Mrs. Kelish - Second Grade - Community of Learners 2018 - 2019
The first day of school begins next Tuesday! This year's theme is a Global Endeavor! My mantra will be to Make Memorable, and Mindful Moments for the students in room 20!
I will create a risk-free active place where thinking is visible, nurtured, and valued. The classroom norms are learner-centered and knowledge-centered. I am a reflective practitioner, and your children will become reflective learners. We both ask, "Where are we in our learning continuum?"
Your children will learn and strengthen their learning targets and outcomes. They will be self-aware of what they know and what confuses them. They will be cognizant of their concepts, skills, strategies or content. That is, they will become independent learners.
I look forward to planning and nurturing your children. As a class, we will participate in captivating journeys of curiosity, discovery, investigation, experimentation, discourse, analysis, excitement, stewardship, and laughter!
