Second Grade Supply List

Happy Summer!    Our classroom is full of materials that will help us grow as learners, but there are a few supplies that we ask children to provide if possible.

You may bring these to supplies to the Open House on Wednesday August 22.

Here is the suggested list of materials your child will need for second grade:

  •  Composition Book, wide ruled
  •  4 Dry Erase Markers labeled with your child’s name 
  •  1 Pencil box
  •  Sticky Notes (3×3 size)
  • 2 Glue Sticks
  • A pair of blunt child’s scissors labeled with your child’s name
  • A clean pair of tennis shoes for gym ( they don’t have to be new)
  • A pair of earbuds/headphones labeled with your child’s name( a piece of tape on the cord works well).
  • 1 game (to keep at school for the school year) your child can teach the rest of the class how to play during indoor recesses.  It can be returned at the end of the year.  Please write your child’s name on the box or bag.

Here are some other supplies that we use quite a bit within our classroom and would appreciate any donations.  These same items will be posted on our giving tree as we get closer to the fall as well.

Summer Learning

Dear Parents,

 

Studies have shown that students can lose up to 50% of learning during the summer vacation.   Georgetown is challenging you and your child to “KEEP ON LEARNING” this summer to prevent summer slide.  There are two ways to record your learning time:

 

Our goals for students over the summer are below. Students who reach or exceed goals will be entered in a drawing for an Amazon Gift Card (1 per grade). This is for their grade next year.

We Need Your Box Tops & Coke Caps!

COLLECT BOX TOPS & COKE CAPS

Did you know that every BOXTOP and every COKE CAP collected earns money for our school?   This summer we would like you to work hard to collect both. The money we earn will go toward a basketball hoop on our K/1 playground!

 

BOXTOPS:  Every completed BOXTOP sheet is worth $5.00.  If every child from Georgetown (approx 570) fills  one sheet this summer, our school will earn $2,750.   Many thanks to Lori Simpson and all of you who are on her team of BOX TOP counters, trimmers and packers.  This is a great program that pays off because of all of YOU! Download your form here:  Summer Box Tops

 

COKE CAPS:  Super easy. Save the caps and go online to enter collection!  COKE WEBSITE  (https://us.coca-cola.com/give/)   Select Georgetown Elementary and enter the code on the cap.   Now you can recycle the cap. No need to send it to school.

Welcome 2nd Grade 2018-2019

Welcome to our new second grade families!   Please make sure to register for email subscriptions  (upper right hand corner of blog) which alerts you via email when our classroom blog is updated.  We use the blog for classroom happenings, activities, and school special events.

Looking forward to the upcoming year… ENJOY YOUR SUMMER and treasure up some small moments to write about in the fall!    We will post a classroom supply list during the first few weeks of July (crazy to think about).

Our Future is Bright!

It is with mixed emotion that I ponder the thought of saying good-bye to 25 of the MOST AMAZING second grade children.  These children have become “my kiddos” and I love them all so dearly!  We have treasured many memories together and grown as learners.   Not only have we learned three digit addition, comprehension strategies and other curriculum concepts, but I trust that your child has gained confidence, a sense of self worth, respect for others and a knowledge of just how special they are.   Indeed they are INCREDIBLY SPECIAL!  Thank you for entrusting me with your precious jewels this year, they have richly blessed my life.

Math Update

Our second graders will be using various strategies including proof drawings, show all totals and new groups above/below to solve three digit equations.  The children will experiment with the strategies and discover which strategy works best for them.  Our main focus is on explaining the steps that we take to solve an equation.   We are very excited for this adventure :)!

Chasing Coral

On April 20th at 7pm in the Main Campus Auditorium, the HHS environmental team is sponsoring a free screening of the documentary Chasing Coral for the community.
The movie follows a team of divers and other scientists on their mission to document the devastating effects the human carbon-footprint has on the creatures that live in the ocean – specifically the coral reefs.
The HHS Green Team (environmental studies) has putted many hours into planning the event with the hopes that viewing the movie will have a big impact on people’s lives.
Below are links to the event (flyer and promo video).
