Dear Parents and Super Smart Second Graders, 

I hope everyone is having a great day! I miss you guys!  If I get any new updates from Mr.Kelchlin I will let you know.  I saw so many of you reading on Raz Kids and practicing math on Dreambox yesterday.  I gave out extra bonus points in Raz Kids so check out your total. Here are two more ideas for math and reading:                      

The math series that PWC adopted this year, Origo, has released weekly plans that families can use to support students’ learning in math.  Each week Origo at Home will release a new week of plans.  They include will include a book to read and discuss together, a short math concept video, activities, games and practice sheets.  There will be extension opportunities included as well.  I’ll let you know each week if the concept Origo is sharing is a review concept or a new concept for our students.


Scholastic has created free lessons for you to use at home for remote learning. There are great books included in the lessons which include online and offline activities. Please note that there is a "Dive Deeper" section for students to explore the learning topic in more depth which directs the student to other websites. I have explored some of those sites and they seem safe. Keep this in mind as you use Scholastic to support your home learning.


I miss you! Keep up that reading at home!

😊 Ms. Baird



Dear Parents and My Super Smart Second Graders,                                        March 23, 2020

I miss you! I can’t believe it’s already been a week without you. I’m going to send you an email every day to see what you are doing and give you ideas for learning fun. I LOVE the emails I’ve been getting from you about the power point presentations, art projects, exercise, spider stories and books you have been reading at home.  Please keep sending those to me!

On our class webpage, there are links to two pacing calendars: one calendar is what we already learned so you can review those topics.  The other calendar is what we are going to learn for the rest of the year.  Both pacing guide/calendars are under the File and Documents part of our class webpage.

The main thing to remember for today is to login to your Microsoft365 account so you can see Clever.  Once you’re in Clever, use Raz Kids for reading and Dreambox for math.  Both of these websites are on your own individual level. If you need help please email me and I can help you figure it out.

I’ve been reading so much everyday- I hope you are, too! I miss my little Second Grade friends…

😊 Ms. Baird

An additional pacing guide showing the objectives that have already been taught this school year has been added to the File and Documents tab to the left.  We have been informed by the county officials that students should be reviewing already taught objectives so this would be the document to use as you look for topics to review.  Please email me if you have any questions."
