Welcome to Mrs. Stanley's Second Grade Classroom! 

Announcements

Week of 10/21-10/25
Another wonderful week in second grade! I am enjoying seeing all of the students start to show their personalities more and more every day. Please make sure to continue talking with your child about behavior expectations in the classroom.  

**Be sure to ask them what their reading goal is! (Answer: May vary, I have given out new goals this week to each student) They should be asking themselves, what happened on each page and who was on each page, to check for understanding (to make sure they are comprehending what they are reading.) I made sure to explain to them that doing this will help them become a better reader. 


Good afternoon parents/ guardians!

 

 We have had a very productive week in second grade! We had to revisit our classroom rules this week (the rules that were created and “signed” by the students.) We had a conversation about continuing our classroom expectations each day. As it begins to get colder outside, please make sure to send a jacket with your child for recess. We will continue to go outside to recess for as long as we can, but if a student has short sleeves on and no jacket, they will have to sit in another teacher’s classroom if the temperature is below 40. A field trip permission form will be sent home in your child’s folder this afternoon. Second grade will be traveling to the Museum of Life and Science on November 12th. All the information about the trip will be on the paper sent home today. Also, our October birthday celebration will not be held on the last Friday of the month, instead we will combine it with our Halloween celebration on Thursday. The students will make a Halloween craft during this time, and the October birthdays will also be recognized. 

I hope to see you all at the fall festival tonight!! 

Have a great weekend!!! 

Mrs. Stanley 


 



 

Homework is due, completed, every Friday. Baggy books are also due back every Friday. The homework and baggy books will go home every Monday. Please make sure your child is completing and returning their homework on Friday, as this is taken for a great, and it will help them become better readers and better mathematicians! 

Just a reminder, we do have our Ice Cream days on Wednesday, and the cafeteria will not charge the account this year, there has to be money in the account or money sent in for ice cream. 

 

 

 

It is very important for your child to be reading for 20 minutes a night on their independent reading level, and answering comprehension questions about the book. (The question booklet will be sent home with the baggy books Tuesday.)

 

 

Please remember to wear tennis shoes on PE days, which are Mondays and Thursdays. 

 

I will also be adding more grades in to PowerSchool this weekend, if you are having trouble getting in to PowerSchool please let me know.

 

 

 

 

If you haven't sent in headphones, please try to do so at your earliest convenience, so they have them for their listening center. 

 

 

Thank you so much for all of the supplies that have been sent in, we really appreciate it! If you have not sent in your students individual supplies yet, please do so at your earliest convenience. Please also make sure all emergency forms are turned in to the office. 


Ice cream this year will be different than in the past. Students will only be able to get ice-cream if there is money in their account, or they bring in the money, there will be no charging for ice cream this year. We will do ice-cream as a class on Wednesday afternoons.  



Our lunch time is 11:00 - 11:25 this year and because of the schedule it does not leave us time to have snack in the morning. However if they do want a snack, during our D.E.A.R (drop everything and read) time is when we will do snack time. Bringing a snack is not required so please do not feel that your child needs to bring one. Please refrain from bringing anything with peanuts or nuts because we do have an allergy in the classroom. We will do ice-cream in the afternoon on Wednesdays at the same time as snack. 


If there is a change in the way that your student is being picked up PLEASE email me or send me a message on Dojo I will check both.
