Our Second Grade Class
Excellence in Action
Class Motto: "Onward and Upward!" We are preparing ourselves for Third Grade.
Class Encouragement: Don't Give Up and Be Patient! We are works-in-progress.
Class Citizenship: Do the right thing even when no one is watching.
Class Community: We are a team. We will help and take care of each other.
Class Life Lesson #1: We should listen and respect each other.
Class Work Ethic: Work hard! Then, play is way more fun!
Class RTI: Reading Together Is Fun
Class Discipline: We are establishing that our own personal choices determine the natural consequences in our lives. This includes making good choices and bad choices. Always remember to stop and think before you act or speak. Visible and immediate consequences are given with positive Dojo points for classroom citizenship. Negative Dojo Points reflect poor choices in the classroom.
Class Philosophy on Reading: Everyone Can Read! Find a Book that you Love and Read!
Class Favorite Study: "The United States Constitution" Our main focus was on "The Preamble" and "Notable People" in history that helped create our "Constitution." and the Three Branches of Government. Over two hundred years later, "The Constitution" is still the written source of our Country's Freedom, Liberty and Government. We have learned the Constitution Song.
Class Favorite Lesson: Noah Webster wrote our first American English Dictionary and Speller. He was friends with Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Benjamin Franklin.
Class Subject Areas: Reading, Language, Writing, Social Studies, Science, and Math
