Exciting News! Our class is piloting a new program called SeeSaw.  This will allow the students much more independent and collaborative work time in a very constructive way.  Using iPads, I present students with activites that they can complete through writing, drawing, and recording their voice.  The program also allows me to communicate back and forth with students, as well as communication between students!  I'm just learning how it all works, but I'm very excited about the possibilities!! In o ...Continue Reading

Due to 2 short weeks in a row: [*]No homework this week. [*]Spelling and sight words are the same and will be tested this Friday. We are now working on counting money.  Any support you can give on helping the kids identify and tell the value of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters will be appreciated.  The more difficult next step is counting the coins when they are all mixed up together.  Look for practice papers in next week's homework. ...Continue Reading

Dear Families, I have heard from several of you about the difficulty of Monday's math homework.  Please do NOT worry about completing the back page!  Some of the problems asked the students to regroup when we are just beginning 2 digit addition.  Most were not ready for that.  As long as they have the problems on page 127 done, I will count the assignment as complete. Sincerely, Mrs. Miller ...Continue Reading

Math Fact Fluency Dear Families, We are starting at home math fact practice.  Look for the letter and first set of facts to come home tomorrow.  Be sure that your child knows each fact in about _one second_ before letting me know that they are ready to be tested.  Students who cannot say each fact in about _one second_, will have the same facts returned for more practice.  Students who pass the level will get the next level sent home to work on. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank ...Continue Reading

Dear Parents, Today we worked on writing numbers that are greater than or less than other numbers.  The kids enjoyed it so much that they asked for homework.  Now, I am not requiring them to complete it and turn it in, but I will never deny a student an opportunity to learn more when they are asking for it!!  So, I gave an extra homework paper to everyone who wanted one.  I just wanted to be sure you understood why it was there.   ...Continue Reading

Lexia News: Several students have told me that Lexia is not working.  When I looked into the program, I discovered that all the passwords have been deleted, and I don't have the clearance to change them.  This must be done at the administration level.  Now, I am waiting to find out when this will be done.  I'll let you know when the program  becomes accessible to you at home. ...Continue Reading

Dear Families, We had a fabulous first day!  If your child doesn't have much to tell you, ask them about our class rules that we created, the book called First Day Jitters (with a surprise ending), or the pictures they drew of themselves. Breakfast was a little confusing.  If your child wants to buy breakfast in the morning, they must go FIRST THING when they enter the building, before they even come to the classroom.  They go through the cafeteria serving line and then bring the food down to the room. ...Continue Reading

Good morning families.  I hope you all had a great summer!  I really, truly did plan to have a class gathering this summer, but the summer got away from me.  Now here we are about ready to start a new school year!  I'm excited to meet my new students, but, of course, I will miss everyone from last year.  Please tell your child that I look forward to seeing them in the halls, and that I will come down to their 2nd grade room to say hello.   Good luck in 2nd grade.  I know you will all ...Continue Reading
