Hello!!  Welcome to second grade! We have so much planned and I cannot wait to get to know you and your family.

 

A little about me... I grew up in Cypress,Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University. My husband, Brent, and our two boys live in Tomball.  Our boys keep us very busy with their love of sports.  I enjoy being outside, shopping, watching movies, reading, and watching sports.  I have been teaching for seventeen years. I have spent the last twelve years teaching second grade at Magnolia Elementary. I absolutely love teaching and my MES family!


I will be teaching Reading, Writing and Phonics to your child this year.  They will be going to Mrs. Lawler for Math, Science, and Social Studies. We are so excited to watch your child learn this year. I think that when there is a strong line of communication established between teachers and parents, it encourages your child to do their best. Please do not hesitate to call or email with any questions or concerns.  I look forward to a successful year!

Week of September 18-22

Reading
We are continuing to practice our reader's workshop procedures.  The students are practicing their reading stamina.  Our goal is to read independently for at least 20 minutes by the end of the month.  Yesterday we read for 14 minutes! :)  
 
The students are also generating predictions before, during, and after reading.  
 
Writing
Writer's Workshop is in full swing.  I am amazed and excited about how much the students love to write and share their stories!  This week we are writing personal narratives.  We will also work on writing legibly and using complete sentences.
 
Daily Folder
Daily folders are coming home every day now.  They are a way for the students to stay organized.  There will be resources added as the year progresses.  Any notes from home and school can be placed in there too.
 
iStation
All students have taken their initial iStation test and can now work on it from home.  They all have a parent letter in their Daily Folder.  This will give you directions on how to log on at home.  I will also send one home in Tuesday Folder.
 

First Week of School

We had a wonderful first day of school!  I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. Its going to be an exciting year full of learning, laughter and fun.  I love being a teacher and getting a new class each year is such an awesome experience.
 
I spend the vast majority of time the first couple of weeks on routines and procedures S-L-O-W-L-Y at the beginning of the year.   I have to set clear expectations and practice them over and over to ensure successful learning for the rest of the year.  I will be emphasizing hard work and trying our best in all that we do. 
 
We will also be working on establishing our classroom family.  We are developing relationships with each other, which is very important and takes a great deal of time.  Please be patient with me as far as grades, papers, etc., my focus now is on your children and we want them loving school.  It's going to be a fantastic year and I already think your kids are awesome!  Thanks for trusting me to be your child's teacher.  I look forward to a fantastic year!
