Thursday, May 25

Below are two links you may want to use this summer.  The first is to Symbaloo, our Keystone page of websites kids can use on your home computer.

The second is for those of you who used SeeSaw this year.  It gives instructions for how to save your child's content (if you want to).

I know that lots of stuff has been sent home in the last few days!  I tried to help them be organized by sending home locker stuff and summer work on Wednesday, and school supplies today, Thursday.

The Quote of the Month packet and Summer Work packet are important for you to see, as well as the report card!  Students don't have to bring a school bag on Friday.

I've enjoyed getting to know your child in 2nd grade.  It's been a great year!

May 13

With summer coming I thought I'd share this graphic about ways to question your child when they are reading.  Everything on this are things that we have done in 2nd grade, so it will be familiar to them.  I will make a paper copy of this and send home with some other ideas of things to do this summer.  I can't stress enough how important it is to avoid the "summer slide" which typically happens when kids don't do any reading, writing, or math in the summer months!  They will be so much more prepared for 3rd grade if they are held accountable for a little bit of "school" each day!

ABC Countdown for this week:

  • Monday, May 15th- Q, Quiet Day. Take time out of your day to do a quiet activity, such as yoga.

Move Up Day

On Tuesday, May 23 students will have a chance to spend some time in their 3rd grade classroom.  It's great way to give them a chance to meet their teacher and help prepare them for the next step in their education!
