weekend.  However, please encourage your child to continue to read nightly.
If there is ever a problem with an assignment encourage your child to
do their best to complete it.  In case of a family emergency or sickness please write a note and have your child make up his/her work as soon as the situation permits.

Each Student Must:

  • Try to answer all questions
  • Show all work on separate paper, in pencil,                         
  • Show answers on the homework sheet                                                                                      



In second grade, the students will be learning a variety of concepts. 
Our curriculum is based on the Common Core State Standards found at
the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction http://www.corestandards.org/the-standards .

Ongoing Reminders

1. Math homework is to be done in the spiral. Always head the paper correctly. Start at the RED margin, and do not "squish" your work to fit on the page. Circle the question number.

2. Skip lines between questions.

3. Show work! Check your work! Be proud of your work!

4. File all math papers in your Math Folder.
