What a great first week we had in 2nd grade! We read some wonderful back to school books, got to learn more out about our classmates, and learned a lot of new routines and procedures. Everyone now has a leadership role in the classroom to go along with our school's Leader in Me program. We finished our class mission statement and signed it to ensure we try our best everyday at school. The students came up with this on their own and I think it sounds great. See the picture below to read our mission statement.

I want to thank everyone for making sure your child had his or her supplies by the first day of school. It really made our Monday a lot easier since everyone was prepared and had what they needed.

Next week we will start more academic activities, like place value and matter. We introduced a little bit of place value on Friday and let students play with the base ten blocks so they won't be tempted to play with them next week when it is time to learn! We will also be talking about what good readers and writers do.  We have our first light bulb lab, media center visit, and guidance lesson all next week as well!

Don't forget we have Open House on Thursday at 6:00 pm. This is where I will go into further detail about academic expectations for the year, homework, and our behavior plan. Hopefully I  can also answer any questions you may have. See you then!
