Hurricane Florence

I hope you ALL enjoy the long weekend! We have worked hard this week in school! Double check the Thursday Folder and Dolphin Folder for any information that needs to come back to school.

One thing I have tried to teach a lot of the kiddos this week is how to tie their shoes using this easy method. This would be a great weekend to work on it! 🙂  I used this video to teach my own children and it is a game changer! Stay dry and safe!

Theme Days and Time Capsule

Wow! The end of the year has arrived! In 2nd grade, we will be celebrating theme days during the last two weeks of school. I know this is a busy time for parents as well, so I will be talking with the students about how they need to be responsible for bringing their belongings into school and not relying on a parent to organize it for them! If you are interested in donating any items for our theme days, please check out this link http://tiny.cc/KoontzEndoftheYear! Thank you!

In addition, a tradition of room 12 is to make a time capsule! We will be making time capsules for the students to keep for ten years…until high school graduation in 2028! I would love for you all to write your student a note or card and include any pictures you might want to put in the time capsule. It can be ANYTHING from what they like to do, fun facts about them, what you love about your child, etc. I will be placing several treasures in there as well. I will also encourage them to bring in small items to put in such as a crayon if they like drawing or nail polish or Pokeman cards…ANYTHING that that represents them! JUST REMEMBER…whatever is sent in must be able to be folded to fit into a wide mouth Mason jar. Notes, pictures, treasures, etc. will be DUE BY JUNE 11!  Thank you for your help! It is such a FUN project for the students!
