I am loooking forward to an amazing year! Second grade is the BEST!! It is full of changes but full of new learning experiences!!
At Bell, we are committed to building leaders among our students. We believe that by helping to instill the Leader in Me’s Seven Habits, we are setting students up for success. Behavior/work habit grades are earned based on your child’s ability to follow classroom and school-wide expectations. Weekly conduct grades are averaged for a final six weeks grade.
Our class will be using a Behavior Notebook System. Your child will be asked to record any misbehaviors in the class Behavior Notebook. Issues documented throughout the week will be recorded on their Behavior Chart daily. Please make sure you are checking the folder and initialing the calendar every day. This helps prevent a surprise concerning the conduct grade when progress reports/report cards go home. As Second graders, students are expected to discuss their behavior choices with you when they arrive home.
Classroom expectations include: following directions the first time they are asked, working/participating in class, staying in their assigned spot for instruction, using kind words/actions towards others, responding respectfully to others, following school-wide expectations, as well as, allowing other students in the class to learn.
In order to make every minute count in our classroom and maximize instruction time each day, students are asked to bring a water bottle to take with them to their classes throughout the day to help minimize the trips to the water fountain. Please make sure the bottle has a lid that closes to avoid spills on our classwork. Also, please send only water- no Gatorade or colored drinks, or carbonated/flavored water.
