Today we celebrated International Dot Day! This day is inspired by The Dot, a book written by Peter Reynolds. Our Second Graders read the story today in class and then participated in an art project to support the book’s theme of creativity and reaching one's potential. This book is read all over the world by teachers and students- spreading a message of finding courage and confidence within ourselves- and being brave enough to “Make a Mark”.
Tuesday, September 17th at 1:30pm is picture day! Please send your student’s order form in by Tuesday morning. Tuesday is also taco day for lunch. If your student is getting school lunch, feel free to send in an extra pair of clothes just in case of messes.

What wonderful things have been happening in second grade! This past week, students have been working on All About Me Bubbles. Each day, we discuss something new that makes us unique and special. Students have shared with each other and then have written and illustrated a picture to go with it. One of my favorite discussions is about what the students would like to be when they grow up. This week, we have also started our first math unit and explored the tools we will be using throughout the year. Finally, we have begun partner reading. We have discussed what makes a good partner and how to support each other during reading time. This class did amazing at partner reading and showed immense enthusiasm for working together. The class has been working very hard to show that they know the school and class expectations. We have already filled the link jar three times! To celebrate filling one of the jars, we celebrated with popsicles Friday afternoon. The students were so proud of themselves.
On Wednesday, the whole school celebrated lighting the RES light board twice with double recess. The students loved spending some extra time...
