Welcome to the Solis's Smarties webpage! I am so excited to welcome a new group of 2nd graders for the 2018-19 school year! I have designed this page to keep you updated on learning topics and important events that will occur throughout the year! This year your child will learn a great deal, both academically and socially! In second grade, the students work very hard on transitioning from learning HOW to read, to reading for comprehension! In Math, students will practice their math addition and subtraction facts so that they know them automatically! Not only do students work very hard on academic skills, but we place a lot of emphasis on working together to accomplish common goals in the classroom. We are a pack of Smarties...and this pack sticks together! I look forward to working with you this year to help your child be successful!
It's an adjustment to get back into the swing of the school year! Here are a few ideas for helping your child get ready for the first day of school.
- Ask your child to think about something from their summer to share with the class.
- Talk with your child about some learning goals and hopes for this year. What do they want to learn? What do they hope second grade will be like?
- Starting about a week before school, help your child get back on a school schedule so they'll be well rested and have a great start to the year!
- Double check your second grade supply list and have a plan ready for getting school supplies to my classroom! Some families like to bring in everything on Open House Night Thursday, August 30th 4:00-6:45, while others like to send in supplies a bit at a time over the first few days of school. In order to help with parking, please see the schedule for arrival that night.
- A-F: 4:00-4:45
- G-M: 5:00-5:45
- N-Z: 6:00-6:45
Enjoy the rest of your summer! I look forward to meeting your child at Open House or on the first day of school!
