Dear Future Second-Grader,
Welcome to second grade! I was so happy to meet you today, and I look forward to a super year!
You might be a little curious about your new teacher so here is a bit of information about me. I have enjoyed teaching children from preschool to grade five for many years. My favorite things to do include reading, running, singing, going to yard sales, and being with my three children. Their names are Matthew, Genevieve, and Bowen.
Second grade is a special time. We will observe the metamorphosis of the butterfly, do science experiments with solids, liquids, and gases, study weather, build a community out of blocks of wood, and do lots of reading, writing, and math.
I hope you have a fun summer full of all your favorite activities. I look forward to lots of reading and seeing friends. I hope you will take time for reading this summer too!!! My children and I love to go to the library, especially in the summer. It’s air-conditioned, it’s free, and I always leave with a bag of books that I can’t wait to dive into. I always have a big stack of books on my bedside table. Lately, I’m really into historical fiction. I wonder what you like to read.
I’d like your parents to send me the email address(es) they would like me to use to communicate. I’ll send them an email and invite you to meet me at the library one day this summer. That will be fun! Your parents can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can check out my blog at msmorrison2ndgrade.blogspot.com. You can also find it on the Happy Hollow website.
On the first day of school, bring a SMILE, and be ready to start our learning adventure!
