Welcome to Team Pertile!

Hi!  My name is Mrs. Pertile and I am so happy to be your child's teacher this year.   This is my 11th year teaching at Blackhawk and I am looking foward to a great year!   2nd Grade is awesome!!!
Please check  out our website often.  I am always adding new learning websites and updating pictures of our school year!
In English Language Arts, the students will focus on developing comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, phonics, and reading fluency skills.  They will learn various phonics patterns to help them decode and spell words.  Throughout the year, students will work to improve their reading fluency and also learn reading strategies to enable them to increase their reading and listening comprehension.  They will also learn different parts of speech and apply them to their everyday writing. 
Math instruction builds throughout the school year.  The Math Standards are taught in accordance with the report card.  Each 9-weeks our focus is on different skills.  Students will learn many concepts such as addition and subtraction with regrouping, money, telling time, measurement, graphing, and geometry
Throughout the school year, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to e-mail mat at anytime,

2nd Quarter Highlights!

The school year is halfway over!  We are getting ready to celebrate the 100th day of school!!!  We can't believe how fast the year is passing by!  
In ELA, we continue to read fiction and nonfiction books, work on plot, discuss setting and characters, make predictions, and locate information.  We just finished our narrative writings, where we worked on main idea and good detailed sentences, always remembering capital letters and punctuation.  It was fun to write about ourselves!
In math, we have been counting money and using it in word problems.  We have also been adding and subtracting multi-digit problems with regrouping.  We practice telling time and place value weekly during our morning work time.  We have also been flying through our daily math facts!
AR reading continues to be going strong.  The student goal is 2 books/tests a week.  We are trying to earn monthly prizes as well as reach Mrs. Borroni's Readers Reef levels!  
Lastly, we starting learning how to write in cursive!  Now that is some fancy writing!
