Student Information 2017-2018
Welcome to our classroom! It is going to be a great year! I am excited to be your child's teacher this year. 2nd grade is an exciting time. We are looking forward to a year of new adventures! Please review the information on this document and answer each item. If you have any questions, please contact me at the school. Thank you!
Welcome to Room 16!
I have chosen to use tables instead of desks. Desks can be a source of a lot of distractions, and they are difficult to move out of the way when we want to do large group activities or science experiments. Tables are a wonderful way to encourage students to work together in cooperative groups. I have one standing table, and floor space for students to work as well! Students will keep their pencils and supplies in a small box on their table.. Crayons, scissors, markers, and extra supplies will be kept in a tub labeled with your child's name in their cubby.
Monday Folder
Every Monday your child will bring home a folder (Monday Folder). Inside will be all of your child's work from the previous week plus any school or classroom memos. Please take the time to sit down with your child and go through the papers in the folder. This is a good chance for you to receive feedback on how your child is doing in class. Some papers will have a score of 1, 2, 3, or 4 on them. A Score of "3" means that your child demonstrated the expected skill. A Score of "2" means that they were close to the expected skill. A Score of "1" means that your child does not yet have understanding of the skill. You will also see scores of "2.5" and "3.5" as in-between scores. A Score of "4" is rare, and is given to students who demonstrate a very high level of skill on a task, significantly beyond what was presented in class.

Most papers in the folder will not have a grade on them. Some of the class projects we will either correct as a whole class, or the papers were inteded to be a practice page. After you have read through all items, please keep the papers at home, sign the comment page, and return the folder to school on Friday morning.

Homework
ASSIGNMENT
• Read for 20 minutes out loud each night. We will send home a homework "bookmark" that your child can keep in their reading book and fill it out each night.
• Review the weekly words. Make sure you child can read all of the words, and knows the meaning of each word.
Discipline
The following rules apply to our classroom, and will be in effect at all times:
• Follow directions the first time they are given.
• Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
• No teasing or name calling.

If a student chooses to break a rule and disrupt class, the following consequences will be utilized:

• Problem Solving Plan or phone calls home.
• With serious or ongoing problems, the Student and Teacher will call home to explain problem and solution and to follow up on the Problem Solving Plan.
• A Problem Solving Team Meeting with the Teacher, Parent, Student and Principal may also be utilized.

Any severe misbehavior, such as fighting or verbal abuse will result in the immediate imposition of the severe clause and the student will be removed from class and sent to the principal. Any teasing, name calling, or disrespect for classmates, teachers, or other school personnel will result in the immediate imposition of the severe clause and the student will be removed from class and sent to the principal.

specific permission slip, he/she will be able to attend if you answer the statement below and we receive verbal

Technology
This year we will be using many forms of technology for communication and instruction! We have a class website that has pictures, weekly newsletters, a calendar of events, important links, and lots of useful information for both students and parents! I like to post photos of students working diligently in our classroom, but I never post names to go along with any photos. We also often work on podcasts, blogs, and videos in class. I like to post these projects on our classroom website, SchoolTube, SeeSaw, BMSA YouTube channel, and our class Twitter account so that parents can see the amazing things the students will be doing. Please view our classroom website at www.mrsmiller.org to see the many ways that technology is used in our classroom. I have updated it for our classroom, and you can read all about my family!
