Ms. Roemer's Classroom

                              

Welcome To Second Grade!

I’m very excited to welcome you back to school! I’m looking forward to a fantastic school year. In combination with our class syllabus, this website should help answer some questions you may have about 2nd grade. Please re-visit our classroom website often since it will serve as one of our platforms for communication. I will  frequently be posting about events, reminders and homework!

 

Let's have a great school year laugh


Supplies List

In order to start the school year ready and eager to learn, both the students and our classroom need to be fully prepared. Please send your child to school with the following materials:

  • Pencil box (no larger than 8″ x 5″ x 3″)
  • All-Purpose Glue Sticks, .77 oz. or larger (2)
  • Presharpened Pencils (1 box)
    • Eraser caps, and a hand-held sharpener
  • Presharpened Colored Pencils (1 box)
  • Student Scissors
  • Crayons (Crayola “Twistables” are ideal as they last the longest.)
  • Tissues (2 boxes)
  • Clorox Wipes (2-3 containers)
  • 2-Pocket Folder (2) 
    • For Social Studies and Homework
  • Extra Clothes
    • Please put an extra set of clothing (top, bottoms, underwear, and socks) in a bag.  The bag will be kept in your child’s locker in case a change of clothes is ever needed.  
  • Water bottle
    • This will go between home and school, but it's ideal that each child have their own water during the school day

Please be sure to label all items with your child's name!

Overall Learning Goals

As an educator, I want to scaffold each student and move from the basic who, what, when and where, and provide them with the necessary tools and resources to embrace a higher level of thinking; this higher level of thinking will be prompted by Big Ideas and Essential Questions.   

 

 


Essential Questions

 

  • How do bodies of water affect where we live, and other global communities?
  • How do natural disasters affect people all over the world?
  • Why are bodies of water important for our ecosystems?
  • What are some of the similarities and differences amongst various global communities?  

Big Ideas

 
  • Understanding how to visually identify and orally name the seven continents and five oceans
  • Differentiating between bodies of water
  • How oceans and continents define one another
  • How bodies of water affect populations and cultures

 

 


Homework

A lot of questions parents usually have are how they can best help their child with homework. Please do not do your child’s homework. Homework is an assessment tool that allows me to see what concepts your child is understanding, or what they may need help on. The goal for homework is to practice the skills taught in class, foster independence and understand the objective of time management skills. Healthy help is making sure your child understands the directions. Check it over. If you see errors, say something like, “You might want to go back and check your spelling or take a look at this page again."

We will also be using online tools as a means for homework. Links to those homework sites can always be found here:
