Hello! Welcome to Maria Gibson's second grade classroom! I am very excited to be working with your child this upcoming school year. We will be learning many new and interesting things in a very friendly and nurturing environment. In the classroom they will get a chance to explore, experiment and share ideas.The children will also learn how to work well in small groups as well as large groups.
In second grade we will be focusing on Math, Reading and Spelling, which they will get a letter grade in this year. They also will be introduced to English, Science and Social Studies and the world around them. They will be mastering their addition and subtraction facts, so please practice each night.
I look forward to working with the parents and families of my students, you will be and important part of a successful year. It is important to read your child's planner each night to see what assignments they have. I also send home a story note at the start of each story so that you know what will be covered on each day. Please save this important note so that you and your child know when the tests are. Keep this until the next one is sent home.
I know that this year will be a great one with your help. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me by note, call or email.
