    Welcome to our Second Grade Class.  We have many exciting events planned for the year and learning many new things this year.  Remember sounds of the letters are very important so we can begin our reading experience.  Hopefully you enjoy reading to your child at home, because this will increase their skills as well. By the end of second grade, we should be reading about 100 words per minute.

    The children will be using scissors and glue throughout the year.  We also will be using dry erase markers, crayongs, pencils, and folders (yellow, green, and blue).  Headphones will also be used for computers and listening center.  Please send in with your child so they can take ownership of thier items. (The is when we return to Drum's school building.)


    The following is the letter posted on Dojo:


     Dear Parents,

    I am very excited to have your children in my class this year! This year will be memorable for sure! Here are a few tips to help through the beginning of the school year. Your child has been placed in the session you requested. If you did not request a session, a message will come tomorrow with which one they were assigned.

    Set up a quiet work space with minimal distractions for your child. (TV off, no toys, etc.) Make sure the backdrop behind your child is appropriate for all to see.

    Be sure to have a good breakfast.

    If you are assigned to the morning session, be logged onto Teams and be ready to “join a meeting” at 9:15.

    If you are assigned to the afternoon session, be logged onto Teams and be ready to “join a meeting” at 12:45.

    I will provide a fifteen-minute snack break, bathroom break and transition time in each session. (AM session snack/bathroom break will be at 10:30, PM session snack/bathroom break will be at 2:00) Please refrain from eating during class time.

    Have the following supplies ready for each day…

    Notebook for class (get any notebook that you like)

    Folder to keep completed papers

    Whiteboard / whiteboard marker




    Glue stick


    5 pennies, 5 nickels, 10 dimes, 4 quarters, and 1 dollar bill

    Portions of the live lessons will be recorded and posted in Microsoft Teams to be viewed later, if live lessons are missed.

     If you have any questions, you can email or send a message through Dojo.  Smile and have a great day.
