Spring break is a great time to clean out your child’s backpack and Bravo Binder. Have a wonderful time enjoying your special child!
Thank you to everyone who came to the second grade evening. Hopefully, you will enjoy the pictures. It was a marvelous experience for all. Art and Spanish were wonderful too!
Happy New Year to all of you. It is so great to be back at school. I hope everyone had a fantastic, safe and healthy break. It’s hard to believe that we are almost half way through the school year. YIKES – how quickly it is growing and how fast your children are growing up. I hope you enjoy the pictures that I took today of the class doing a science experiment.
Looking ahead: No school – Monday and Tuesday – January 16 and 17

Read-a-thon is currently going on. I encourage all students to participate.
Report cards will go out the week of January 30.
Please remember to have your child prepared to go outside for recess and gym – weather permitting.
Happy New Year!
Looking back at the year I can’t help but think of all the fun that we had in Room 32. The children have matured, grown, and learned new concepts. It has been a wonderful year. I truly wish you all a most fantastic and relaxing summer. I look forward to seeing all the new THIRD GRADERS next year!
Thank you for everything you have done to make my year very special. All of you have been wonderful. I hope you enjoy the slideshows that I am attaching. What amazing and great children you have!
Where is the time going? It is already time for spring break. The year is flying by and I am happy to report that the class is fantastic. The biography projects were amazing. I hope you enjoy the slide show. Each child was an absolute star. Thank you for your continued support! We all learned so much.
Happy Spring Break to all! Enjoy your time with your special child.
Thank you so much for comlng to the Writing Celebration. It meant so much to all of the children that you listened to their story. They worked very hard on them. Have a wonderful weekend!
This class is wonderful! We have had 2 fantastic and wonderful field trips. We have/are establishing routines, introduced and are implementing the “Daily Four”, are working daily in Writing Workshop, and are becoming math wizards. We respect each other and have fun at school.
Please enjoy the following slide shows of activities thus far this year!
I always encourage book reports. Two are required per month and after 10 have been turned in there is a reward. I know your children are reading every night. Please encourage them to do a book report after each book read.
Thank you for signing (initialing) and looking at the Bravo Binders. This is a daily check in for you and your child on homework and behavior. Each morning I look to see if a parent has signed their child’s binder. If so, the student will receive a Good Behavior Award. Please review your child’s homework with them. If you have a question about it, please let me know and I will address your concerns.
Thanks for a wonderful beginning to the school year! Happy Fall~
It’s hard to believe we are beginning the last six weeks of second grade! As part of our math curriculum we have adopted a third grade unit from Investigations. At the present time, we are beginning Unit 3 – Collections and Travel Stories – Addition, Subtraction, and the Number System 2. We will be adding and subtraction numbers up to 1,000 and of course solving many word problems! Please enjoy the slideshow of the class sorting through some collection data!
Spring MAP testing will be next week – Tuesday, May 5, and Wednesday, May 6 in the morning. We will begin at 8:30. It is an un-timed test. Please make sure your child is well-rested and has had a healthy breakfast.
Enjoy the wonderful weather this week!
