Happiest of Springtime.  I hope your break was wonderful.  Don't forget our Virtual Book Fair opens today.  The link in below in my April 4th entry.  We are working hard to ensure, as a team, we provide for all learners an easy and accessible way for them to continue to grow, practice and learn at home.  Our format will be changing next week and I will keep everyone informed.  A reminder that we will only have one meeting a week-this Zoom Meeting will be on Fridays at 12pm.  I will send out a reminder on Friday morning with our meeting code.  In the meantime continue to share with me those pictures of your camper creating, reading, writing, practicing and/or having fun as I will create a weekly PowerPoint for all to enjoy after our meeting!

This week I have enjoyed meeting with each student in a small group setting via ZOOM.  I loved hearing about how they were spending their time at home.  So many are enjoying plans I sent and activities we've posted as well as the creative activities you too have arranged for them.  I am honored to be part of this beautiful circle of campers.  I have attached Week of Learning PowerPoint of our in my files and documents tab.  Enjoy!

March 31, 2020  Don't forget to get Cozy and warm while reading as it is ARCTIC day! Find some pictures of arctic animals online to color and write about.  Build an igloo inside...maybe pretend your kitchen table is one.  What would your day look like if you were a polar bear?   Have fun today while you learn!

It's Virtual Spirit Week! Today's focus is the FOREST.   Build a tent and read with your favorite animal. PebbleGo is a great site to read about all kinds of animals and their habitats.   Don't forget to send me pictures for the class PowerPoint!

Some reminders:  Scholastic and Origo have Week 2 lessons up and ready for you to start.

Don't forget the assignments on Dreambox and Raz-kids. For students to get the maximum benefit, Dreambox recommends 20 minutes daily. Make sure to read for 20 minutes daily, too!

Our Encore teachers and Resource teachers have included activities on their class pages. Don't forget to check those out! Miss Bonner has art activities, Mrs. Dickens made a Flipgrid of STEAM activities, and Mrs. Osborn has shared some great extension activities.

Hello Campers!  Today is a wonderful day to stay inside and learn!  Our 2nd grade team met and found a calendar filled with ideas that require no technology.  Can you believe it?  WE can learn and grow without the use of our technology.  So, I challenge you to go the files and documents section at the left of this page and download this calendar of ideas!  Post what you do!!!  I'll be checking my text and email all day!

Today, the second grade team is recommending a Scholastic resource for reading and an Origo resource for math.  Both are optional.  :)

Scholastic has created free lessons for you to use at home for remote learning. There are great books included in the lessons which include online and offline activities. Please note that there is a "Dive Deeper" section for students to explore the learning topic in more depth which directs the student to other websites. I have explored some of those sites and they seem safe. Keep this in mind as you use Scholastic to support your home learning.

The math series that PWC adopted this year, Origo, has released weekly plans that families can use to support students’ learning in math.  Each week Origo at Home will release a new week of plans.  They include will include a book to read and discuss together, a short math concept video, activities, games and practice sheets.  There will be extension opportunities included as well.  We’ll let you know each week if the concept Origo is sharing is a review concept or a new concept for our students.  This week's concept is doubling which is a review but with 2-digit numbers.

An additional pacing guide showing the objectives that have already been taught this school year has been added to the File and Documents tab to the left.  We have been informed by the county officials that students should be reviewing already taught objectives so this would be the document to use as you look for topics to review.  Please email me if you have any questions."

The Second Grade Instructional Pacing Guide can be found to the left of this screen under files and documents.  This is our calendar for what we are teaching for the rest of the year in Second Grade.
