THE DISTRICT OFFICE SUMMER HOURS ARE
MONDAY - THURSDAY 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Second Grade
Instructor: Ms. Barb Culley   
Welcome to 2nd grade in Ms. Culley's classroom!

The information below will give you a brief description of our typical day.  

PLANNER
The first thing that you should see when your child comes home each day is their planner.  They are available for purchase in the office.  We write in them each day, recording things that we do that day and reminders of upcoming important events or information.  

WRITING
Our academic day begins with Writing, using the Every Child a Writer curriculum.  I meet with four groups in 15 minute rotations.  During the three rotations after students meet with me, they will:
  • do a directed assignment to practice what we learned together
  • practice spelling words
  • take a "brain break" - playing literacy games

RECESS/SNACK
We have a morning recess following writing, and during that time, students are allowed to have a snack out on the playground.  Unfortunately, we do not have snacks to share.  If it is important for your child to have a mid-morning snack, please be sure to send a healthy snack each day.

MATH
After recess, we begin Math.  We practice math facts using Spaceship Math pages, and take one timed test per day.  Then we move into our daily "Go Math!" curriculum.  We typically go through two to three pages per day.  I will keep you notified of tests that will be upcoming using the daily planners.

LUNCH
Our daily lunch is from 11:30 - 12:00.  Please note that we accept lunch fee payments on line this year!  If you wish to join your child for lunch, feel free!  

SPECIALS
Immediately after lunch, we go to specials.  Our specials schedule is as follows:

Monday - Computer Lab
Tuesday - PE
Wednesday - Spanish
Thursday - Art
Friday - Music

READING
After specials, we go straight into reading. We use the Every Child a Reader curriculum, and it is set up in the same format as the writing program above.  I meet with four groups in 15 minute rotations.  During the three rotations after they meet with me, they will:
  • do a directed assignment to practice what we learned together
  • read silently for 15 minutes
  • take a "brain break" - play a quiet literacy game

RECESS
We then have our afternoon recess.

SCIENCE/SOCIAL STUDIES
Our last half hour of the day is our Science/Social Studies block.  We will study financial literacy, American History, Life, Earth, and Physical sciences.  

BIRTHDAYS
If your child wants to bring birthday treats to share, our policy is to do that during the last 10 minutes of the day - but we are happy to celebrate together!

HOMEWORK
Our homework goes home on Monday, and includes a reading and math fact practice log.  The homework and logs are due on Friday.  We have a spelling test each Friday.  

We work hard, and strive to have fun while we are doing it!  Learning is the best!
