Welcome to your class blog for the 2011-12 school year!
While you are here, be sure to sign up for email updates. Our class blog will be the site for information about school supplies, curriculum and assessment and much more. A school supply list will be posted on July 1. Later in the summer, I will provide information on the blog about the August open house.
Also, remember to sign up for email updates on the Georgetown School Blog. The school blog will provide updates all summer long about school wide events and important details about open houses and calendar dates.
If you would like to see a list of all the students in our classroom this year, click on the link below. I hope your summer is off to a great start!
*NOTE: NO CHANGES CAN BE MADE TO CLASS LISTS. We have worked many hours with feedback from you and the teachers to create these lists keeping in mind the best needs of the learners and the gifts that each teacher brings to the classroom environment each year.
Second Grade celebrates “everyone is a friend.” I will truly miss your children. Thank you for sharing them with me. I look forward to seeing them in the fall. Report cards will be mailed on Monday. You can visit your child’s 3rd grade teacher’s blog on June 17th to see the class list for your child. Also, watch for a school supply list on July 1st. Here are a few things to remember to do with your child this summer:
Xtramath for fact fluency practice (addition, subtraction & multiplication)
It was a fantastic day for second grade to celebrate our READING. The stamina was wonderful despite the distractions around them. They have really grown as readers. Tomorrow we will be getting autographs. If you have an old shirt that you would let them sign, please send/wear it. If you don’t have a shirt, they will have a paper to get signatures.
Second Graders continue to celebrate! We walked to What’s the Scoop to enjoy a delightful dessert and were dancing on the sidewalk to some wonderful tunes. It was a perfect day for dancing outside. Tomorrow we will be adding an extra Giggle to our day. The children do have homework today and will need to write a riddle or joke down to share with the class. Thank you for assisting us!
Here are a few pictures from our 2nd Grade celebrates by making math chalk drawings. Tomorrow is Dessert and Dance party Day. We would like to take the kids to What’s the Scoop. If you would like your child to participate, please send in money for them to order. Thanks!
For Nutty Name Day, each of us made up a Nutty Name. We wrote it on a label so that everyone knew what to call us. It did add some extra excitement to the day. We played math games 3 times today. Some of us played dominoes, last rectangle, and odd/even addition.
Hi my name is August. I made it to the Million Word Club. My teacher says that I am a reading machine. I can read up to 3 chapter books a day. My favorite series is Warriors. My parents tell me to get to bed because I am reading instead of sleeping. I past the record for the most reading counts points. This time I had 265 points. I made it past 100 each time and earned pizza party and some ice cream. My advice to you is to READ all the time. I challenge you to beat my record. Good Luck!
Today was the pizza party for everyone that earned 50 reading counts points. We also had ice cream for making it over 100 points and because August broke the record he shared his earnings. There were 11 students that surpassed their goals (reading more than 50). The 11 students read a total of 1055 points. GREAT JOB!
Congratulations Hannah on winning the Ipod Shuffle!
