Dinnette Johnson's Classroom: Welcome to 2nd Grade!

Partnering with Parents to Enrich the Student Learning Experience

Week of March 27, 2017. . .

What a blast it was to have author/illustrator Marty Kelley visit us on Thursday! This "recovering 2nd grade teacher" (he formerly taught in NH) taught us about the grit and patience needed to write. But he also taught us that we all have stories in us to write. 

A notice will be sent home this week for students to try out for the Children's Stage Adventures play. I hope many of my students sign up for this exciting and fun learning opportunity.

All in all, it's a quiet but busy week in our classroom as we close out March.

Student of the Month!

Congratulations to our February Student of the Month for Responsibility, Alara Cakir! Alara is a responsible student who is always ready to lend a helping hand. She is reliable and trustworthy. Way to go, Alara!

Our new character trait for March is Honesty. Benjamin Franklin said, "Honesty is the best policy." We'll be talking about honesty and reading a few books about honesty, too. The Student of the Month assembly will be on March 31.
