Field Day

WOW! The second graders are excited for our Friday Field Day adventures. Today, we were able to make some cool tie-dye t-shirts to share our class spirit. Thank you to Mrs. Dulski and Mrs. Dolan for coming in to help the children with their colorful creations.


The shirts will get washed and returned by Wednesday. Please save them as we will wear them to our future field trips.


To pack for Friday:


  • Running Shoes
  • Sack Lunch
  • Water Bottle
  • Snack
  • Warm clothes- just in case!

Book Bags

Second graders seem to love our small reading groups and opportunities for individual conferring sessions. During our literacy centers, I'm able to listen and confer with students. It's during these sessions that I'm able to promote our targets (informational text features, questioning as we read and gathering information).

Students will not always have a new book bag book but they need to go home nightly and be returned daily. Re-reading a book for fluency and accuracy is a must in second grade. Deeply thinking about the author's purpose is also encouraged. Thank you for supporting the goal of reading 20 minutes nightly. Please help your second grader to remember to come to class prepared to learn with their book bag and reading log.

The READ-A-THON is starting this week and students will be able to ROCK the READ-A-THON because they already have awesome reading habits. Just like Virgina Apgar and Harriet Tubman. . .they persist!

Parent-Teacher Conferences

What a pleasure it was to meet with you during our conference time. Thank you for taking the time to share your child's strengths with me.

Central Idea-- Family time discussion.

People take risks to create change in the world.


Key Concepts: Reflective and Perspective


We are focusing on inventors and risk-takers that have changed the world. At home, share some of your heroines or heroes. Thank you Sleeper family for sharing the wonderful book, "She Persisted" with our class! We really enjoyed reading about Helen Keller and Sally Ride. If you have other examples to share with the class perhaps you could post them to our Google Classroom. Click the Central Idea topic and respond to our question.
