Welcome to my blog.
This blog will be a major source of information for you. You may want to bookmark it for your child. :)
I will be in touch with you via e-mail on a DAILY basis, but this blog can be a great resource of "extra practice" for content we are working on in class.
I am always very excited about the beginning of a new school year. The first week of school, we will get to know each other better and through activities and games, we will begin to work on improving social skills (like cooperation, kindness, following directions, etc.) that will benefit our learning throughout the year. Also during the first week, we will begin working in most of our content areas: reading, grammar, spelling, writing, and math. Our class will be delving into the Common Core Georgia Performance Standards in the areas of Reading, Language Arts and Math. I am excited about the new standards because I believe they allow for a deeper understanding of the content. Health, science and social studies will follow the second week of school. By the third week, I hope to be up to full speed and well into our journey through the second grade.
Parents, you will receive a couple of letters the first week of school that explain many of my daily/weekly procedures. It looks like a lot on paper, but in reality, it becomes routine in no time. Please take the time to read these letters very carefully so that you are "in the know."
Below are a few websites that will be beneficial throughout the year:
Math Magician (Use this to practice math facts each weekend and record practice on log that is located in your child's Take Home folder.)
Other sites you may want to visit- just for fun!

IT'S GOING TO BE A GREAT YEAR! LOTS OF FUN--- LOTS OF LEARNING--- LOTS OF NEW FRIENDS!
I CAN'T WAIT!
