Every year I usually have a "wish list" of items we need for the classroom. This year is a little different and instead of items for our physical classroom, I am finding I am making lots of purchases for digital resources. I put together a teacherspayteacherss campaign if you'd like to support it. :)
The above picture will link to my "virtual classroom" website. It is a work in process. I hope for it to hold everything we need for our virtual classroom as a "one stop shop!"
One of my favorite ways to communicate with parents to have a strong home/school connection is through class dojo and its messenger. I just signed everyone up and sent out parent links. Please sign up so you don't miss any important reminders, updates, etc!

Dear Parents and Family Members,
Thank you for taking time to check my class pages! I am very excited to begin our adventure together as your 2nd grade remote teacher!
Check back at least once a week because I will include many updates and important information every week.
We will all be learning and growing a lot this year as we embark on this new learning experience together! My goal is to provide your children with loving, safe, and comfortable learning environment in our remote classroom. We will be growing a lot this year as 2nd graders both academically, socially, and emotionally.
I will be guiding your children through our remote learning classroom and going over our expectations and routines during the first few days of school. I will be working hard to build connections and a sense of community within our remote classroom!
As a team, we will work to make this school year the best one yet!
I will be updating this page with more helpful information.
If you have not received an e-mail from me yet please reach out.
One thing you can do now is to be sure that your child can log into their school Gmail.
As a reminder, the student Gmail is as follows:
They will also need to join our google classroom for the first day of school. The code is in the first e-mail I sent to all parents. I will also be sending out an invitation to join our classroom through their school e-mails.
Here is a link to our google classroom:
Thank you for being loving, supportive, and caring parents.
Second Graders! I can't wait to see you all on our first day of school, Tuesday, September 8th!
