Welcome to Ms. Carlton's second grade class!
I am excited to have your child in my class this year. We will be learning and having a lot of fun along the way.
This year we will build our class foundation around the school motto, "Strong Minds, Strong Hearts, Strong Effort". I want all of our students to develop a growth mindset, which means knowing that if we work hard (strong effort), and we help each other (strong hearts), we can all "grow our brains" (strong minds).
We have blocks dedicated to language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies as well as time built in for encore classes, recess, and lunch. Expect lots of reading, writing, and mathematical FUN during this year as our students prepare to make the jump to third grade.
Remember, parent teacher communication is the key to a successful year!
