What a fabulous start to the school year! The first 2 "first" days and our second day were filled with fun and getting to know each other. We have begun learning the expectations of 2nd grade and practicing routines. The next few weeks we will continue learning our routines. Once these are set, we can get into our material more in depth.
This week, we will be observing the wetlands, beginning our Learning Links, looking at characters in our books, beginning our Daily 5 routines, taking our first STAR assessments, and practicing our math fact program. If you haven't had the opportunity to look at the "Parent Mastering Math Fact Explanation" sheet sent home at Meet the Teacher, please do so. Here is a digital copy of it for your convenience. It is very important that the students practice the program correctly.
The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.

I enjoy problem solving, designing, creating, communicating, collaborating, etc.... all of which I expect my students to do. I hope that we have an enjoyable and successful year!
