    Welcome Letter


    Dear Parents,

    Welcome to second grade at Knoles School.  I am looking forward to a busy but exciting year.

    Your child will be learning about the life cycles of different animals and insects, weather, clouds, the water cycle and states of matter. We also research and write about butterflies, pollination, and many other exciting topics. We will explore what engineers do and create a hand pollinator and a windmill.  We help put on the Veteran’s Day Program, participate in kids voting and learn about our community.  We work on mapping, geography and landforms.  We will explore addition and subtraction to 1000 and read many exciting books, fables, and fairy tales. We will be writing  narrative stories, informational paragraphs, opinion stories and arguments.  We will use technology to help us learn by using the computer lab, the COW laptops and the second grade set of iPads.  We participate in Daily Five Reading and Math, Cooperative learning and  Accelerated Reader, as well as  take several field trips that help us link our learning to the world outside the school walls.  In other words, we stay very busy in second grade!

    Our classroom supply list is posted on the home page of the Knoles Website or you can find it on my webpage.  In order to save paper,  my weekly newsletters will be posted on my webpage.  Once I have your email I will send an alert when the newsletter posts.  Please feel free to contact me at anytime.  My contact information is listed below. Please send me your email address and the phone number that is easiest to get in touch with you.

    I am looking forward to a fabulous year.


    Yvonne Parent
