My dear 2nd grade families,
Words cannot even begin to express what a privilege it was teaching your children this year. I have not gotten so close to a group of kids so quickly. We quickly became a little family, so close in fact that it spurred on a wave of tears during our picture slide show. Instead of the memories making them happy like I thought, they expressed being sad to leave 2nd grade and honestly that’s how I feel too. These kiddos will ALWAYS have such a special place in my heart and I cannot believe the year is over. I’m not quite ready to see them go, which I guess is a good thing. They have taught me so much and I feel like I am a better educator because of them. Not only has it been a privilege teaching your children, but I have so enjoyed getting to know each of you. Please keep in touch. I would love to receive pictures of their summer adventures. I cannot thank you all enough for everything you did for our classroom this year. I feel my words cannot simply express how thankful I am for you all, this has been a fantastic year. Have a wonderful summer!!
-Math Review Packet available for download here (see downloadable file below). They received a print out which they started in class the other day but if it was conveniently lost you may print it out!
-Dreambox will be active all summer!! Please try to keep up the momentum of 5 lessons a week.
-Read 20 min every day. I cannot stress this enough. And read with your child. This is SO important so you make sure they’re reading accurately, and are actually reading not just looking like they’re reading for 20 min. 😉 They will be tested on DIBBLES again at the beginning of the year and it’s so important they read during the summer so they don’t drastically drop. They’re at a crucial age, they must be reading!!!
THANK YOU for all your help that made this day possible. We had an absolute blast. I transformed the room into a beach and we laid out on our beach towels and read and did beach theamed activities. It was so cool to see their faces as they walked into the room. They were so delighted and it made my whole year. We filled in a memory book, played some games, and made an edible craft. We had a delicious picnic at the beach (I would like to commend you all on what you all brought. We had a great variety, it wasn’t all sugar which I appreciate. It was the perfect balance. We had just the right amount of sweets and healthy!) and watched a memory slideshow of all the great things we did this year. I will try and figure out if I can upload the slideshow here....it’s about 25 min worth of pictures...we’ve done so much this year. For now here’s a mini slideshow of our “Day at the Beach.” Thank you again for all your help.
