Welcome to 2nd Grade! I am so excited to have you in my class this year! We are going to have a great school year together!
When I am not at school I love to
dance, swim and play pickle ball
with my husband. My favorite food
My belief is that the classroom can run best when teachers, students and parents all work together! I believe that we are all on the same team and all want what is best for your student!
All supplies will be provided to every student. If you would like to donate supplies to the classroom that would be appreciated but completely voluntary!
In our class we follow the Big 3: Respectful, Responsible and Safe. When students follow these rules they may earn Kindness Cash that can be redeemed in the office, or Class Pennies that can be redeemed in our classroom treasure box!
Class Rules: 1. Follow adult directions the first time. 2. Keep hands, feet and objects to yourself. 3. Follow the appropriate voice level. 4. Raise your hand and wait to be called on to speak.
Using these class rules plus following the Big 3 (Respectful, Responsible and Safe) my goal is to help all students feel successful and safe in our classroom.
Homework: There is NO homework in my classroom. I encourage each student to read for 20 minutes every night, either with someone or independently!
Reading/Language Arts Jordan School District uses the Journeys program. It is a great program that helps students learn comprehension skills, writing skills, and grammar skills that are all connected to one story each week.
Run to Disneyland Every day 2nd grade will go out and run for 5 minutes. By the end of the year we would have run the distance it would take for us to go from West Jordan to Disneyland! We then have a Disney party in May.
Math We will be using a lot of student discussions in math to help students stay engaged and active in their learning.
Computers Every student will have access to his/her own computer and headphones. Some of the programs students will use are Canvas, Epic, Nearpod, Think Central, Prodigy and Freckle to name a few.
Some treats that I use as incentives, rewards, etc in the classroom are Starburst, Laffy Taffy, Jolly Ranchers and Airheads. Please let me know if your child is not able to have any of these and we can coordinate another reward for them.
