Thursday, May 17 Update:
For Friday, Arts Alive day, if you did not pre-order a BBQ lunch, you need to pack a lunch for your child. The school kitchen will be closed. There will be NO regular lunches to buy. Remember the BBQ lunch is a pre-ordered lunch. Students who do not bring their sack lunch will not be able to obtain a BBQ lunch. There is only enough for students who pre-ordered. Thank you :)
It's been a week! I am finally able to sit up and work on Edlio for the first time in three days. For those of you who may not know, I have been out sick since Wednesday, on Tuesday I was at a teacher training. This "cold", as the doctor diagnosed, was a bad one. I hope the kids are well and happy. I have been keeping contact with our room parents and Mrs. Kolb. I feel the light at the end of the tunnel and will be so happy to be back with my class on Monday!!! Thank you for all of your well-wishes and patience.
I was not at school to post the homework for next week. You may go to any other second grade class's Edlio to print. We all assign the same packet. I will post our Monday.
Thank you dearly to everyone for the most sweet and thoughtful teacher appreciation gifts and cards. I appreciate your appreciation. I celebrate my students and parents!!!
***In-class chattiness reminder: daily reminders from home help greatly for our kids to focus and keep their eye on the prize!!
-I would like to extend a special thank you to all the volunteer parents who have come forward to help out our arrival and dismissal organization. They are running things so immaculately professional! I feel that our school is not only organized during this time, but so much more safe! Kudos to them!!
-REFLEX MATH: Suggested: Please practice for an average of about 30-45 minutes per week. Reach the "Green Light" every time you practice your facts. Flash cards are a great alternative to online fact practice.
-Homework: Please print out your second grader's homework every week. The homework packet will be uploaded by Monday weekly. Follow instructions given on the packet cover page.
Hot Topic oral reports are posted for the entire year and each presentation is due by the end of the month with a posting to announce which one.
-"Typing Club" has been an effective online site to use for practicing typing skills. Finger placement on the keyboard and eyes to screen accuracy are most important, not speed. Practice weekly to gain fluency.
