Dear Second Grade Families,
It was a pleasure being with you all this year! Please know that the resources pages will be up all summer should you want to use anything. I have uploaded a summer math calendar to the Homework page and MobyMax will be available to you to use as well. Although the school year is over, please don't stop learning and exploring this summer. Read, be curious, explore your wonders and get your hands dirty! I hope you all stay safe and healthy, and have a lovely summer!

Hello Parents and Guardians,
Please be sure to sign your child up for the End of Year Zoom on Thursday, June 11th. Mrs. Morgan sent an email with the subject " Springwoods - 2nd grade families" on Monday with the google form link.  Once we know what time you've picked, you'll receive an email from me with the Zoom meeting link and password. Please email me if you have a question! I'm so excited to celebrate with you all!

Week 3 will look a little different! There are quite a few links to lessons made by teachers.  If you find yourself having trouble with the links, try using a different browser, checking that your computer software is up to date, or using a different device. Also, please remember that you download documents from the Homework section of our Class Page.

Feedback: If you would like feedback on your child's work please send it to me! I am more than happy to give positive feedback and answer your questions. A few words or sentences will help me understand what questions or problems you all are having at home.

If all else fails, we can always Zoom and I will do my best to help you! Please let me know and thank you for always keeping the lines of communication clear between us.

Hello Parents!
The OneNote Second Grade Virtual Schoolhouse Learning Calendar is up! All new resources will be posted in this notebook from now on.

To get access to the Learning Calendar, I've put links on the Main section, the Virtual Schoolhouse section, and the Homework section of our Class Page  If you're still confused how to get access to is, click on the Homework section to the left and watch the "Learning Calendar" Tutorial.

Please note that all work and Zoom meetings are optional.  The schedule is a suggested one for any families that need more guidance on how to schedule home learning.  Currently, you should have received a list of Useful Links and student information for those parents who replied to my email.  

Have a great evening!
Ms. Kang

Hello Parents and Guardians,
Next week, Springwoods will be starting Good News in the Woods, a daily news show and we will be doing our first Virtual Spirit Week.  For spirit week, please take a photo on twitter and tag @SPES_Eagles and @esther_kang. I can't wait to see everyone's spirit wear!

Also, please keep an eye out for an email about ZOOM.  I'm hoping to start a meetup with the class in the coming week. Stay happy and healthy!- MK

For parents who want to do project based learning with their child at home, I've created an At Home Projects page.  Project 1 for this week is up! I will update it with new projects weekly.  Students may be making connections to our read aloud, The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies. If you want to, you can check it out from the public library or order it online.
