Welcome to Mrs. Stanley's Second Grade Classroom! 

Announcements

Week of 9/16-9/20
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 and happy Friday the 13th!!! 


We had an awesome week this week! This is just a friendly reminder that homework is due on Friday, please make sure your child is completing the homework in its entirety as it is taken for a grade. It is very important for your child to read for 20 minutes every night on their independent reading level. Please have your child answer two questions from their booklet of questions orally. Also, the words that came home in their folders are their spelling words. They can practice their sorts at home and the words do not need to come back. We will have the same spelling words for two weeks. This coming up Friday we will have our spelling test. 

If you have any questions or concerns please give me a call or Email me and I would be glad to talk with you! 

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. 

 

Please let me know if you have any questions!!

Have a great weekend!!

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.)

 

 

We will have our class birthday celebration the last Friday in September which is the 27th. We will be celebrating our August and September birthdays on this date. If your child had a birthday in one of those two months you can feel free to bring in cupcakes, juice boxes, cookies, fruit, anything you would like just please let me know before hand. Also, if you could refrain from bringing anything with Peanuts in it for the class.  We will have the celebration at 1:30. 

 

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.
