National School District has added some electronic resources for our students. At our conferences this week I will be giving you a handout with passwords for this and many other resources which are links to the right of this post. Discovery Education is one of these resources which allows students to watch educational videos. Please check it out under the student resources on the right. Your username is your first initial+ capital last name initial + your student # for example your password would be your student # .So Tamlyn McKean student #12345 would be username=tM12345 and password =12345

I am adding some links for resources our district is trying out to see if students and parents find them useful.I will send out the username and passwords for each site in an email. Interactive e-Books is a collection of non-fiction books. Britannica online is an online encyclopedia, please choose elementary level. Britannica’s visual information can be found on Britannica ImageQuest. You will find these links on the left side of this page under “At School websitess” Here is a video on how to use Britannica online –Link
In class students are using SuccessMaker Math & Reading. Along with RAZkids or Headsprouts for reading fluency and comprehension. These websites are also available at home.
Hello and welcome to 2nd grade in Class D8. We had our back to school night this past Wednesday. I was unable to share this common core video. Please take a look. I will periodically add to this site, but I primarily use it as a way for parents and students to link to other resources, as you will see on the right side of this page.
We will be working to develop a growth mindset using various resources this year. I first learned about the growth mindset theory in a report on how struggling students academic their path around. I read the book Growth Mindset- The New Psychology of Success by Dr. Carol Dweck. The program ,Mind Up , will give us tools to practice.
I have set the students up on our Think Central Site to have them access math practice at home. I encourage everyone to work on their math at home if you can. We will also have access at school during math time. However, as you know, practice helps everyone to make more brain connections and understand the math better!
Here is the Student Quick Start Guide for you to get started:
Students do not need to wear uniforms tomorrow because of picture day. They will need to send in payment or pay online for any pictures before they get the pictures taken. We sent home the fundraising packets today. Please take a look in their backpacks.
I am excited to have my new students with me this year. We have successfully completed our first week. We are excited about our new learning and want to share it with our parents and family. I hope that all parents will try to make it to our Back to School Night this Wed. , August 5th at 5:30. We will be working closely with our families this year to ensure success. This will be a great way to kick everything off with a bang! See you then.
