Wednesday is “Smart is the new cool so dress cool” day! I look forward to seeing all of my cool kids!
Also, one more reminder that tomorrow is EARLY RELEASE day at 11:30. If your child is getting home a different way than normal, please feel free to write me a note, email, or call me to let me know of changes. Thank you!
Today the students enjoyed dressing up as their favorite hero! We have so many different people around us who influence us and are our heros.
Parent, reminder that tomorrow is EARLY RELEASE at 11:30. 2nd grade will eat lunch at 10:20. If you don’t mind, please choose a different day to eat with your child. We all appreciate your help and understanding with this matter!
Don’t forget that tomorrow begins Red Ribbon Week! Tomorrow we wear red. Pictures to come at the end of the week!! 🙂
An order form for pictures is coming home today in folders. All students will take pictures tomorrow regardless if you are ordering a package. SMILE! 🙂
We have had an outstanding first week of school together! We have learning and practiced many times on what it looks like and sounds like to be a second grader. Your child has worked very hard this week, and I am very proud of them. A few things we have learned this week are: a few of our literacy center rotations including library, technology, and pocket chart; Number Talks – working on our mental math and sharing our thinking; doubles and sum in addition; problem solving – learning to show our thinking on paper. This week we have also learned new songs and took “Brain Breaks” and danced many fun dances.
I hope you enjoy your long weekend together. Remember, no school on Monday. I am so glad to have your child in my class!

So, life in second grade has been flying by! Can you believe that we are almost into March? We have been learning, growing, and having fun. A few things to note:
-Tomorrow we have lunch at 12:00. If you are planning to eat with your child, please note the change.
-Parent conference forms were sent home today. Please look over them and send back letting me know if the time schedule will work. The conferences are next Tuesday, March 5th.
-Report cards come home tomorrow.
I am excited to meet with you soon and am looking forward to finishing up this year with great success!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break! It is always a wonderful thing to be able to spend time with family and friends giving thanks for the things we have.
We have three weeks after this week before the Christmas break. Be looking for letters coming home about your part in helping with the Christmas party. We are looking forward to a fun and exciting time during the Christmas season!
This week we are talking about space. We are having to write a story about space and we are having some fun experiments!!!!!! (Anna)
Be on the look out for graded papers that came home today. This week we have been learning about weather. We charted weather facts about the sun, rain, wind, clouds, and snow. We also did a rain experiment and went outside one day and drew what we saw in the clouds.
We also have been discussing the fact that good readers visualize what they are reading. Yesterday I read the book A Picture for Harold’s Room to the students. While I was reading it to them, they had to draw a picture of what they heard me read. They had a good time with this activity! Look for that paper to be in your child’s folder today.
Tomorrow is Friday! Remember if you are picking your child up for the pep rally, make sure and send a note! 🙂
Today we did an experiment about rain. Pictures to come. We went to computer lab. In writing we made a web about Halloween, and tomorrow we are going to start writing a Halloween story. We did our rotations in math and reading. We did our Target Reading and Calendar Folder. – Averi
Parents, don’t forget that Wednesday is picture day! Look for the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts notes that came home today. Those meetings are tomorrow night.
